Solutus Legal has been engaged exclusively by our client, a successful global public company, to find a high quality commercial attorney. The ideal candidate will have 4 to 7 years of legal experience including experience reviewing, drafting, and negotiating commercial contracts and technology licenses. S/he must have a J.D. from an ABA accredited law school and be permitted to practice law in New York (registered in house counsel is acceptable). In house experience is preferred, but our client will consider candidates with relevant law firm experience. Local candidates only (New York City Metro Area).
This Counsel will be responsible for reviewing, drafting, and negotiating commercial contracts and license agreements including licenses for the company’s colocation and interconnection services, non-disclosure agreements, and vendor contracts. S/he will also review and improve standard form agreements and legal processes; assist with real estate transactions as needed, including the preparation and review of lease and related documents; and advise on relevant regulatory and compliance issues. Prior work experience on the “sell-side” of B2B commercial transactions and with data security and data privacy is desirable as is a working knowledge of technology transactions and licensing.
Our client’s culture is fast-paced, down-to-earth, collaborative, smart, and collegial. The successful candidate will align with the above characteristics and be willing to pitch in on a variety of projects as needed. This attorney must be self-motivated, able to work both independently and in teams, able to prioritize time-sensitive projects, and able to communicate clearly and effectively with internal and external teams and clients, including senior management.
This is an excellent opportunity to join an outstanding legal department, in a role with diverse responsibilities and a path for advancement.
