This is the type of job that lawyers covet, a small but growing asset management company, seeks an experienced securities lawyer who will serve as its sole in-house General Counsel. The company currently manages three funds actively investing in complex equity and equity-linked, as well as debt, securities of small-cap foreign publicly-traded companies in privately-negotiated transactions.

ā¢Transactional securities work (e.g. private securities offerings)
ā¢Investment adviser legal issues (and be particularly familiar with the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and general fund compliance matters)

Prior in-house experience is preferred. A minimum of six years of legal experience is necessary. Major law firm experience acquired at some point in the candidateās career is necessary. New York bar is a requirement. No relocation. Travel is expected to be limited. This position has no direct supervisory responsibilities, but the candidate will serve as a coach and mentor for his or her colleagues within the firm.

A competitive base salary, a competitive bonus and benefits will be provided, along with coverage for CLE.
