Job Description

This Investment Fund Management practice within a national law firm has grown substantially and has an exciting opportunity for an attorney with experience advising on investment management companies, venture capital, private equity, family office, and real estate funds.

Why this position stands out:

  • This is young and energetic practice. The partners are in the early stage of the partnership, are entrepreneurial, and excited to grow the practice.
  • This is truly an entrepreneurial law firm. Innovative ideas that fit their business model are fully supported to pursue, even as an associate. In fact, originating credit is given to associates for new clients that are brought to the firm!
  • You are able to become a partner with no ceiling on your growth or the growth of your practice. This is a partnership track position where the partnership track is clear and attainable.
  • I have placed several associate-level attorneys who are now thriving partners today at this firm who are making more money than they ever thought possible and enjoying their practice growth.

What you’ll do:
This position will cover a wide array of fund types and investment strategies, including private equity, venture capital, and real estate funds. You may also analyze investment funds for pension funds and family office clients.

This associate will assist clients with fund formation, handling all drafting and documentation, and helping clients work through complex issues related to formation. For established funds, you will negotiate and draft side letters and closing investment documents, manage the closing process, and review and respond to all compliance and operational securities issues related to investment funds, investment advisors, and broker-dealers.

You’re ideally an attorney with a minimum of three years of experience advising on investment strategies. The successful candidate will have experience with the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and the Investment Company Act of 1940.

It’s your choice as to where and how you wish to work. This position is open to the attorney working fully remote, hybrid, OR in an in-person office. This firm has several offices across the United States AND a fully-remote arm as well.

Our commitment to you:
Your information will be kept in strict confidence and not shared with our client until we’ve had a conversation with you about the opportunity and you’ve given us permission to move forward. You will be required to submit a JD transcript if selected for a screening interview.
