With your innate mentoring skills, you will guide the legal team in analyzing, reviewing and advising on contracts, agreements, transactions, divestitures and joint ventures and oversee multi-jurisdictional matters.
The second Corporate Counsel will have 4+ years of experience within a complex organization and will provide sound legal advice on a wide range of projects and corporate issues. Currently an associate or in house Counsel, you can recommend appropriate courses of action based upon thorough risk analysis in order to facilitate effective decision-making.
