  • Managing and interfacing with outside legal counsel, including managing a legal budget
  • Working with key internal stakeholders such as tax, treasury, privacy and security.

Who You Are:

  • 6-8 years’ experience with a combination of private practice and in-house experience preferred.  Experience working in a fast-paced, in-house legal environment is highly desirable; experience in a multi-national legal department a plus
  • Ideal candidate will have experience handling complex commercial transactions, cloud services agreements and large-scale outsourcing arrangements. Experience supporting real estate transactions and knowledge of the real estate space a plus.
  • Ability to work on a wide range of complex matters with minimal supervision
  • Track record of establishing strong working relationships with internal/external business clients and within the legal department/law firm
