Transactional Paralegal Job Description

A transactional paralegal is someone who works on corporate and transactional matters under the supervision of licensed attorneys in a law-related setting or law office. Transactional paralegals do not practice law, as they are not licensed attorneys, but they help in many aspects of legal transactions, including preparing initial drafts of contracts and closing binders. Transactional paralegals generally work in office buildings and work on matters that involve negotiation of deals between parties (such as mergers between companies, financing agreements, and sales of divisions of companies). This distinguishes transactional paralegals from litigation paralegals, who work on adversarial matters that involve going to court.
