A leading global investment bank is looking for an accomplished derivatives lawyer for a permanent VP-level legal counsel hire. This role will sit in the bank's Markets Legal team supporting a variety of trading and structuring desks and would provide a broad blend of transactional, advisory and regulatory derivatives work with a slight focus towards FX products.

This would see you working on complex and high-end structured transactions, mostly linked to derivatives and would involve advising on and undertaking project work relating to key regulations in this area.

Experience working in a similar Markets Legal team would be beneficial as would general derivatives experience, familiarity with trading documentation such as ISDA Master Agreements, regulations such as EMIR and MIFID2 as well as FX/currency products. You must have experience working in-house for a financial institution to be considered for this role.
