DESCRIPTION

We are a premier boutique law firm seeking an associate attorney to provide support for complex transactional and compliance legal matters.

WHO WE ARE

Our firm was founded by two partner-level attorneys with a combined 25 years of experience working with Am Law 20 law firms in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Dallas. All of our four attorneys are graduates of top tier law schools. We represent clients in a broad range of sophisticated transactional and compliance matters, including with respect to securities, M&A, corporate governance, project finance, commercial transactions, fund formation, venture capital, private equity and other matters. Our clients include pre-revenue startups, mid-caps and Fortune 100 public companies. They are located throughout the United States and abroad.

We are an entrepreneurial law firm that is growing rapidly. Our attorneys work remotely from their homes, though we occasionally participate in in-person meetings in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and elsewhere.

REQUIREMENTS

We seek a lawyer with 4+ years of experience working in a sophisticated transactional practice with the following specific characteristics:

  • experience with securities, M&A, corporate governance, project finance, commercial transactions, fund formation, venture capital, employment, real estate and/or private equity legal matters;
  • experience with trusts and estates, wealth management and tax would be helpful;
  • meticulous attention to detail;
  • superb drafting skills and experience drafting purchase agreements, PPMs, registration statements, operating agreements, charters, bylaws, committee charters, subscription agreements, NDAs, PIIA agreements, employment agreements, IRAs, ROFRs, merger agreements, commercial contracts and/or resolutions;
  • a commitment to producing work product of the highest quality, and doing so efficiently;
  • a JD from a top-tier law school with a strong GPA;
  • status as an attorney in good standing in the State of Texas (or your state of residence if you reside elsewhere);
  • a commitment to working ethically and always in the best interests of clients;
  • a desire to work in a flexible and collegial work environment where lawyers take their work, but not themselves, seriously;
  • a willingness to work in a demanding setting where criticism and collaboration are expected, as is ongoing effort to improve; and
  • interest in working for pedagogical attorneys with a commitment to associate development.

BENEFITS

This is a full-time, remote position.

In more detail:

  • We are output oriented, meaning we don't care when or where you work, as long as you deliver your work product in accordance with client expectations and the highest professional standards. Unlike most law firms, our work environment is fun and flexible. We encourage our attorneys to prioritize their lives outside of work and are more than happy to accommodate personal commitments.
  • We will train you better than most Am Law firms. Our partners have given numerous training seminars and published dozens of articles in our areas of practice, and we will routinely share our training materials and other know-how and provide constructive feedback on your work product.
  • We are committed to providing associate attorneys with a diverse set of opportunities to learn and grow their own successful practices. As a small firm, we have flexibility to adapt our fee structure to the specific needs of prospective clients, which better enables younger lawyers to develop their own practices.
  • We offer health care and dental insurance coverage, payment of professional fees, paid vacation and more.

NEXT STEPS

If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please submit a cover letter, resume and law school transcript. 

Looking forward to hearing from you!
