G&S has been engaged by a prestigious, multi-national professional services firm to assist in its search for an accomplished transactional attorney. The firm’s commercial group is responsible for handling master service agreements, engagement letters, statements of work, non-disclosure agreements and other associated matters, as well as coordinating with business teams, internal subject matter experts and risk management. Contracts cut across various industry sectors (financial services, healthcare, government, utilities, technology, automotive, merchants, etc.) and are commercial and multilateral. On occasion, counsel also provide support for M&A transactions and supervise contract specialists in the contract review process. Note: This is not template driven work--no two agreements are the same, and they require tailoring to the specific situation. Thus our client seeks someone who is intellectually curious, agile, can think creatively and is excited by complexities.
Having placed 7 of the 12 attorneys on this team of highly accomplished lawyers in recent years, we can attest to the fact that it's a group of dynamic and energetic attorneys who love what they do and who have a commitment to providing the highest quality of in-house legal counsel support to their sophisticated business clients. Finally, the company is the best that we have seen with regard to the onboarding and training of their lawyers--the company "invests" in its legal talent in an effort to encourage longevity with the organization and to develop future leaders.
Requirements: Training as an associate in mergers & acquisitions, corporate finance or project finance transactions in an AmLaw top 100 firm setting; an understanding of commercial terms and experience drafting and negotiating complex agreements (ideally with heavily regulated entities); the ability to balance legal risks and business opportunities; executive presentation skills; and the ability to advise and influence senior business leaders and other stakeholders. The ideal applicant will possess large law firm training coupled with current in-house transactional experience.
