Ship Finance and Offshore Non-contentious Lawyer
SGD 174000 to SGD 214000
Singapore

A longstanding client is looking to grow their ship finance and offshore non-contentious practice in their Singapore office. We have successfully supported this practice previously and will be happy to assist you throughout the interview process.

 

You will be joining an international law firm with deep roots in the shipping industry. The hiring partner is looking for associates who have a genuine interest in the shipping and offshore industry and a desire to be client facing. From a practitioner’s angle, our client appreciates commercial minded, independent, lateral thinkers who never stop learning and ask the right questions.

 

You will be doing an even mix of ship finance and offshore non-contentious work. On the ship finance side, you will be advising leading shipowners and occasionally banks. On the offshore non-contentious side, you will be advising construction companies, funds, offshore support companies, drilling companies and FPSO providers. You will be doing project financing, chartering, sale and purchase agreements and the occasional restructuring/ insolvency work.

 

The key highlights of this role include:

  • Variety of work. This is an opportunity to broaden your specialisation and get a deeper commercial understanding of the shipping and offshore sector.  
  • Collegiate work environment. The team is large but work collaboratively.
  • Work life balance. The hiring partner is keen for his associates to have a life outside of the office.

 

Common law qualified lawyers of between 3 to 4 PQE with shipping or offshore experience will be considered. Due to the nature of the work, England & Wales qualified lawyers will be preferred.

 

If the above position catches your interest, do get in touch for more information. 

Aviation Finance Lawyer
SGD 140000 to 160000
Singapore

We are supporting a leading transport law firm with the hire of a mid-level Aviation Finance Associate into their Singapore office.

 

The partner you will be working with has a good reputation in the market and has cultivated a collaborative working attitude amongst his team.

 

Your primary scope of work will be aviation finance. You will mainly be advising lessors but will occasionally do work for banks and airlines.

 

The key draws of this opportunity include:

  • Opportunity to business develop. The practice has always adopted a client facing approach and is supportive of business development efforts.
  • Transparent bonus structure. Our client awards bonuses for hours exceeding their billable hours target. That target is slightly below the market average.
  • Resistance to market downturns. The asset finance practice has diversified their focus enough to secure work despite economic downturns.

 

England & Wales qualified lawyers will be at an advantage; however, common law qualified lawyers will be considered. You will also have had between 3 to 4 years of aviation finance experience.

 

If the above position has caught your interest, do get in touch for a discreet conversation.

Aviation Finance Lawyer
£80000 - £150000
Singapore

A top-billing partner from a longstanding client has moved to Singapore and is looking to hire two aviation finance lawyers to grow their aviation finance practice. We’ve worked closely with our client’s hiring partners through the years and will be able to assist you throughout the application process.

 

You will primarily be working on the lenders side, representing major banks and lessors. The partner you will be working with is not only well known in the market but has also created a culture of training and developing junior associates.

 

After some discussion with the hiring partner, we consider the following to be the main draws of this opportunity:

 

  • Business Development. This will be a rare opportunity for junior associates to business develop from the start. For more ambitious senior lawyers, you can expect our client to support your business development plans.

 

  • Work exposure. In addition to doing big-ticket aviation finance work, you will have the chance to broaden your experience by assisting the partners in ship finance or offshore finance.

 

  • Positive work environment. The hiring partner is great to work with and has a record of providing mentorship and leadership for the team below him. 

 

Our client is looking for lawyers of between NQ to 6 PQE who have a background in aviation finance, although banking finance candidates will also be considered. England and Wales qualified lawyers will be at an advantage but our client will happily receive applications from Common Law qualified candidates.
