Our Legal function is a group of experienced lawyers and documentation specialists who provide counsel exclusively to the bank to maximise revenue and manage legal risk.

Based in London, New York, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, our team includes more than 430 people and focuses on:

  • Advising on relevant laws and regulations
  • Evaluating the legal risks of new products and structures
  • Performing legal risk analysis of new products and structures
  • Developing and implementing risk mitigation policies
  • Managing disputes and litigation.

Legal analysts directly support our in-house counsel, experiencing at least four rotations to gain cross-divisional exposure. We also provide a continuing education programme that consists of networking opportunities, product training, and professional development classes.

To succeed here, team members need to be thoughtful, resourceful and enthusiastic, with strong technical, analytical, and communications skills. An interest in law and the legal profession is a given.
