Deminor Recovery Services (“Deminor”) (https://drs.deminor.com) is an independent advisory firm specialized in funding litigation and monetizing claims for investors and corporates. The business is organized in three practice areas: investment recovery, anti-trust actions and commercial litigation.

As a European leader in the field of legal finance, Deminor has an unmatched geographical reach, experience, know-how, track record, institutional network and financial capacity. All of which are essential in bringing recovery actions to a success.  Over 30,000 private and 800 institutional clients - primarily based in Europe, the U.S. and Asia - have used Deminor’s services in connection with past or pending high profile investment recovery cases.

Deminor has the ambition of becoming a leading player in legal finance on a global scale. Its operational headquarters are located in Brussels. Other offices include New York, Hong Kong, Milan and Luxembourg. Deminor also has a representative office in Montevideo for Latin America. The multidisciplinary team is composed of young professionals of various nationalities and expertise.

In order to strengthen its team in Brussels, Deminor is currently looking for a Legal Counsel & Compliance Manager (m/f).

As a Legal Counsel you will help negotiate, review and draft, across the different business lines, contracts with clients (coming from all parts of the world and including pension funds, asset managers, private wealth managers, private investors, banks and insurance companies, family trusts, public entities, sovereign wealth funds and not-for-profit entities) and suppliers, including keeping up to date template contracts.

You will be in charge of all legal standing aspects of Deminor’s institutional clients: you will do research on and provide legal advice with regard to foreign investment structures (including legal standing, corporate decision-making powers, powers of representation …) and you will actively communicate with the client in order to collect all necessary documents in this context.  

Furthermore, you will act as an in-house legal counsel for all legal matters involving Deminor as a company (at group level) and you will be in charge of Deminor’s internal compliance (checking compliance with the Group code of conduct and responding to any compliance requests made by clients or suppliers).

Finally, in the field of Deminor’s commercial litigation funding practice, you will be responsible for all compliance matters towards external investors and clients in funding projects (monitor compliance of investments in specific cases with applicable legislation including KYC and AML and draw the company’s attention to possible risks).

You will be based in Brussels but travelling abroad whenever needed.

You are a Master in Law with a focus on corporate and contract law. You have conducted part of your studies abroad, ideally in an Anglo-Saxon environment. An LLM degree and experience with investment funds and structures will be considered as a plus.

You have minimum 5 years of relevant ‘on-the-job' experience in the above-mentioned areas, gained as a lawyer (preferably in corporate law) or at the legal department of a financial institution.

Preferably, you have had exposure to the US and Anglo-Saxon markets.

You have excellent command of English. Knowledge of an additional language will be considered as a plus.

You are a flexible team player and you value diversity.

You are a structured, rigorous and well-organized person.

You have good communication skills and you are not afraid of directly dealing and actively taking part in discussions and negotiations with experienced and sophisticated persons in major global asset management firms, law firms, and major corporations.

You work with the highest standards of quality, business ethics and commitment.

You have strong analytical and drafting skills.

You like to set to yourself high targets and are committed to achieve them. You are results oriented and you are able to work under time pressure.

At Deminor, you will be involved in a variety of assignments and cases, working for institutional, corporate or private clients, concerning companies across the globe.

You will be part of an international team of highly motivated professionals with both a legal and financial academic background.

At Deminor “you own the process”: Deminor has an entrepreneurial culture, encouraging its team members to work autonomously, to take up responsibilities and to grow the business as they gain experience within the firm.

Deminor offers a competitive salary in accordance with education, experience and skills. Based on a formal yearly evaluation process, Deminor also offers attractive annual gratification based on performance and/or results.
