Funds Management Lawyer

Due to continued growth and an influx of new work, a rare opportunity exists for a funds management lawyer. Join a vibrant, collegiate and stimulating environment with a high performance culture and a commitment to helping you achieve a sustainable work-life balance.

This role reports to Director, Legal and Compliance and will see you working closely with senior managers of one of Australia’s fastest growing funds management businesses. While the role calls for a specialist funds management lawyer, we have the flexibility to tailor your responsibilities to your level of experience. We will consider applicants who wish to work part-time.

Regardless of your level of experience, you will be called upon to contribute practical, commercially astute and accurate legal advice to enhance the business and ensure compliance with the regulatory framework.

To meet the high standards of the organisation, the ideal candidate will be proactive, “can do” and innovative. Juggling priorities, working collaboratively with your business colleagues and other lawyers and keeping cool under pressure are important attributes.

This role will see you providing advice on a wide variety of financial services regulatory matters including financial services licensing, marketing and distribution of financial products, the structuring, establishment and promotion of listed and unlisted funds. You will also provide advice to foreign and domestic institutional investors on their participation in a range of collective investment schemes and investment arrangements as well as custody, investment management and similar arrangements.

Suitable candidates will demonstrate:

  • Ability to work with multiple senior members of the management team and across internal departments
  • Ability to work independently, on their own initiative and under pressure
  • Able to demonstrate an analytical approach yet provide practical solutions to the business
  • Superior interpersonal and communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Strong organisational skills and the ability to multi-task
  • The ability to pay strong attention to detail, business acumen and sound judgment

About you:

  • A qualified lawyer – either in Australia or elsewhere with some PQE
  • Strong academic background with funds experience and good general corporate experience from a top-tier international law firm or funds management business
  • A solid understanding of the financial services environment including the relevant regulatory and compliance framework
  • Having strong drafting skills, attention to detail and team orientated
  • Mandarin speakers considered favourably

Salary will be commensurate with experience.
