Senior Legal Counsel-Project Finance and Infrastructure

Business and Financial Operations


Full Time


New York, New York, United States

Job description

Here at HSBC we use our unique expertise, capabilities, breadth and perspectives to open up new kinds of opportunity for our more than 40 million customers. We’re bringing together the people, ideas and capital that nurture progress and growth, helping to create a better world – for our customers, our people, our investors, our communities and the planet we all share.

As a Senior Legal Counsel for Global Banking, you will support various investment banking businesses in New York. Business coverage will focus primarily on project finance and infrastructure development (such as the financing of equity interests in wind and solar projects), but could easily include Debt Capital Markets (including private placements and liability management), Equity Capital Markets and M&A Advisory. You will be responsible for managing legal risks by providing timely, clear and practical legal and strategic advice to the most critical businesses for HSBC.

Here’s what you can expect day-to-day

As our Senior Legal Counsel, you will advise on the legal risk of existing and new business and product approval activities. This will likely include drafting, reviewing and negotiating relevant contracts and related transaction documentation (credit agreements, confidentiality agreements, engagement letters and commitment letters). You will identify new legal, regulatory and market developments that can affect business activities, and you’ll educate our banking teams on how these developments may affect their business. This will include frequent and ongoing interaction with our front office and other critical teams (such as regulatory, compliance, operations, treasury and tax).

For this role, HSBC targets a fixed pay range between $191,700 and $287,600.

The final fixed pay offer will depend on the candidate and a number of variables, including but not limited to, role responsibilities, skill set, depth of experience and education, licensing/certification requirements, internal relativity, and specific work location.

At HSBC, our overall goal is to provide a competitive Total Reward Package, with an appropriate mix of fixed pay, and variable pay, as part of an employee’s overall total compensation and benefits. Variable pay generally takes the form of discretionary, annual awards (sometimes referred to as a “bonus”). Additionally, HSBC offers a wide range of competitive and flexible benefits designed to help you improve your health and well-being, finances, and lifestyle.
