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 - Corporate Law The candidate will be responsible for drafting documents for formation of new entities, board and stockholder actions, maintenance of minute books, corporate records and stock ledgers, option plan administration, blue sky and other state and federal filings. Transactional responsibilities will include due diligence production and/or review, drafting of miscellaneous transaction documents, and management of closings on venture capital financing and merger and acquisition transactions. Must have a four-year degree and 7+ years of experience as a corporate securities paralegal working with emerging growth companies. Local firm experience preferred. Strong knowledge of California and Delaware corporate law, federal and state securities laws, option plan administration, venture capital finance and private company M&A required. Experience with public offerings, public company reporting/compliance, and secured lending a plus.
