Investment Management Associate – New York

Our client, a Texas-HQ law firm, is searching for a growth hire in its top-rate Investment Management team at the mid-to-senior level.

The team provides assistance with the formation and on-going operation of investment funds engaging in a broad spectrum of investment activities from general investment in listed stocks to targeted acquisitions in a wide variety of industries, including in technology, digital assets, energy, real property, venture, businesses or investments. The team represents domestic and offshore investment vehicles, and serve as lead outside counsel to numerous investment funds who combined have tens of billions of dollars in assets under management.

The team prides itself on its ability to advise on all aspects of fund structuring, formation and operations throughout the life of a fund, including:

  • Private Offering Documents

The firm is headquartered in Texas; as such it takes pride in its fantastic ethos and focus on wellbeing and maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Its Partners and Associates are involved in business development and are encouraged to be leaders in knowledge management and leading diversity or pro bono initiatives.

One of the key sells of this law firm is that while it pays market rate, it tries incredibly hard to keep away from the ‘BigLaw’ experience – attorneys average 50-hour weeks and associates are encouraged to fully take their vacation leave and turn off their phones while they are away. Caregiver leave is very generous, and the culture is described as ‘kind and considerate, down-to-earth’ and a place where ‘a lot of people have families’.

Candidates must be qualified in New York.
