Commercial Counsel

Posted Dec 2

CommentSold, a leader in the live commerce space, is looking for a super commercial contracts attorney to support its growing business. You will provide critical support to the business by drafting, reviewing and negotiating sales, partner, and vendor contracts. You would be the second attorney hired by the company, reporting directly to the Chief Legal Officer. This is a fantastic opportunity for an attorney to build upon a solid commercial contracts background and also develop experience in additional areas such as corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, employment, privacy, and intellectual property law.

In this role, you will be responsible for

  • Commercial Contracts: Draft, review, negotiate and resolve sales, partner and vendor contracts. This role will need to work closely with the Sales and Partner teams to help them meet their goals. It will need to take initiative and use independent judgment to find solutions rather than just spot issues
  • Legal Operations/Contract Lifecycle Management: Help to improve the contract lifecycle management process by using technology tools and creating and revising procedures to make it easier and faster to close contracts
  • Business Development: Work with our business development team to draft, review, and negotiate contracts with potential partners
  • Product Counseling: We are constantly updating and revising our offerings and need to draft new and updated contracts to be able to sell them. This person will need to understand our products and use their creativity to draft new agreements that reflect the legal and commercial realities of the markets into which we sell
  • Broad Legal Coverage: This role provides support to the CLO in a wide variety of legal areas. Immediate areas where you will be able to contribute are corporate governance, employment, and privacy. Additionally you could work on mergers and acquisitions and intellectual property law based on needs and bandwidth

If you’re right for this role, you

  • Have a Growth Mindset: You are going to be one of two lawyers at the company, so you will need to be curious and eager to learn new things. Doing something you have never done before should excite you
  • Have the Right Amount of Ego: You will need to believe in yourself enough to take on new challenges, but be humble enough to listen to others
  • Are Team Oriented: You want to support the company, other teams and your team to meet their collective goals
  • Are Goal Oriented: You deliver on time and delight customers
  • Have a J.D. from an accredited law school
  • Have a minimum of 3-5 years of experience drafting, reviewing and negotiating commercial contracts, especially SaaS and e-commerce agreements
  • Preferably have experience working in-house at fast-growth tech companies. SaaS software experience would be a strong differentiator.
  • Are licensed to practice in the jurisdiction in which you practice
  • Are able to work US Eastern and/or Central time zone work day hours most days
  • Have the ability to travel within the US periodically for company or team events
