GTLogo Black

Our fast-growing and dynamic Miami Corporate Practice is seeking a junior to mid-level associate to join our fund formation and investment management team.

Practice Summary

The fund formation and investment management team focuses on meeting the needs of private equity, venture capital, and hedge fund managers, first and foremost, by assisting our sponsor clients in forming and structuring (i) their respective GP and management company entities, and (ii) the investment funds and other alternative investment vehicles that they manage, or, on the investor side, by representing them in side letter negotiations and advising on various investment opportunities with third party managers. Clients also ask us to manage their fundraising processes, help them comply with ongoing regulatory requirements, and advise them in connection with their day-to-day legal needs.

At GT we focus on the business objectives of our clients and believe that no other law firm offers corporate clients the combined benefits of local presence and global resources that we do. From raising capital to client counseling to implementing best practices, our cumulative experience is compelling and our commitment to service is our top priority.

Job Requirements

The ideal candidate would be a junior to mid-level associate and have a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 years of experience in a large law firm setting. Candidates should have some experience with fund formation and investment adviser work and a genuine interest in practicing as a private funds lawyer. In addition, candidates should be willing and able to take on responsibility, multi-task, and work in a fast-paced environment. Candidates should have a strong academic history and excellent written and verbal communication skills; they should also be highly detail-oriented. At least a basic understanding of entity types from a tax perspective is helpful, as is an understanding of the fundamental elements of the Federal securities laws (i.e., the ’33 Act, the ’34 Act, the Investment Company Act, and the Investment Advisers Act) as they relate to the business of private fund managers. Depending on the level of experience, candidates will be expected to understand the basics of fund economics and be able to coherently draft related language in fund agreements (or be motivated to learn to do so). Candidates must either be admitted to the Florida Bar or admitted to the Bar of another state and eligible for admission to the Florida Bar. This position can be filled in the Miami or Chicago office. Candidates should specify office location preference in the application.

For consideration, please submit your resume and official transcript(s).
