Associate Attorney – Securities
Bernstein Shur seeks an experienced securities associate with asset management industry experience to join its expanding Securities and Financial Services Practice Group in Portland, Maine. The ideal candidate will have 3-5 years’ of dedicated experience working for asset management industry clients, and working knowledge of relevant federal securities laws specific to the asset management industry, including the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, the Investment Company Act of 1940, as well as the Securities Act of 1933 and Exchange Act of 1934. The associate will play an immediate and direct role in regulatory, compliance, and transactional client work for a national practice serving SEC-registered investment advisory firms, open-end investment companies (mutual funds), registered closed-end investment companies, ETFs, common and collective investment trusts, other public and private on-shore and off-shore investment vehicles, and fund industry service providers. In addition, the associate will assist in defense of SEC examinations and enforcement defense matters, as well as independent investigations for asset management and financial services industry clients. The client base includes many fund and corporate boards, institutional trustees, and other fiduciaries, so knowledge of corporate governance issues specific to these parties is important. Collaterally, the associate will also support contract work, outsourcing deals, M&A work, and dispute resolution efforts within the context of the asset management and financial services client base. Prior experience in these collateral areas is less important, but beneficial.
