Corporate Attorney

Focal PLLC, a boutique firm based in Seattle with a focus on technology, media, and internet law, is seeking an experienced attorney to support our securities/corporate practice group. Our ideal candidate would have at least 3 years of corporate & securities transactional experience. More experienced practitioners who are looking to achieve a balanced schedule are encouraged to apply. This fulltime position will primarily involve working on business and corporate matters (including entity formation, corporate governance, financing, and acquisitions). Experience with intellectual property rights and licensing, corporate/partnership formations, and the legal issues facing early-stage technology companies is preferred. Strong analytical and drafting skills and a desire to work collaboratively and engage with clients is essential. We are proud that Focal maintains a collaborative work environment with legal professionals who strive to achieve a healthy work/life balance. Unlike traditional firms that often require 1800+ hours in annual billings, Focal attorneys bill on average 1000 hours a year. Many of our lawyers are former big firm attorneys who wanted to leave “the grind” at big firms. We offer a generous benefits package, including retirement matching, health insurance and paid time off. While we would prefer that the person be in Seattle (and must be licensed in Washington), it is a remote-optional position. We encourage lawyers to interact in-person on occasion, but we have always been a remote-friendly firm and will remain that way. We are an equal-opportunity employer and a certified (NAMWOLF) minority and women-owned law firm. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, genetic information, creed, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other protected status as defined by federal, state, or local law. Women, people of color, LGBTQ candidates, and parents are encouraged to apply. We take pride in our corporate culture as we prioritize wellness, work/life balance, diversity, and inclusion.
