Simply Legal LLP

Experienced Transactional Business Paralegal

We are an entrepreneurial law firm that is on track for growth and we need a paralegal with strong experience in all aspects of business transactions, who can hit the ground running as we build our dream team. We are expanding and relocating from Brickell to Sunny Isles Beach, where we are building out our suite in a brand new building with an ocean view.

We are growing fast, and we are investing time and energy in building our A-Team. Team culture is really important to our company. We lean on each other and work together to grow the company. If you are the kind of gal/guy that will roll up their sleeves to get the job done, keep reading! We are known for finding creative ways to find solutions, so being a problem solver is a must. We are all different but we respect each other - we don’t judge or gossip – so we will not allow that behavior from anyone in the team. 

There will be training on the types of legal matters we handle, how we process our files, how to use our case management system. However, we are looking for someone who can hit the ground running. 

Being part of a team and not just having a J-O-B is important to all of us at Simply Legal, so besides offering incredible growth opportunities, impacting our client’s lives with our work, and being in a family-like environment, we offer the following benefits: 

  • Eleven (11) paid holidays
  • Ten (10) paid personal days
  • Paid parking
  • Monthly health insurance stipend
  • Eligibility to participate in the firm’s 401k plan being launched in January 2022

For the right person, this will be a highly rewarding position. If this sounds like a good fit for you, you will need to complete a two-step process in order to be considered. First, apply for this position and include your résumé and a cover letter as a PDF document. If we review your résumé and think we might be a good fit, we will send you a written interview. Applicants who successfully complete the written interview will be contacted for an in-person interview. 

Responsibilities

THIS IS NOT A LITIGATION POSITION. Please do not apply if you only have litigation experience. The ideal candidate will have experience taking initiative on work that needs to be done and completing tasks with minimal supervision. 
This is NOT the right opportunity for someone looking for their first professional job or for an introduction to transactional work. 
Initial compensation is based on projected productivity and performance. Bonus compensation will be available on a performance basis. 

The essential job duties include: 

  • Providing outstanding customer service and prompt communication to clients and referral sources
  • Updating in case management the clients’ projects with any relevant matter events, deadlines, and reminders
  • Filing new entities, amending articles, converting entities, and other entity work in the Division of Corporations for the State of Florida and Delaware, with little to no supervision
  • Requesting EINs online and in paper with little to no supervision
  • Drafting the bases for corporate documents, such as operating agreements, resolutions, consents, addendums to agreements, and others, for attorney review
  • Drafting demand letters and cease and desist letters for attorney review
  • Completion of applications for governmental agencies, such as liquor licenses, trademark applications, nonprofits, etc., for attorney review
  • Drafting of contract term sheets for agreements entered into by clients
  • Drafting bases for Letters of Intent and Memorandums of Understanding
  • Flawless coordination of full execution of documents by all parties

Qualifications

This is a key position in the firm. It is a full-time job, so you MUST be able to work in the office.

Experience and Skills Required:

  • A minimum of 5 years of prior experience as a transactional (non-litigation) corporate paralegal is required
  • You must be able to complete bases for a variety of corporate documents with little supervision
  • Excellent Spanish, verbal and written, is required
  • You must have excellent spelling and grammar
  • Accuracy and attention to detail are required to avoid mistakes that can cost our clients (and us) dearly. This is important. Make sure that this is a skill that you are known for
  • You will be working on many tasks and cases concurrently, over long periods of time. We expect you to keep track of key dates, keep the right people informed, and prioritize your time so that we never miss a deadline
  • You must be able to work independently and as part of a team understanding that other team members will be relying on your ability to move things through the pipeline
  • We are a fast-paced law firm that needs team members who work well under pressure. If you get frazzled easily with juggling multiple deadlines, this job is not for you
  • Bring your energy, positivity, and a “can-do” attitude to work every day
  • You MUST be a positive person. If your middle name is “Drama,” you will not be successful here
  • If you walk through life seeing opportunities where other people see problems, you will probably do well here
  • If you find yourself thinking of why things can’t work instead of how they can, you will not be happy here
  • Because we help individuals with very sensitive matters, every member of our team must be conscientious and trustworthy. We will be doing a background check and disqualifying anyone with a history of fraud, theft, embezzlement, or anything that is an indicator of dishonesty

Compensation
$50,000 - $70,000 yearly
