  • Identify prospective clients (corporate lawyers, tax lawyers, accountants, private equity and real estate deal teams, specialist tax teams, general counsel)
  • Build and execute a business plan (including forecasting revenue, costs, business trips, prospective clients)
  • Work with our clients 'business development' specialists
  • Market to identified individuals (pre-dominantly in face-to-face meetings)
  • Take ownership of transactions and the placement process to ensure our clients obtain the best service the market can offer


Required skills

  • A determination and appetite to drive a business forward
  • Articulate and personable
  • Pro-active with a 'can do' attitude
  • Working knowledge of M&A transactions (including knowledge in tax)
  • An ability to think commercially and outside of the box
