Legal Counsel - Global PE Fund (Beijing / New York)

Global Private Equity Fund of Fund with offices in New York, San Francisco, London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Beijing is looking for a general counsel for their asia pacific business.

Our client is managing in excess of USD 70bn of assets across PE, Hedge Funds and other alternative fund of funds / multi asset investments. Their investment mandate is global and are focussed on co-investments / direct investments and fund of funds. Due to the increased growth of their AUM, they are looking to hire a dedicated asia pacific legal counsel who will report in to their managing partner based in China. This peson will be responsible for all fund launches, upstream and down stream investment and fund related activities. Although there will be a separate compliance team, the hiring and build out of that team will be also one of the legal counsel's core responsibilities. Furthermore, it is expected that the right candidate should be able to read and write Mandarin - there is no flexibility on this given most of the documentation will be in chinese. This probably makes the position harder to fill but there are a lot of native chinese candidates or candidates based in US that are fluent in Chinese that are keen to relocate to China for personal reasons and our client is hoping to attract such candidates.

The role can potentially be based out of New York for exceptional candidates that are able to speak read and write chinese and have NY Bar who also do not have problems travelling frequently to Beijing.

Should this role peak your interest please feel free to write to myself and send your CV / Bio to ayyaz@fundspartnership.com
