Job Title
Senior Corporate Counsel – (Silicon Valley, CA)


Solutus Legal Search has been exclusively engaged by our client, a very large and thriving global publicly traded technology leader to assist in hiring a Senior Corporate Counsel to join our client’s Corporate, Cybersecurity and ESG legal team. This role will focus on ethics and compliance matters and will provide a fantastic opportunity to gain exposure to a wide range of business and compliance issues in a dynamic, fast-paced and collegial environment.

This attorney will possess 3-5+ years of legal experience. The ideal experience includes corporate compliance and ethics, developing and delivering trainings and knowledge of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, UK Bribery Act and other relevant anti-corruption laws. HOWEVER, our client will retool attorneys who desire to pursue a sophisticated ethics and compliance practice. So, those with a background in corporate, employment or government investigations will be strong candidates for this position. Law firm associates will be considered as well as those with current in-house experience.

The Senior Corporate Counsel will report to the Senior Associate General Counsel of ESG and Compliance (who is fantastic!) and will support the company’s ethics and compliance program. This role will be based at the client’s U.S. headquarters in San Jose, CA. In office presence is required, but there may be occasional flexibility on Fridays.

Cash compensation (base salary and target bonus) and stock grant are all above market and offer an extremely compelling overall compensation opportunity.

The attorney will work closely with and counsel, advise and deliver training to business teams on regulatory requirements, compliance, best practices, and industry standards. This role will review and update the company’s code of ethics, develop, and implement policies and procedures related to the code of ethics, conflicts of interest and compliance with corporate laws and regulations.  This attorney will conduct internal investigations.  Additionally, this attorney will assist with M&A anti-bribery and anti-corruption due diligence and partner with HR on compliance training related to harassment prevention. Some limited travel will be required.

Simply put, this is an outstanding opportunity. The role is interesting and offers great work and responsibilities. The person to whom this attorney will report will be a great manager and mentor. The company is large and thriving, so job stability is guaranteed. Finally, the compensation is one of the highest packages we’ve seen for this candidate profile and provides a compelling opportunity to advance in this area

Solutus has been selected as the exclusive representative on this desirable search.  Interested candidates, please submit resumes to search@solutuslegal.com for consideration. Resumes submitted directly to our client will be forwarded to Solutus for review and evaluation.
