  • Intellectual Property – Depending upon the successful candidate’s experience and interests, the position may support the patent program including working with outside counsel on patent prosecution matters.

WHY YOU ARE THE PERFECT FIT

  • Unquestionable commitment to integrity. 
  • Positive and upbeat (even when you really don’t feel like it!). The legal business is hard work and sometimes adversarial. The position should be a positive, team-oriented person, and express a consistent desire to exceed expectations. 
  • Creative and solutions oriented. Fundamentally the legal department is a problem solver, and problems require creativity, good judgment and patience (among other skills) to solve successfully. 
  • A relationship builder. You will need to work with many people in many other departments, and will need to help those people and will need to ask for help from those people. The person must enjoy building positive relationships with other people, both within the company and very importantly with the company’s customers with whom the position interacts.
  • Business knowledge. You must have a desire to get to know and understand the company’s technologies, products, services and business, and be willing to put in the extra time to learn. 
  • Excellent Communicator. The legal team communicates constantly – by voice, by email, by memo, by written agreements, in meetings. The position must have very good oral and written skills and be able to present their points crisply and professionally in meetings to disparate audiences. 
  • Organizational skills. The legal department handles many matters in many different areas at the same time. You must have particularly good skills at organizing their work, work-space and time. 
  • Humor, perspective, maturity and patience. In a hard-working environment with many competing demands, the candidate must be able to maintain perspective, balance competing priorities and have patience when other may lose theirs. A good sense of humor is an essential character trait for long-term success and happiness in a legal profession.
