Associate Corporate Counsel

| Greater NYC Area

Billables stink. Live your best lawyering life with CB Insights.

The CB Insights legal team needs an associate attorney, with 1-3 years corporate experience (meaning we want you to have at least begun the process of specializing in transactional work - corporate, governance, tech transactions, etc.), although we will consider others with interesting or compelling background experience.

Are you a junior attorney at a decently sized firm who loves lawyering but not the billing in 6-minute increments part? (If you are just SICK of people asking if you’ve ever watched the show “Suits,” that is a plus).

Or perhaps you are currently languishing in-house for a hierarchal department that promised a seat at the table, but in reality, it’s just another law firm role?

You must be organized, in fact, obsessively organized as there is a lot of work to get done. We are growing rapidly, and you will be on the front lines to assist in this growth and help us ensure we stay in order. Attention to detail is not simply a preferred qualification. 

Most importantly, are you someone who can also be a good business partner and team player? Our team supports and works with Sales, Engineering, Product, Marketing, People, you get the picture. We need someone who can delicately and successfully balance the binary-lawyer and ad-hoc business relationship and resulting decisions. In other words, this is not a typical or traditional role, but will be supremely interesting and challenging (full disclosure – notwithstanding the foregoing, there will be lots of the traditional lawyer work as well, don’t you worry).

What will you be doing out of the gate? Learning quickly. Also, helping CBI (safely) grow and expand. But at first, you will begin to take over basic contract negotiations, navigate onerous privacy requirements as they arise, assist in IP-related work, perform various research related to various matter (ha!), work with legal ops to get our contract management system in place for client and vendor contracts. 

Note, if you are a recent law school graduate with a strong background in project management or operations that didn’t land at a large, snooty firm for whatever reason, we can talk. We don’t care if you are from a second or third “tier” school – if you are a capable person who can write, think, and scrap intelligently, we can teach you the rest pretty quickly.

If the above intrigues you, we’d love for you to apply. Please submit a 1-page resume and do your research on CB Insights before our initial phone interview. Knowing what our company does is the first prerequisite!
