Senior Level Tax Associate

Senior Level Tax Associate

Clifford Chance

London, United Kingdom

So as a Senior Associate, you would be working as part of a highly regarded and ambitious team, advising the world's leading financial institutions and corporates (as well as governments, governmental organisations, trade and industry associations and other representative bodies), and acting on the largest and most complex matters – almost all with a strong international element.

What you will be responsible for

As a Senior Associate you will work at the forefront of the market across a diverse range of tax work including:

  • Advising on international and domestic tax, covering a wide range of M&A and corporate structuring, bank and bond financing, structured debt, leasing, real estate investment and development, funds and other forms of non-bank investment;
  • Tax disputes, whether corporation tax, VAT, bank levy or other indirect taxes;
  • Bespoke tax advice, usually on highly complex points of law;
  • Tax policy advice to industry bodies and governments;
  • The nature of Clifford Chance means that the work has a strong international flavour; it is rare for the UK to be the only jurisdiction relevant to a matter;
  • You will advise many of the world's largest and most complex corporates and financial institutions, as well as central banks and governments. We also provide pro bono advice to some of the world's most influential NGOs.

What you will do

Key tasks and responsibilities:

  • You will be working with a broad range of clients and the Firm's other teams and practice areas, not only in London, but across the globe;
  • You will have exposure to work which often involves complex, high value matters that frequently headline in the financial and business press;
  • As you grow in experience, you will have extensive client contact both as part of your daily working routine but will also have the opportunity to develop new client contacts;
  • You will develop an unbeatable multi-disciplinary skill set as well as client facing skills whilst working with some of the best-known market leaders in their respective practice areas.

Your experience

You will have strong relevant corporate tax experience as a lawyer with an established tax practice, probably gained at a City firm, or at an overseas practice in a common law jurisdiction with a highly regarded profile. Whilst we advise on a wide range of taxes and transactions, we do not expect candidates' experience to cover this full range. However, we do expect candidates to have experience in corporate/M&A transactions.

In all cases you will have an outstanding academic history and proven first rate legal skills, combined with a strong reputation amongst existing clients for providing commercial solutions and excellent transactional and managements skills.

You should demonstrate strong communication and analytical skills along with a high level of commercial awareness.

You will need to demonstrate that you can thrive in a team with high professional standards and a flexible client-friendly commercial approach. You will have had strong exposure of collaborating with multi-jurisdictional and multi-disciplinary teams.

It is crucial that you can demonstrate an appetite for business development, client relationship management and thought leadership.
