About the role:

Responsibilities:

A varied legal role which involves:

· advising on a broad spectrum of corporate, regulatory, privacy and governance issues; and

· contributing to multi-business and jurisdictionally strategic projects, new products and corporate reorganisations.

The role will have a particular focus on the UK but may involve matters arising across EMEA or globally. Advice will often be given in a multi-jurisdictional context and therefore the ideal candidate will be able to understand jurisdictional differences and nuances and tailor their advice accordingly.

Please note: This role is only open to experienced lawyers.

  • Advising management and corporate functions on legal and regulatory requirements across a broad spectrum of topics, including governance, outsourcing, data protection, AML, the UK Senior Managers and Certification Regime, and CASS
  • Reviewing corporate policies and procedures to ensure that they meet local legal and regulatory requirements
  • Providing legal advice on regulatory reforms to help internal clients understand their impact and design appropriate implementation plans
  • Instructing and managing external counsel
  • Collaborating with and seeking input from lawyers in the US and across EMEA, ensuring consistency of approach wherever appropriate given legal and regulatory requirements
  • Advising on the regulatory aspects of corporate re-organisation and expansion projects and cross functional or jurisdictional corporate projects

Skills:

  • Able to communicate legal advice on complex issues clearly and concisely
  • A self-starter, able to work independently (seeking support when needed) and able to juggle competing priorities
  • Experience of working on cross border projects or transactions
  • A collaborative working approach, able to build networks and work effectively on multi-stakeholder projects and to integrate different cultural perspectives
  • Sufficient gravitas and credibility to be able to engage with senior stakeholders autonomously
  • Prior financial services regulatory experience is desirable, but more important is a curious mindset, excellent legal skills, and an ability to quickly pick up new topics

If interested, please apply. Alternatively, email chris.norton@goodmanmasson.com
