• EBRD’s Office of the General Counsel (OGC) is at the core of EBRD’s mandate to support the transition process to market economies and promote private and entrepreneurial initiative in its countries of operation, which include 38 economies ranging from Central and Eastern Europe, the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean to Central Asia.
  • In this in-house role you will have principal responsibility for a number of EBRD's equity transactions (i.e. private equity investments and participation in private equity funds) throughout EBRD’s countries of operations, advise on legal structuring of such transactions, select and manage the engagement of external law firms, draft and negotiate transaction documents and assist in the implementation thereof.
  • You will contribute to the knowledge management activities of OGC and help carry out the EBRD's policy mandate in the context of its equity operations, e.g. with a view to ensuring compliance with EBRD’s environmental standards and other policy requirements.
  • You have a law degree from a leading university; for candidates from civil law jurisdictions, a post graduate law degree (e.g. LLM) from a common law jurisdiction would be preferred and be admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction and preferably have professional experience in both civil and common law.
  • In addition to your primary interested in emerging markets work you will have an excellent command of the English language, including a demonstrated skill to draft and negotiate legal documents in English. Fluency in an additional language, in particular Russian, French, Turkish or Arabic, would be an asset.
