Profile

Experience the prestige and challenge of Fortune 500 companies including dot coms, while enjoying the sunny lifestyle of the Southwest at this very busy, larger firm. Well-reputed in intellectual property, civil and securities litigation and corporate transactional practices, it is always striving towards excellence and professionalism in its associates, and actively encourages new associates to delve into responsible roles as soon as possible. Ready to meet the challenge? The associates here are some of the happiest associates in Phoenix and truly seem to enjoy the work that they do. We do not need to tell you that as a very successful Arizona firm the people here do appear to work very hard and we hate to say it but we will: Many are working New York type hours. The firm also has been criticized in many respects for its lack of diversity; however, we do not believe that this is a serious problem because the firm's recent hires have all been very diverse in our opinion. The firm also receives very high scores for the treatment of associates by partners and there does appear to be a very good relationship here between associates and partners with associates feeling they are part of the mix to a great degree and respected by partners. Most associates at this firm would much rather stay with the firm than switch firms. In our book this is a good sign. Paralegal The candidate will work closely with attorneys, other paralegals, and clients in a team environment to assist in rendering exceptional client service. Will assist attorneys with full spectrum of company maintenance and transactional needs. Involves frequent client contact. Will be drafting documents for formation of corporate and non-corporate entities in Washington and Delaware, board and stockholder actions, maintenance of entity records, including stock records, option plan administration, and state and federal securities compliance. Manage due diligence, management of data sites, drafting of transaction documents and managing closings for financings and M&A for private companies. Should have a 4-year degree (or equivalent experience) and 5+ years of recent and relevant experience in the business practice group of a law firm or in-house legal department dealing with business transactions.
