Our client, a Texas-HQ law firm, is searching for a growth hire in its top-rate syndicated and acquisition finance team at the mid-level (class of 2018-2020) in New York, Charlotte, Dallas, Chicago and Denver.
The team works on lender-side financing arrangements with a particular emphasis on arranging multi-jurisdictional subscription-secured credit facilities with top-tier real estate and private equity funds. The team also represents commercial banks and commercial paper conduits in connection with corporate and middle-market loans, leases, and securitization transactions.
The firm’s cross-border work is supported by offices in London, Mexico City and Shanghai.
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 – 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’.
The firm is also incredibly flexible, with most teams working 2-3 days in the office but reasonable accommodations being made for more or less office time.
Candidates must be qualified in the State for which they are applying. Pay is in accordance with BigLaw scale.
