Investment Management - Trading Agreements Associate, New York

Investment Management - Trading Agreements Associate, New York

The Investment Management Practice of our Securities and Financial Services Department seeks an associate with one to three years of post-JD experience to join its trading agreements group, which represents hedge funds, mutual funds and investment advisers in the negotiation of their counterparty trading and account agreements. The ideal candidate would have experience with derivatives (ISDA Master Agreements and confirmations), futures and/or prime brokerage agreements, but does not need specifically buy-side experience—experience at a bank or sell-side client would also be useful. Some legal familiarity with investment advisory and fund formation work, secured transactions and/or bankruptcy would also be helpful but not required.
