Financial Regulation Lawyer - Edinburgh

Regulatory - Private Practice
Ref: 353 Date Posted: Tuesday 28 May 2024
Unique opportunity for a lawyer to join the Edinburgh offices of one of the largest  Financial Regulation Team  in the UK with a mix of 25 lawyers and compliance professionals split over Leeds, London and Edinburgh. The team has a very strong reputation for regulated lending and banking and is ranked in Band One of Chambers and Partners 2011 for Consumer Finance. The firm's Payments practice is also considered to be one of the leading Payments practices in the UK.  
Role Profile:
  • A strong and growing part of the team advises on wider regulatory issues, including the regulation of funds, wealth and asset management, insurance distribution, capital requirements and the client assets rules. The team's work is varied and interesting:  our advice ranges from retail customer terms and customer journeys (often at the cutting edge of product development), through to commercial interactions for highly regulated financial sector businesses, conduct matters, interaction with the FCA and the Financial Ombudsman, and remediation and contentious issues. The Financial Regulatory team also works closely with the firm's other teams on FS transactions, banking and funds structuring work.  The team is unstuffy and down to earth, but also highly ambitious and hardworking. Its approach to service delivery is highly commercial and innovative with an uncompromising approach to quality.
  • The firm are seeking a junior lawyer to join our high performing and busy team with excellent prospects for career development. We have a strong reputation for providing lawyers with early levels of responsibility within a supportive and stretching environment. Therefore anyone taking up this role can expect to have the opportunity to play a significant role in working for clients that are key to the Division and to the firm.    

Candidate Requirements:

  • Financial Regulation experience (or can demonstrate a keen and genuine interest) gained within a comparable environment and at an appropriate level and be looking to grow that knowledge in a proactive way.
  • A clear understanding of the operation and structure of a leading law firm and the ability to build strong client relationships.
