Legal Analyst, Merchant Banking at Goldman Sachs

about 2 years ago
In terms of technical skills, knowing how to write in a legal manner, for example, drafting contracts or other legal documents, is a beneficial skill to have before entering the internship, but not necessary since during training, the Legal department will teach you all you need to know. Being a skilled and proficient writer in general is a necessary skill to have and demonstrate because the majority of the work Legal Analysts in Merchant Banking do involves writing in some form. Additionally, as a Legal Analyst for Merchant Banking, I speak with outside counsel and negotiate documents with associates at law firms or sometimes partners in major firms around the world. To speak with these individuals, it is important to have strong public speaking skills and confidence in your ability to defend your position.
