General Counsel – San Francisco Bay Area (East Bay)


Our client, an international SaaS and On-Prem based software company has exclusively retained Solutus Legal Search to assist the Company in its search for a General Counsel. This is an exciting opportunity to work closely with the company’s new executives and manage a variety of legal matters (domestic and international) for the organization. The General Counsel will manage a small legal team and will report directly to the CEO. Local candidates only at this time (SF Bay Area)

The ideal candidate will have at least 12-15+ years of law firm and in house experience and will possess a strong commercial and general corporate background. Current or prior experience at a SaaS, cloud computing or enterprise software company is a must. This attorney will also have experience advising sophisticated sales organizations in all aspects of their deals as well as advising internal and external clients on a variety of legal areas including privacy, cloud software, M&A and general corporate matters. The General Counsel will employ a “roll up your sleeves” approach with a deep understanding of the business issues and how to move business forward.

Strong communication skills, excellent judgment and flexibility are a must. Those with big egos need not apply. Our client’s culture is energetic, fresh and team oriented. The people are fun and genuinely nice individuals. It also moves at a constant pace and change is constant. The ideal General Counsel will have the ability to adapt and work with a diverse group of colleagues at all levels.

This is a remarkable opportunity (in the East Bay!) to work with seasoned executives in a high impact role. The opportunity for a fulfilling experience is very high.

Compensation and benefits are very competitive.

Solutus Legal Search has been retained on an exclusive basis for this search partnership. Interested candidates may contact us at search@solutuslegal.com. Candidates applying directly to the company will be redirected to Solutus for consideration.
