Legal Counsel - Corporate Loans, Treasury & Trade

Dover, FL 33527
The SVP level Legal Counsel position is a member of the Citi Legal, Australia & NZ team, located in Sydney, primarily supporting the Corporate Bank, Commercial Bank, and Treasury & Trade Solutions businesses of Citis Institutional Clients Group. These businesses cover a broad range of corporate finance transactions and products, including structured finance, business banking for mid-large cap corporates, commercial real estate financing, payments platforms, commercial corporate cards and securitisation. In conjunction with the other BCMA Legal team members and the APAC regional Citi Legal BCMA team, the position supports the breadth of these business areas, along with the other functional teams that also support those businesses and the Citi Australia & NZ businesses.

These areas include legal projects involving such things as legislative and regulatory change affecting the broader business, including foreign legislative change affecting the local business and local legislative change affecting Citi businesses outside of Australia.
