Associate Counsel

| Greater NYC Area

Background

TrialSpark is a technology company that brings new medical treatments to patients faster by reimagining the clinical trial process.

Today, a clinical trial can cost more than $100M and take 10 years to complete, bottlenecking the development of new treatments for patients. We’re fundamentally changing how trials are run, rethinking the trial process both from a technology and operational perspective. To achieve this, we’re bringing together talent from top technology, service, and healthcare companies to work side by side.

Talent is critical to TrialSpark’s mission and success. Improving clinical research is one of the most impactful problems to be working on, and it requires the best and the brightest. We’re a team of mission-oriented, ambitious, yet humble individuals working in a dynamic space and growing fast.

Job Description

As TrialSpark’s second lawyer, you will focus primarily on commercial contracts but should expect to work on any number of legal matters with stakeholders across the company. Responsibilities include, without limitation and subject to revision at TrialSpark’s sole discretion at any time and for any reason or no reason (that’s a joke (but we do mix things up like all the time)):

  • Draft, negotiate, and otherwise drive contracts with vendors, clinical organizations, pharmaceutical entities, and strategic partners
  • Distill complex legal concepts for legal and non-legal colleagues
  • Resolve contractual complications
  • Exercise pragmatic, risk-based, and adaptable judgment to prioritize work and obligations
  • Judiciously outsource to external attorneys and supervise their work product
  • Manage contract database and contracting resources, as needed

Qualifications

  • A law degree from a top-tier law school and qualified to practice law in-house in New York
  • 3-5 years experience in relevant areas of the law, at a law firm and/or in house at a startup
  • You are a high growth learner who’s scrappy, flexible, and self-motivated
  • General technical aptitude to represent company requirements/interests
  • Service-orientation but able to advocate for and drive issues independently
  • A team player who works well with non-legal stakeholders
  • Strong conceptual and critical thinking skills
  • Eye for organization but also efficiency
  • Great sense of humor

You will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
