CORPlaw

Are you an experienced corporate attorney with outstanding negotiation and communication skills and in-depth transactional knowledge of multiple areas of the law? If so, we’d love to connect. Our company is ramping up for massive growth and we need someone to provide sound counsel on a variety of legal matters and help us analyze, negotiate, and execute deals. Our ideal applicant will have several years of corporate law experience, be in good standing with the state bar association, and thrives in a fast-paced work environment.

Being a phenomenal lawyer is our bare minimum. There are plenty of those. We want more. On top of that, we seek an assertive, energetic go-getter, who is self-directed and highly accountable and who is not defeated, jaded, or a curmudgeon. We want someone who is actively searching for a great cultural fit and who wants to be a part of an innovative team environment.

Commensurate with experience. Negotiable salary, plus additional incentives, benefits (health coverage, 401K, etc.), remote or in-person option per team-member preference and satisfaction of performance objectives, and more. Opportunity to increase earnings through various incentive options available for our top performers.

About CORPlaw

Our company at CORPlaw represents really cool companies (think crypto millionaires, high-growth tech start-ups, esports, influencers, etc.) as their full-service, litigation, and transactional, outside General Counsel. This isn't "door law". We don't touch family law, PI, criminal, etc., but we do offer a wide range of services to holistically advise clients as their fractional GCs (think employment, IP, contracts, raising capital, management of business disputes, and all areas where business and law collide).


Our tech-forward firm has a physical office space in WeWork Brickell City Center and operates a hybrid in-person and remote team environment. Some of our staff are fully remote and some take advantage of or otherwise simply prefer working from an in-person space. We accommodate both options much to the appreciation of our modern team and clients. We embraced remote before a pandemic required it.
