Job Title
Senior Director, Corporate Securities


Our client, a late-stage, rapidly growing software company with marquee investors, has exclusively retained Solutus Legal Search to assist the Legal Department with its search for a Senior Director level corporate attorney.

Reporting directly to the Chief Legal Officer, this attorney will lead the corporate function – and will play a key role in IPO readiness and shepherding the company through its IPO. S/he will grow the function over time and will manage all areas related to compliance with securities laws as well as capital market transactions, and corporate governance initiatives. This attorney will also closely partner with the corporate development function to execute acquisitions and investments in support of the company’s growth strategy. S/he will interface with the Board and work collaboratively with Company executives. This is an incredible leadership opportunity with a company experiencing tremendous success.

The ideal candidate will possess at least 11+ years of corporate securities, governance and IPO experience including IPO readiness (due diligence, working with underwriters/bankers etc.). Top corporate law firm experience servicing emerging growth and/or publicly traded technology companies is required. This attorney will also possess experience presenting to the Board of Directors and advising the C-Suite including the CFO. A background in the software industry is strongly preferred, but our client will consider other technology industries for the right candidate. Confidence, business acumen and gravitas are required. This position is located in the San Francisco Bay Area and will provide work location flexibility.

Culture fit with our client and the legal department is essential. This lawyer must have the proven ability think like a businessperson and work closely with internal partners and external customers. The successful candidate must possess excellent strategic, organizational and presentation skills, business acumen and confidence to successfully negotiate deals and work with the legal team and other cross-functional teams.

This is a phenomenal opportunity to join a high-quality company in an important role.  Our client offers an attractive compensation package for the qualified candidate.
