Our client, a late-stage technology company that has raised over $500million, has exclusively retained Solutus Legal Search to assist the Company in its search for a Vice President of Legal to serve as the top legal executive and manage a team of six legal professionals in the US and Europe. This attorney will report to the CFO and will be a key member of the leadership team. This person will build and lead the legal function and be responsible for providing day-to-day guidance on legal issues, risk mitigation strategies and establishing corporate governance and compliance frameworks. S/he will also work closely with other executives on the Company’s IPO readiness. Our client is headquartered in the SF Bay Area and will consider local candidates or those who wish to work remotely.

The ideal candidate will have at least 12 years of experience with a combination of law firm and in-house experience, including experience in a high growth environment at technology company (software experience is a strongly preferred). This attorney will also have experience working closely with sales teams and sales executives (domestically and internationally) as well as exposure to general corporate and commercial matters. Experience managing a team is required. S/he will possess superb communication skills, ability to thrive in a fast-paced culture and be willing to roll up his/her sleeves to get the job done. This is a dynamic and fast scaling startup and needs a coach/player.

This is a fantastic opportunity and Solutus Legal Search is thrilled to be working with the company on an exclusive basis for this search partnership. Interested candidates may contact us at search@solutuslegal.com. Candidates applying directly to the company will be redirected to Solutus for consideration.
