Assistant General Counsel -- M&A Integration

Posted May 18

This position is not eligible to be performed in Alaska, Mississippi, North Dakota, or the Virgin Islands.

Join our team...

GoDaddy (NYSE: GDDY), the company that empowers everyday entrepreneurs, seeks an experienced corporate transactions attorney to support our M&A integration work. This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in the company’s strategic initiative focused on designing and enhancing our approach to integrating companies we acquire. This role will report to the VP, Legal Corporate, M&A, Governance & Legal Operations

What you'll get to do...

  • Lead the legal aspects of integration independently and with limited direct supervision, interacting directly with internal stakeholders, acquired company personnel, external counsel and other advisors
  • Develop and execute a detailed legal integration project plan with CLO Department colleagues for each acquired business, taking into consideration the unique business objectives, challenges, and complexities of each acquired business
  • Coordinate and manage integration initiatives across the CLO Department for multiple acquisitions simultaneously and at different phases of integration
  • Serve as the primary day-to-day counsel to our Strategic Initiatives Team and provide advice and counsel on legal issues that arise throughout the integration process, utilizing a pragmatic, business-oriented approach to problem-solving
  • Review and improve existing --and develop new-- legal playbooks, tools, resources, templates, forms and training to support our global M&A integration strategy and create scalable and repeatable processes
  • Provide legal support for a wide variety of pre-integration M&A activities, including participation in acquisition due diligence and integration strategy to leverage and facilitate an effective and efficient integration process post-closing

Depending on bandwidth and experience, the individual in this role may also be asked to support some of our intercompany corporate and finance transactions from time to time.

Your experience should include...

  • Acting as senior counsel (8+ years) on domestic and international M&A and other corporate and finance transactions (given how interconnected M&A and integration are, understanding the M&A process well is a key skill for this role)
  • Demonstrating a depth of legal knowledge, including familiarity with specialized areas that arise frequently in integrations (e.g., legal entity structuring, commercial contracts, marketing, product, intellectual property, accounting, tax, employment matters, privacy and security, compliance)
  • Exhibiting excellent business judgment and strategic thinking
  • Being a fast learner who is curious, keen to learn new businesses, products and services and comfortable asking questions to get up to speed quickly and effectively
  • Developing simple, effective and repeatable processes, policies and frameworks that can be deployed by a cross-functional integration team (and enjoying this type of work!)
  • Effectively joining forces with internal and external stakeholders, including Strategic Initiatives, Finance, Corporate Accounting, Procurement, Treasury, Tax and the CLO Department
  • Comfortably and confidently advising and interacting with colleagues and senior leaders, and having a demonstrated ability to influence and partner with different constituencies
  • Displaying excellent communication skills, both written and oral, and a keen attention to detail
  • Thriving as part of a collaborative and fun team committed to delivering white-glove client service in a fast-paced and rapidly changing environment
  • Being able to work independently and collaboratively and manage multiple projects in an efficient and timely manner

We've got your back... Enjoy our many benefits (My Wallet), which may vary depending on role and tenure, including paid time off, 401k, bonus eligibility, equity grants and parental leave. Join one of our employee resource groups (Culture). Once approved, continue to have a side hustle if you have one (we love entrepreneurs, remember?). Most importantly, come as you are and make your own way.
