Singapore has no quarantine and is relaxing their travel restrictions (unlike other Asian countries) and the firm is open to considering associates in the US / outside of Asia as well as candidates with a US JD who are already in the Asia markets. ECM / IPO experience is very helpful but not required as long as you know your way around a prospectus.
You can be based in New York, London, or the Bay Area – and this team will even consider fully remote candidates on a case-by-case basis. They have hired remotely into this team and are committed to integrating all of their hires, regardless of working preference (in-office, hybrid, fully remote).
Jowers | Vargas is helping multiple top US firms in Hong Kong hire mid-level (3rd year+) M&A / PE associates with full business fluency in Mandarin.
While candidates with a mixed background (i.e. M&A and other areas of the law) will be considered, they must all have significant M&A experience to qualify for these roles.You would be eligible for a COLA on top of Cravath base + bonus for all these roles.
We have placed US Tax Associates into this practice group before in Hong Kong and they are looking to hire additional members to their team. You would be working alongside this team’s market-leading Fund Formation and PE / M&A teams, so any experience working on US Tax issues in conjunction with Fund Formation or Private Equity transactions would be extremely helpful.
They will consider an array of class years – 1st through 7th Years – especially with a Biotech or Chemistry background.
A fully remote work setup is 100% OK as long as you are qualified to practice *somewhere* in the USA. “Popular” states like New York or California are OK, as are states like Colorado where everyone seems to be moving to!
This firm routinely hires out of large BigLaw firms. Firm management DOES NOT CARE if you work in the office 5 days a week or if you’re nestled in your cabin in the woods. They have offices in Texas, New York, Boston, Seattle, and DC and would also be just as happy if you’re based near any of those locations. Only restriction – you *cannot* be based (eating / sleeping) in California.
Must have meaningful M&A experience running major M&A / PE deals, ideally as lead associate, definitely getting out of the diligence room and starting to negotiate key parts of the SPA / merger agreement.
You will be working on a mix of deals – M&A, Equity Capital Markets, and Debt Capital Markets and the attorney you’ll be working closest with is a “rising star” in the region. We know him well and have advised him through his past career moves.
