Our client, a truly global, full-service law firm is looking to hire a junior Associate in its Band 1 ranked Private Equity team in San Francisco. Any applicant may also be able to work from the Silicon Valley/Palo Alto offices.
The team assists its clients, mainly public and private multinational companies, private equity funds and their portfolio companies and financial institutions, on all matters relating to private equity transactions including leveraged buyouts.
Junior Associates are also welcome to work with the Corporate M&A team and will be encouraged to get involved in all types on transactions on this side including private company mergers, public mergers and hostile takeovers. There is even opportunity to gain experience in other areas like antitrust, but this is dependent on your desires (and you won’t be forced to do anything outside of private equity).
This law firm is particularly known for its excellent training and support from Seniors. There is no hierarchy – whereby Partners respect junior associates and they let you have the responsibility of getting the right level of work that you think you are ready for. This law firm is incredibly well known and is ranking across the US, APAC, Europe and the UK.
This is the kind of firm where making Partner is a genuine possibility. Partners and Seniors will take an active interest in your growth. You will be given a mentor from day one, with quarterly reviews on how you are finding things in the firm and things you might like to change.
Candidates must be qualified in California or New York (or have undertaken the UBE). Target hours are 2000 including 150 non-billables.
