The Job

We are looking for an addition to our in-house legal team.  You will report to the General Counsel, and work closely with 2 senior legal counsels. 

The role offers a variety of work, from drafting policy provisions for insurance products (with focus on life insurance products, whilst also supporting general insurance products), to being involved in regulatory and other projects.  The role involves providing legal support as required across a diverse portfolio of internal clients, requiring a good commercial understanding of the requirements of the insurance industry in Hong Kong and Macau and excellent Chinese language skills.

The Person

To be successful in this role, you will be articulate, energetic and confident, with strong language skills and a great team player.  You will be willing to explore new and innovative approaches to insurance, yet have a solid understanding of the regulatory framework.  If you have previous in-house life insurance experience, we are most interested in receiving your application.  We also encourage private practitioners with at least 5-year PQE in insurance-related litigation to apply.
