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.
