Our team is listening to the needs of small business owners and developing a product that changes how legal and business services are delivered. We aim to empower small businesses and proactively respond to the challenges they face by providing insider's knowledge, expert guidance and industry-leading resources through an account-managed approach.

  • Research business and legal issues as necessary
  • Counsel small business owners and start-ups on general business initiatives
  • Work extensively with internal sales team to meet customers' needs

Candidate must possess:

  • Experience and general enjoyment helping small businesses and start-ups
  • Superb oral and written communication skills with ability to explain legal concepts to non-attorneys on a regular basis in person, over the phone, and online
  • Experience drafting and revising agreements common to small businesses
  • Strong work ethic and desire to exercise initiative, understand business and practical considerations, and work in a fast-paced environment with minimal supervision
  • Excellent legal judgment, business acumen and practical and common sense skills to understand the needs of small business and start-ups and to effectively translate legal principles to small business owners and start-ups in terms they would understand
  • Ability to prioritize work and respond to multiple demands
  • Team-oriented mindset and ability to collaborate
  • Flexibility and adaptability, must-haves in an innovative environment

Qualifications include:

  • J.D. degree and membership in good standing
  • 1-3 years' experience as an attorney working at a law-firm or in-house in a fast-paced legal or business environment
