Regulation of financial services in Australia has been under an increased spotlight recently following the Banking Royal Commission, which has triggered a series of investigations by the different regulators and a long agenda of proposed reforms. As a result, this area of legal practice is dynamic and growing rapidly.

The Team

Our client's Financial Services Regulatory Group is ranked Tier 1 and is broadly acknowledged as Australia's leading adviser in this space. The group is also recognised as a leader in the growing fintech space.

This team - nationally and globally - has a deep knowledge and understanding of both the financial services industry and the increasingly complex regulations impacting their clients.

The Role
Our client is seeking a 2+ PQE Associate to join their non-contentious Financial Services Regulatory team. This team works across Sydney and Melbourne with demonstrable experience in the regulation of banks, non-bank financial services providers, providers of payment services and fintechs across the spectrum of wholesale and retail customers.

This role offers the opportunity to partner with prestigious clients (based in Australia and internationally) on some of the largest, most strategic and most complex matters in the market. You will develop deep expertise across a range of sectors, and will have opportunities to collaborate on cross-border matters with the global network.

The Requirements

To be successful in this role you will have:

  • An unrestricted Australian practicing certificate and at least 2 years of relevant legal experience (preferably within private practice). New Zealand qualified candidates are also eligible.
  • Proven technical expertise in advising on financial services regulation.
  • A proactive approach to your career development.
  • An ability to project manage and work to tight timeframes autonomously.
  • Ambition to gain exposure to Band 1, blue chip financial services regulatory work
