LEWIS & ASSOCIATES is a leader in providing Legal and Administrative staffing services. We are a sole source staffing firm giving you convenient ways of working with us. We make every effort to ensure the highest degree of professionalism and integrity in the staffing process. We understand the demanding role of recruiting to source the highest level of legal professionals while incorporating proven, innovative, and successful recruiting techniques.
Since 1899, our client has remained a Boston firm through and through. Although smaller in number than their national competitors, the firm’s attorneys have remained competitive in their core practices of business and litigation law.
Once hailed by the Boston Business Journal as one of the best places to work in Beantown, the firm has become one of the largest firms in Massachusetts. In addition to business and litigation, the firm has developed practices in health care, real estate law, labor and employment law, government enforcement and wealth management, as well as notable intellectual property and technology practices.
This firm is built different than other leading law firms. They conduct their highly-focused national and international practice from one office in Boston, giving their lawyers the best of both worlds: high-stakes work in a close-knit environment, where partners truly care about associates’ long-term development and work every day to help them improve.
We are seeking an experienced licensing and technology transactions attorney with a minimum of seven years’ experience to work in its Business Department. The individual should be well-versed in a broad range of software and data transactions and commercial contracts. The Private Equity and Business & Technology practices include working with emerging and established companies and venture capital and private equity investors and their portfolio companies in a range of industries, including enterprise and SaaS software and services, FinTech, HealthIT, internet and digital media.
Extensive experience in strategic licensing and general commercial licensing transactions for technology companies; strategic alliances and joint development agreements; open source issues; and due diligence in private equity and venture capital transactions is required. Experience advising clients on a range of compliance strategies regarding privacy, data protection, international data transfers and cybersecurity is a plus.
Qualified candidates should have outstanding academic credentials; very strong drafting and writing skills; excellent client relationship and interpersonal skills; and ability to manage significant workflow, including more junior members of a team. Large law firm and/or in-house experience with a large company is required. The ideal candidate will have a strong technical background in engineering/computer science.
