THE SKILL SET

  •  J.D. degree and membership in at least one state bar
  • 2-4 years of combined legal experience at a global law firm and/or in-house legal department at a technology company
  • Extensive commercial experience, including drafting and negotiating services agreements, licenses and strategic transactions
  • A confident, effective, and positive negotiator who can lead the process, focus on important issues, and efficiently bring deals to a favorable close
  • Intellectual flexibility and business-oriented attitude
  • Creative and practical legal counselor who can communicate information accurately and completely, while being concise and digestible for non-lawyers
  • Ability to organize, prioritize and manage deadlines in a fast-paced and demanding work environment
  • Thoughtful and persuasive interpersonal skills and ability to build and maintain strong working relationships
  • Collaborative team player combined with ability to work independently and exercise sound judgment
  • Very important to have a sense of humor and enjoy practicing law
