Tier-one investment bank seeks a seasoned transactional lawyer to lead a team of lawyers supporting the private banking business of this institution.

This is a regional role and will involve managing an experienced team of lawyers across North Asia, providing support to a premium global private banking business.  Senior stakeholder management (both locally and globally) will comprise a key aspect of the role and as such, previous management experience and a high level of commercial acumen will be essential.

Previous experience supporting a wealth management business is highly desirable though candidates with more transactional/IBD experience will also be considered.   There will be a considerable focus on supporting growth of the business in China and as such it is essential that this person has significant China related deal experience, fluent Mandarin language skills and experience of working with the Chinese regulators.   In-house experience is preferable though senior lawyers currently working in private practice are also welcome to apply.
