Our client, OYO, one of the fastest growing hospitality companies in the world, is seeking to hire a world-class General Counsel to serve as its top U.S. legal executive. This executive will report directly to the U.S. CEO. Solutus Legal Search has been exclusively retained on this highly coveted engagement.
The General Counsel will be instrumental in preparing the organization for IPO readiness for listing in the US. S/he will provide broad legal and business counsel to the CEO, the management team and the board of directors. S/he will establish the legal department in the U.S. and will work closely with executives to create a broad set of domestic legal policies as the company expands its business and prepares for explosive growth in the U.S. This will require not only the ability to think critically and strategically, but will also require the ability…and desire to hustle and perform the “blocking and tackling” legal work necessary to protect the company. Such work will include drafting and negotiation a variety of agreements and handing consumer disputes.
This attorney will participate in the administration and resolution of legal issues that arise from regulatory matters, existing commercial relationships and handling pre- litigation legal disputes and inquiries. S/he will have a thorough knowledge of inter-state regulatory issues and will be able to work closely with the business team to pre-emptively identify such issues for smooth operations of the Company. The successful candidate will maintain excellent relationships with business and work closely with the team based in India to help roll out initiatives in the US in line with the best practices followed for global programs and policies.
The ideal candidate will possess 20+ years of legal experience (including management experience), at a top law firm as well as a hypergrowth company. General Counsel and IPO experience are strongly preferred. This legal executive will serve as a hands-on business partner with the ability to think strategically and work diligently in a rapidly scaling global environment. Substantively, the General Counsel will have a proven background in a wide range of areas including general corporate, corporate governance, litigation, antitrust, real estate, commercial transactions, risk management, regulatory and government policy. Experience with a hypergrowth company, hospitality company, capital markets and/or large technology will be an added advantage.
The successful candidate must possess the following:
Excellent negotiation and communication skills;
Ability to partner with the business;
A solution oriented approach with a clear and concise communication style;
The ability to simplify complex matters and tailor their communication style to suit their audience; and
Gravitas/confidence/presence required to be a respected leader.
Ability to thrive in a high growth environment
Passion for innovation and building things
Simply put, this is one of a kind opportunity. With its visionary founder, superb management team with a keen eye for disruption and heavyweight investors (SoftBank, Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners to name a few), the sky is the limit for this company and its team.
