Litigation & Regulatory Investigations Counsel - Vice President
Overview of Citi
Citi, the world leading global bank, has approximately 200 million customer accounts and a presence in more than 160 countries and jurisdictions worldwide. Citi provides consumers, corporations, governments and institutions with a broad range of financial products and services, including consumer banking and credit, corporate and investment banking, securities brokerage, transaction services, and wealth management. Citi enables clients to achieve their strategic financial objectives by providing them with cutting-edge ideas, best-in-class products and solutions, and unparalleled access to capital and liquidity.
Reporting to the EMEA Head of Litigation & Regulatory Investigations and based at Citi’s offices in Belfast, the successful candidate will be a member of a busy and highly effective team of six lawyers (plus legal and administrative support staff) who sit within the EMEA General Counsel`s Office and who provide support and legal advice to Citi's multiple businesses and executive management throughout the Europe, Middle East & Africa (“EMEA”) region.
That support and advice relates to a an extremely broad range of contentious issues, disputes and internal investigations. The matters advised upon are of varying significance and complexity and include civil/commercial litigation as well as contentious financial regulatory issues and ethics / conduct investigations. The workload of the team is extremely varied and, at any given moment, can relate to any business area or product and/or to any one or more of the 55 countries in which Citi does business in the EMEA region.
The work involved and related responsibilities will typically include the following:
Leading internal investigations and inquiries into regulatory and/or ethical/conduct issues in connection with EMEA businesses. Producing verbal and/or written reports in relation to such investigations for Legal Seniors, Citi's Ethics Office and/or Regulators, as appropriate.
Working with Citi’s Security and Investigative Services (“CSIS”) team in relation to fraud-related and other investigations.
Working with local Citi internal product and country lawyers throughout the region.
Advising on disputes involving investment and commercial banking transactions, equities and fixed income sales and trading; transaction services (cash management, trade finance and securities & funds services); consumer banking; and/or private banking / wealth management.
Managing the conduct of regulatory and legal proceedings, criminal and civil, to include the selection and instruction of local external counsel and the ongoing management of related legal costs.
Advising upon the nature and effect of Court Orders received in connection with customers and clients (e.g. freezing orders; third party debt orders; insolvency-related court procedure etc).
Providing US/APac/LatAm Citi Legal colleagues with local assistance throughout EMEA in connection with cross-border litigation and/or with requests for information and documents received from regulatory authorities in other regions.
Working with Citi’s Corporate Affairs team in relation to any related media coverage.
Advising on recoveries issues, including those arising out of domestic and cross-border insolvencies.
Assisting in maintaining a litigation reporting database and in the preparation of bespoke, periodic internal reports for submission to senior executive management; various internal governance bodies; and the boards of directors of Citigroup, Inc. and a number of its subsidiaries.
This challenging role will broaden and deepen the employee`s experience and knowledge of banking and financial services matters generally and of legal and regulatory systems across a range of EMEA jurisdictions as well as, potentially, those of the United States and the other regions in which Citi operates globally. The successful candidate will deal on a day-to-day basis with colleagues in Citi’s other control functions (in particular, Compliance, Internal Audit and Risk) and will likely gain exposure to senior members of Citi’s management team, both regionally and globally. The workload will (as noted above) be varied (both in terms of subject matter and geography) and will often entail the handling of highly sensitive internal and/or regulatory investigations as well as of commercial disputes and regulatory issues, which are significant for the institution both economically and in terms of reputation.
