Legal Advisor (M/F)

Internship 6 to 12 months


We are looking for a candidate with excellent analytical skills, who is able to work independently but also as part of a team, and with a keen sense of initiative. The job offers varied work in a friendly and international atmosphere and an excellent work-life balance.

Your mission

Contribute your legal expertise within the legal department in the drafting and negotiating of complex contracts relating to investment funds, particularly distribution agreements. 

Main duties:

As a true “Business Partner”, you will be mainly tasked with supporting sales teams and business developers in negotiating and concluding the contracts of the business line.

You will analyse the risks, draft and negotiate the Group’s distribution agreements, in direct relation with the sales teams. You will also be involved in other more specific legal projects.

In this context, your main tasks will be to:

  • Support and advice sales teams in contractual matters
  • Define the adapted contractual schemes
  • Identify and present the risks of the contract
  • Negotiate the terms of the contract
  • Draft, in an effective, clear and comprehensive manner, in English and/or French, the contract while ensuring the legal security of the intended business relationship. You must, therefore, be familiar with issues related to the fund distribution field (including AML/KYC, FATCA, Dodd–Frank, OFAC regulations, GDPR, etc.)

Experience of a multi-cultural global organisation implying multiple geographies and stakeholders is an important factor for success in the position.
