CDC Group plc (CDC) is seeking to hire a corporate lawyer to:
Advise on equity investments in businesses, joint ventures and infrastructure projects. The investments will principally be in India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan but the candidate may also work on transactions in Africa;
provide more general support on CDC India’s advocacy, corporate and compliance requirements and assist other business lines.
The role is within CDC’s Legal Team. Although the lawyer will be based in India and work closely with the management of CDC India and CDC’s investment teams, they will initially report to the General Counsel in London. Depending on how the role evolves and the needs of the business, it is anticipated that the lawyer will in time report to the Managing Counsel responsible for Direct Equity.
The role is an exciting opportunity for a mid-level lawyer to develop their skills by working on complex and bespoke transactions in diverse markets. They will be able to learn from an experienced team of senior lawyers drawn from private practice and from in-house roles at other financial institutions.
The Legal Team supports CDC in all legal aspects of its investment business and also provides corporate legal and regulatory advice to the CDC board. Within the Legal Team we have three groups, each focused on a CDC business line: Direct Equity, Intermediated Equity (i.e. funds) and Direct Debt. Lawyers from these groups frequently work together, particularly on deals which cross disciplines (such as an equity investment in a project-financed infrastructure project). The Legal Team also works closely with the relevant investment teams and with other functions such as the Environmental & Social (E&S) Team and the Business Integrity (BI) Team.
The Legal Counsel will report to the General Counsel on corporate matters, but will also be part of the Direct Equity group in the Legal Team.
The successful candidate will:
