Corporate Attorney (SF/London/Remote) – High-End Law Firm Boutique Specializing in Venture Capital Financings, Corporate and M&A

Solutus Legal has been exclusively retained by our client, a high-end boutique law firm, to assist in hiring an attorney to work on corporate transactions. Founded in 2000, our client has a thriving corporate practice and established client base that includes top tier international funds, cachet companies and other clientele. Offices are located in San Francisco and London. Many team members work remotely and the firm is open to flexible schedules.

The successful candidate will have between two – four years of experience handling venture capital financings and M&A transactions in the corporate department of a top law firm. Experience with start-up work, licensing and commercial contracts is helpful, but not a requirement. California or New York Bar admission is required.

This is a phenomenal opportunity for a skilled attorney who wants to continue to practice at a high level, receive mentorship and training and to work with world-class U.S. and international clients while achieving flexibility in terms of schedule and location. The firm’s alternative structure has cultivated a great culture, premier clients, phenomenal work, consistency of schedule and low attrition. The team members are all top-notch attorneys who are also open and collaborative and the work environment is supportive.

Substantive excellence, confidence and timely ease in the key practice areas are essential.  Excellent drafting skills, precise attention to detail and strong and very clear written and oral communication skills are also a must.  Keeping in close touch with the team and coordinating smoothly and with clarity over the telephone, email and IM/Skype; working successfully and independently from home; being a self-starter, having a very strong and independent ability to follow up and follow through on matters is key. Being an enthusiastic, dedicated and professional team player with excellent organization and project management skills is also essential.

This position requires a dedicated home office and the ability to effectively and efficiently work and communicate across U.S. and European time zones (noting that the firm has physical locations in San Francisco and London). Team members are independent contractors. This position offers a competitive hourly rate and the opportunity for ongoing advancement in pay and professional development. The firm supplies professional liability insurance, IT and document processing support as well as access to PLC and PLI.

Solutus Legal Search has been engaged on an exclusive basis for this coveted partnership. Interested candidates who meet the specifications above must submit resumes to search@solutuslegal.com.

Only registered members can apply for jobs.
