Do You Want To Be Part Of Something Different?
We are looking for a lawyer to join our highly regarded Private Funds practice. Experienced funds lawyers or a corporate or banking lawyers looking for a new challenge to convert to this technical but transactional area.
Get in touch if you are open to discussing a left field opportunity and be part of the growth story of a challenger practice to the established London funds formation firms. You'll live in the beautiful West Country while carrying on London quality work and looking for a path to partnership.
The practice is led by Jeremy Bell. Jeremy spent more than 20 years in a leading City funds practice, before seeing the light when the opportunity came up to relocate in 2017 to the West Country with his family while continuing to do City quality funds work. He now lives by the forest with a 20 minute commute by bike to work, is highly focused on building the practice, and travels to London as needed, operating out of our excellent London office. Right now we are experiencing real momentum in the practice. You won’t find us yet in the Directories but we are doing really interesting work and were shortlisted for Funds Team of the Year last year in the British Legal Awards. We are a challenger to the existing funds practices with a first class value for money proposition.
Our focus is on small to medium cap fund managers (from start-ups up to €750m fund raise) in the alternative asset classes, as well as establishing managers/advisers and investing into funds. You will be fully involved in growing the business and have the opportunity to develop direct client relationships.
You will not need to be trained in Funds. A corporate or banking background can be excellent grounding for funds and we can help convert and grow skills.
Burges Salmon offers something very different from our competitors.Our one-site strategy means our lawyers are permanently based in Bristol and fosters a sense of collegiality and a positive working environment that we believe sets us apart from other firms.RollOnFriday had this quote in its 2019 survey: Burges Salmon “is and always has been about its people", said staff. "They seem to understand that if they just maintain a laser-like focus on that you can't go too wrong”.
As you would expect we also take training very seriously and have a structured training and development programme for all our lawyers.
