Fresh off the Blockchain

Corporate Counsel @ Group of Crypto/Blockchain Portfolio Companies

United States [Remote]
$220,000-$250,000

 

About This Company:

Want to join the metaverse? Interested in helping a dozen or so startups navigate the legal and regulatory uncertainties of the crypto and blockchain spaces? Looking for the rare opportunity in crypto where a team is currently growing, not shrinking?

This family of crypto and blockchain startups does everything from decentralized social media, to telehealth services, to philanthropy. While most of the startups are early-stage, all of them are internally-capitalized and some already have significant revenue, either through physical securities services or node sales. Coming off a string of successes, their CLO has given us the green light to help him build out their legal team, with six new legal hires!

 

About This Role:

As a Corporate Counsel, you'll work on a wide variety of legal matters for a growing number or portfolio companies in the blockchain space. Beyond negotiating contracts, advising on M&A transactions, and handling the day-to-day legal needs of growing startups, you'll also get great cross-functional exposure, working with marketing, sales and products teams, as well as senior leadership. This is a junior role that can serve as your entrée into the world of blockchain, with plenty of opportunity for mentorship from attorneys who are veterans of the space.

 

Responsibilities:
  • Act as a trusted advisor on all legislative and regulatory developments affecting the business
  • Advise on M&A transactions and other strategic initiatives 
  • Review, draft, negotiate, and advise on a wide variety of commercial agreements to meet business and legal requirements
  • Support the development, management, implementation, and continuous improvement of legal and risk-management processes and procedures
  • Manage day-to-day interactions with business partners, outside counsel, and other stakeholders
  • Provide corporate governance support, including preparing corporate resolutions and meeting materials
  • Address legal risk in business-centric ways, developing processes to solve problems, strengthening partnerships, and advancing opportunities


About You:
  • JD with bar admission in good standing in at least one jurisdiction
  • 1+ years of corporate legal experience at a top-tier law firm and/or in-house
  • Former blockchain or crypto experience is a huge plus but not required
  • Interest in blockchain and crypto is a must!
