If you are an entrepreneurial, creative, business-minded corporate attorney who cares about leveling the playing field for small businesses and start-ups, we would love to talk to you. LegalZoom Global Services is looking for an exceptional corporate attorney with 1-3 years of experience advising small businesses and start-ups to work with the B2B Sales and Innovation team. 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. The team understands successful small businesses have a positive impact on families, communities and local and global economies, and so are driven by helping small business owners succeed.

 

Our team members:

  • Possess a service-to-others mindset
  • Value a “lean startup” culture focused on creative problem solving and quick context switching
  • Are not afraid to take risks and fail if it leads to a better solution
  • Are equally strong in a team as they are as independent operators
  • Aim to maintain a calm disposition coupled with a sense of humor and fun

 

What you’ll do:

  • Advise and counsel small businesses and start-ups on general business and legal matters including corporate and LLC formation, investment and financing of the company, partnership and shareholder matters, real estate and employment issues, and other commercial, regulatory compliance, and operational matters
  • Review, draft and revise agreements common to small businesses and start-ups, such as bylaws and operating agreements, shareholder agreements, promissory notes and loan documents, commercial purchase and lease agreements, website terms and conditions and privacy policies, demand letters, employment agreements, independent contractor agreements, vendor and supply agreements, and other business agreements
  • 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 with the Texas bar
  • 1-3 years’ experience as an attorney working at a law-firm or in-house in a fast-paced legal or business environment
  • Ideal candidate will have previous experience owning and/or operating a small business or start-up
  • Ideal qualities include some background in tax, securities, intellectual property, and providing general litigation advice
