Simmons & Simmons is a market leader in structured finance and
derivative products with excellent coverage of both the buy- and the
sell-side of the market. We advise many of the most active investment
banks as well as asset managers and corporates and we are the
derivatives adviser of choice to the European hedge fund community.
We advise on the full range of derivatives and structured products,
including structured credit products (such as credit derivatives,
CLNs, repackagings, CDOs/CLOs and total return swaps); structured
equity products (such as equity derivatives and CFDs, equity- and
fund-linked notes, certificates and warrants); interest rate, FX and
inflation products; ESG linked transactions (including sustainability
linked derivatives) commodity linked transactions; ETP platforms;
Islamic derivatives (such as murabaha-, wa'ad- and salam-based
products and advising on the ISDA/IIFM Tahawwut Master Agreement);
prime brokerage and intermediation arrangements; credit risk
mitigation (such as credit support, security and other
collateralisation arrangements); repos and securities lending. We also
advise on products linked to new and emerging asset classes, including
crypto-linked products where we work closely with the firm's
international FinTech team.
Our transactional teams work very closely with our regulatory lawyers
to stay at the forefront of the changing regulatory landscape. By way
of example, we have led industry groups on Libor transition and
coordinated industry responses to consultations on recent regulatory
developments in the structured products space.

Derivatives team to be based in either our London or Bristol offices.

cross-border matters with our global network throughout Europe, ME and APAC.
Applicants will ideally be between 2+ PQE with derivatives and
structured products experience
