Our client, a hospitality unicorn and one of the fastest growing late-stage startup companies in the world, has exclusively retained Solutus Legal to assist the company in its search for a top attorney. The ideal candidate will possess at 6-8 years of M&A and other relevant corporate, commercial and strategic transactions experience. Top law firm experience servicing emerging growth technology companies is required and in-house experience is a plus.
Duties include strategizing, leading and executing M&A, commercial and strategic transactions and working closely with the company’s executive, corporate development, legal and other cross-functional teams. The successful candidate will demonstrate strong acumen in leading acquisitions and other corporate transactions, including advising on deal structure and issues, conducting and managing due diligence, drafting and negotiating deal documentation, coordinating deal closings, and managing post-closing requirements and integration.
Personality fit with our client and the legal department is paramount. This lawyer must possess superior communication and negotiation skills and will be a hard worker, responsive, proactive, team player, critical thinker, intellectually curious as well as a creative problem solver. This attorney must be able to thrive in a high-performance culture and high growth environment, prioritize and manage several projects at once and have passion for innovation.
Simply put, this is a one of a kind opportunity. With its visionary founder, superb management team with a keen eye for disruption and heavyweight investors (SoftBank, Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners to name a few), the sky is the limit for this company and its team.
