We are looking to expand our team with a talented and motivated structured finance associate to join our dynamic Global Financial Markets practice. Our market knowledge, pragmatism and commercial approach have earned us a strong reputation as a global leader in the market.

The position
We are looking for a Dutch law qualified associate (from 6 years' experience on) with a strong interest in structured finance work to join our Global Financial Markets practice in our Amsterdam office. We are interested to hear from lawyers with at least 6 years of experience in structured debt – ideally you have worked on: public and private transactions, advised on EUSR/STS compliance and receivables purchase facilities and have knowledge of factoring and discounting facilities – either from a similarly high-profile private practice or with relevant legal in-house experience. Knowledge of derivatives is useful. A Dutch law qualification is required for this position.

We are looking for a sharp and driven lawyer, with a vision for his/her specialism and an innovative mindset. We are looking for someone who is thorough and focused on content, while at the same time practical and commercially oriented in working methods and advice.

Our practice is fully integrated in the Global Financial Markets team and supported by Clifford Chances' market leading tax and litigation practices. We are at the forefront of legal tech developments and integrating these in our practice. Our Global Financial Markets team in Amsterdam also includes a fully integrated Fintech and Finreg group and the structured finance practice works closely together with these specialists.
