Your role
Are you an experienced transactional lawyer with a finance background? Do you enjoy working in a dynamic environment with the "occasional" challenging deadline spurring you rather than putting you off? Do you like entering uncharted water territory? We're looking for someone like this to:
– support the bank's busy and growing structured lending franchise
– lead and mentor colleagues ensuring the team provides high quality legal advice and bespoke solutions to accommodate the sophisticated needs of the bank's demanding wealth management clients in a timely and consistent manner
– give clear and concise legal advice to our businesses and functions


About us
Expert advice. Wealth management. Investment banking. Asset management. Retail banking in Switzerland. And all the support functions. That's what we do. And we do it for private and institutional clients as well as corporations around the world.

We are about 60,000 employees in all major financial centers, in almost 900 offices and more than 50 countries. Do you want to be one of us?

Your team
You'll be heading the newly created Credit & Transactions team in Legal Wealth Management Hong Kong. Together with the lending specialists in the bank we structure, negotiate and document a wide range of large and/or complex collateralized credit transactions tailored to the needs of the bank's sophisticated wealth management clients. We understand the issues that arise for the bank in creating and perfecting security interests in different types of collateral. So you can be working on a large single stock loan against listed equities the client has a strategic stake in one day and be concerned with lending against pre-IPO shares, art or commercial real estate the next and in a number of jurisdictions. And no two days are the same.

Your experience and skills
You have:
– at least 10 years PQE
– proven experience in a similar position, either in private practice or in house
– know-how around structured lending and taking security in the APAC region, in particular familiarity in the Hong Kong and China markets. Enforcement experience will be an advantage.
– what it takes to get a deal done
– no difficulty in interacting directly with a large number of internal and external stakeholders at various levels and in delivering complex and high level messages effectively to them

You are:
– a highly-motivated and flexible lawyer
– creative and business minded yet always striking a balance between the business needs and the risk appetite of the bank
– able to handle pressure and used to working to challenging deadlines
– an expert at building networks and connections
– fluent in English. Mandarin will be an advantage

What we offer
Together. That's how we do things. We offer people around the world a supportive, challenging and diverse working environment. We value your passion and commitment, and reward your performance.

Take the next step
Are you truly collaborative? Succeeding at UBS means respecting, understanding and trusting colleagues and clients. Challenging others and being challenged in return. Being passionate about what you do. Driving yourself forward, always wanting to do things the right way. Does that sound like you? Then you have the right stuff to join us. Apply now.
