They also advise on Shari’a-compliant finance structures, equity offerings (including hybrid capital issues), debt issuance programmes, convertible securities, derivative securities, liability management and securitisations.
Successful applicants will: have a minimum of two years' post-qualification experience at amagic circle or US law firm ranked as top tier for debt capital markets; ideally have recent in-house legal experience at a leading financial services institution or corporate (directly or as a secondee); have a commitment to building a career as a legal consultant and be motivated to operate at a high level whilst working in this way; have a consultant mindset, including a flexible and adaptable outlook and approach; have proven project management skills; have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with an ability to interface at all levels, building strong relationships internally and externally; be resilient, autonomous and highly credible, with exemplary commercial/business acumen, client service ethic and commitment; have excellent academic credentials; and have a practising certificate (or equivalent) which entitles them to practise as a lawyer in the UAE.
