We have a unique opportunity to join the business development research team of a leading magic circle law firm, bridging an analytical, insight and data driven role with strategic client and BD planning. The key focus of the team is to provide company and client intelligence alongside competitor and market insight to help support strategic business decisions.

This role will predominantly have a lean towards the firm’s corporate and transactional practice, researching M&A market activity alongside private equity and capital markets, identifying relevant information, trends and deals that will enable the firm to be more targeted in their approach of winning new work, and equally act as a trusted adviser to their clients. The role will suit an individual with an analytical and curious mind set, but also capable of disseminating commercial insight from a wide range of data and sources; equally able to present this in a strategic and insightful way to the firm’s senior leadership and partners.

Successful candidates will have incredibly strong research and analytical skills, alongside a confident and professional approach to developing relationships with stakeholders, both in person and virtually. Previous experience of using research databases such as Mergermarket, Zephyr and DebtWire, among others, would be highly advantageous.
