This is a chance to break away from private practice and join a leading organisation which provides breaking news and market intelligence along with cutting edge technology and data for hedge funds, investment banks and law firms.

The Company

This leading, international organisation with offices in the UK, Asia and the USA have established a product, and therefore a way for professionals to access opaque or complex information through industry or company-specific analytics.

The product they have established accelerates understanding of complex deals, documentation terms and leveraged finance trends.

This arms its subscribers with unique searchable databases to analyse leveraged finance legal documentation and to interpret the results with ease.

They offer scoring & commentary of the most complex deals, with cross-checking for accuracy, transforming and loading data into bond and loan databases, which remain the leading and most comprehensive databases of terms/structures in the European market.

The product offering also includes event-driven covenant analysis on high-yield issuers in the secondary markets.

The Role: Legal Analyst - Leveraged Finance (UK Qualified Solicitor 2 PQE)

Based in London, however, this role is largely remote (the company was already largely remote before the pandemic; it would be important that you can go to the London office where required, which is likely to be once a quarter)

You will:

  • Analyse senior facilities agreements, high yield bond documents and companies' debt structures and write analytical reports on the same
  • Work closely with other senior lawyers and financial analysts to cover primary market offerings and topical situations
  • Research and proactively participate in generating content for the companies' clients through articles, market updates, webinars and podcasts
  • Utilise, maintain and harness the power of the companies' databases
  • Engage with and cultivate relationships with investors, subscribers and industry contacts


  • Strong post-qualification experience working in a finance and/ or capital markets group at a major law firm
  • Experience in drafting, reviewing and negotiating loan agreements, intercreditor agreements and, ideally, offering memoranda, indentures and ancillary documents
  • The ability to multi-task and work both independently and as a team player in a fast-paced environment with people from varied professional backgrounds

What's on offer?

  • Join a team of experienced, knowledgeable and passionate lawyer
  • Fast growth company with progression opportunities
  • Generous benefit package

This all makes for an incredibly interesting opportunity for a Solicitor in Leveraged Finance to join this rapidly growing and highly interesting organisation based in London.
