Our client, a late stage, high profile private technology company, has exclusively engaged Solutus Legal in its effort to add a world-class, business savvy legal executive to join its team. The Chief Legal Officer will report directly to the CEO and will serve as a key business partner in the organization.
The successful executive will provide broad legal counsel to the CEO, the management team and the board of directors – and will serve as a key advisor with respect to strategic transactions.

This attorney will thrive in the kind of dynamic, entrepreneurial environment that is led by innovative and passionate founders. This will require (1) a focus on advancing the business and being a problem solver as opposed to a path to “no”; (2) possessing the flexibility and willingness to take charge and get done what is needed in order to make the Company successful; (3) working collaboratively with colleagues to create an effective infrastructure and culture; and (4) the right temperament to succeed in all of the above.
The Desired General Counsel Profile Includes:
J.D. degree and 15+ years legal experience.
Prior General Counsel experience (required).
IPO experience (strongly preferred).
Proven background in general corporate, commercial, technology licensing, data security, data privacy, international and intellectual property/patent portfolio management.

Ability and desire to roll up one’s sleeves and do the work as well as handle the big picture strategic matters.
Down to earth and positive/can-do attitude.
Sense of humor.
Respectful of all members of the team.
