Job description

Positions can range from entry level to senior management.

Candidates must have a juris doctor (JD) and excellent analytical, communication, diplomatic, research and writing skills.

  • Preparing, reviewing and negotiating company contracts, requests for proposals and other legal documents
  • Consulting with management, commercial advisors, tax experts, accountants and marketing staff
