Managing Associate - DCM - London
At Addleshaw Goddard we not only provide technical excellence and experience but, crucially, demonstrate real insight into our clients and what really matters to them. A natural choice for FTSE100 clients and for the best talent, our people fulfill their potential in an environment where they are developed and valued. They think in our clients’ shoes, as part of a team - effective business people as well as efficient lawyers.
Following a recent partner hire, we are now looking for a Managing Associate to join our growing DCM team in London.
Role and responsibility
The team advises on a wide range of DCM work, both public and private, and secured and unsecured. It is particularly renowned for its role in advising managers and trustees on social housing bond issues, and is recognised as being Tier 1 for this in both Chambers and Legal 500. The ideal candidate will therefore have experience of advising in this sector.
More broadly, the team will be providing DCM support to other areas of the firm, including corporate and real estate. A knowledge of both secured and structured bond issues, in addition to 'plain vanilla' debt will therefore also be preferable.
As part of a growing DCM team, the ideal candidate will also be required to work alongside, mentor and develop trainees and junior associates.
The successful candidate will have:
- Excellent academic record with a minimum 2:1 degree or equivalent from a distinguished University.
- Trained at a private practice firm specialising in debt capital markets.
- Experience of advising both UK clearing banks, as managers/dealers, and trustees/agents.
- Experience of both social housing finance and more general DCM work, including secured bonds and structured issues.
- Solid experience of London listed public bond issues.
- Good client management and organisational skills.
- Experience of delegating to, and working with, trainees and junior associates.
