    • Reviewing DD reports in order to understand key deal issues relevant to successful risk placement.
    • Leading negotiations with markets.
    • Managing processes through to successful close.
  • Assisting the team in developing consistent, market leading wordings and assisting junior team members in understanding complex policy matters.
  • You will be expected to assist in business development and where appropriate individually initiate and close new business opportunities from potential clients and the internal network.
  • Business development also includes feeding into promotional materials, attending presentations, conferences, marketing, and PR campaigns; researching and writing content for articles and publications as required.

  • The ability to demonstrate strong business acumen.
  • Experience of working in a client facing environment within Corporate/M&A law.
