Job Title
Counsel/Senior Counsel - Bay Area


Solutus Legal Search is pleased to partner with our client, a successful private real estate investment firm to assist the company in adding an outstanding Counsel/Senior Counsel with 2-5 years of legal experience (law firm and/or in-house). This position offers significant potential, fast-paced career development, and numerous opportunities for personal achievement. Prior real estate experience is a plus but not required, making this a great opportunity for candidates looking to break into the industry.  The successful candidate will be a self-starter and problem-solver who enjoys working in a dynamic, fast-paced, and collaborative environment.  This attorney will be required to work in the office four days a week (with some flexibility).  Office headquarters are in San Francisco with inspiring views of the San Francisco Bay, Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.

This role will report to the General Counsel and will support the firm and its affiliated property management company in a wide range of real estate and securities matters, strategic projects, vendor and contractor transactions, regulatory compliance initiatives, and operational matters throughout their coast-to-coast portfolio of properties. Responsibilities include creating and deploying form documents, real estate and commercial contracting, and providing guidance to operating team members on landlord-tenant, litigation, and risk management matters.  The attorney in this role will work closely with internal and external stakeholders and offers fantastic exposure to a broad range of responsibilities.

Our client’s culture is very attractive.  The vibe is one of fun, friendly and social. Professionals work closely with one another and integrate well as a team. This is a rare opportunity to join a small, dynamic, and collegial company with the opportunity to quickly make an impact and gain responsibility.  Targeted base compensation for the qualified candidate is $185,000 - $215,000 plus guaranteed and discretionary bonuses.  Individual total compensation will vary and depend on the successful candidate’s level of seniority and number of years of directly relevant experience.

Solutus Legal Search has been exclusively engaged on this search. Interested candidates should submit resumes to search@solutuslegal.com for consideration. Resumes submitted directly to our client will be forwarded to Solutus for evaluation with the rest of the candidate pool.
