Profile

The Law Offices of Howard J Finkelstein is looking for a full-time Associate. The position would be for remote work only.

The Opportunity

Howard has practiced corporate law for 40+ years, first in a series of large firms and, for the last 12 years, as a solo practitioner.

Howard’s practice serves mostly startups and early-stage companies. He serves a number of clients as “Fractional General Counsel”, meaning he is responsible for handling everything that comes up. As an Associate, you will be involved in organizing and documenting new entities, corporations and llcs, documenting their initial relationships (shareholders, developers, employees, customers), setting up Terms of Service and Privacy Notices on websites and apps, reviewing NDAs, stock option agreements, subscription agreements, and a host of other documents. You will also deal with disciplines that are unique to the clients, some examples of which are HIPAA, blockchain technology and cryptocurrency, securities, privacy rules, consumer protection laws, a smattering of tax issues, IP issues and issues surrounding tech contracts.

It is a widely varied practice, with continual exposure to clients, whether in email, Slack, Zoom or in old-fashioned phone calls. 

What we are looking for

  • Law graduates Classes of 2018-2020. Bar admission or pending bar admission absolutely a prerequisite.
  • Personal characteristics -- intelligence, great drafting skills, good communication skills, the ability to learn quickly from experience and the guts to think outside the box. Most important - a passion for helping clients succeed.
  • Working knowledge of basic corporate law and some practical corporate experience are essential. Transactional experience (i.e., working on deals) a big plus.
  • Quick learner, voracious reader who can integrate knowledge with practice.
