We’re Norton Rose Fulbright – a global law firm with over 50 offices and 7, employees worldwide.

Our London office is currently recruiting for two mid-level corporate associates. As well as the relevant skills and experience, we’re looking for people who are innovative, commercial and value the work that they do.

The Team

The team is the larger of our two corporate teams in London, acting on a wide range of public and private M&A, ECM and corporate advisory mandates for clients in multiple sectors and across multiple geographies, but with a particular focus on clients in the energy (particularly clean energy), infrastructure, mining, transport and real estate sectors. A number of our clients are FTSE or FTSE companies and the team has a very international client base, operating in both developed and emerging markets with a number of partners focusing on transactions in Asia, Africa and the CIS.

The Role

An opportunity has arisen for two mid-level associates with experience of cross-border private M&A and/or public company M&A/ECM experience, or a combination of these. We are seeking experienced associates who are willing and able to take a high level of responsibility on a range of international corporate work and help us build client relationships.
