Do you want to work closely with the business in providing banking and finance services in an international setting to some of the largest companies in Denmark? On behalf of our client, we are looking for a Danish law qualified associate to work within the group’s Danish branch office in Copenhagen.

Role Overview & Responsibilities
Reporting to the Danish Head of Legal, you will be part of a legal team consisting of the Head of Legal Denmark and the Legal Counsel. You will sit with the Danish Corporate & Institutions Banking (CIB) business and service their day-to-day transactional and regulatory legal requirements and queries. You will also be required to be proactively engaged in legal and regulatory projects and issues that affect both Denmark and the Nordic Region as a whole.
You will be responsible for monitoring the Danish legal market and for maintaining awareness of Danish legal developments, policies and guidelines to help ensure that any legal services and advice provided remain within enforceable legal frameworks.
You hold a Danish Master of Laws (cand.jur. or cand.merc.jur.) combined with 2-3 years of relevant experience from either a law firm, a bank or a financial institution.
You demonstrate solid contract law experience with knowledge and experience in banking and financing law. Knowledge of global markets and MiFID regulations is an advantage. The ability to work independently as well as in a team with a strong sense of teamwork is essential for success. As a person you are ambitious, proactive and a doer.

You are robust yet approachable in nature, with the ability to act calmly and professionally in a demanding and fast-moving business environment. Independent, rigorous and commercially minded as well as comfortable and confident advising the business are other competencies that you possess.
