From assisting various global sales and operations teams, to coordinating cross-functional projects, your involvement in all aspects of the business is not just encouraged – it’s essential. As a result, you’ll need to be comfortable working through complex problems to identify the key issues and use your legal expertise to find the best commercial outcome.
As a key member of the Legal Team, you will work closely with our New York, San Francisco, London and Australian teams to find legal solutions to real world business problems.
