TLT is a leading adviser to the financial services industry.  The firm acts for the largest UK banks and other leading firms. We are now looking to grow our Financial Services Regulatory team and we are keen to hear from Contract Lawyers, with over 6 years PQE to support our growing team.

We'd like you to have technical knowledge and experience in advising on wholesale pensions, funds, structured finance, securitisation, and private equity although retail and payment regulatory experience would be welcome too.

This role will be on a day rate contract and is likely to be 6 months in length we a view to extend. This will be a remote role working via an Umbrella company. We would be happy to see applications from candidates who are looking for part time opportunties.

The Role

You would support the Financial Services Regulatory team. The team already has a very strong reputation in the retail financial services sector and advises banks, building societies and specialist lenders on the complete range of regulatory matters affecting their business.  The team is ranked in Chambers and Partners for Consumer Finance.

  • You can expect to work for leading financial services firms on their strategically important matters.  You should expect to work on these sorts of areas:
  • Assisting clients to develop new products and services, providing end to end regulatory support, including structuring products, drafting agreements, working on comms, working through detailed systems builds;
  • Helping clients when things don’t go according to plan, including assessing regulatory issues and remediation strategies;
  • Assisting clients to implement new regulatory requirements, including BNPL, consumer credit and payments reform;

Ideally you will be a qualified lawyer, but we would consider compliance professionals who have had a very technical role.
