Description: IP Counsel/Transactional M&A/Private Equity

Position: Counsel

Notes: We are working with a Top 50 firm's NYC office that is looking for a Counsel level candidate (a partner without business would be fine) with big M&A deal experience who can support their PE practice and run their IP diligence work. The candidate would be working with the IP transactional group and, while they want someone to focus exclusively on IP diligence, the firm is open to someone who would also want to do some Cyber Security type work (but no licensing or trademark).

This is a great position for someone who wants a leadership role without the pressure of business development that comes with partnership. Plus, this firm is not a sweat shop � they have a great firm culture. The candidate would essentially be managing the M&A support side of the practice and taking ownership of it. Also, the PE work there is a lot more exciting than the public M&A work that a lot of larger firms focus on.

Years Experience: (8 - 12)


Bar Requirements: New York


Location: USA - NY - New York

Date Opened: 07/18/2019

Code: 4505273

I couldn't recommend Mitch more for anyone looking to transition in the legal world. I had spoken with Mitch a few months earlier when I was thinking about getting out of an AM Law 100 firm that just wasn't the right fit for me. I wasn't in a rush and never really worked with recruiters in the legal realm before, so a few months later, through my own efforts, I had accepted a position with a small IP firm. Unfortunately, the firm lost a major client and had to rescind my offer a week later. In crisis mode, I reached out to Mitch again who made me his number one priority. Within a few days, Mitch sent my resume package out to firms he deemed relevant. Mitch's inside knowledge of the legal field and the connections he's developed over his years of experience helped reassure me that I wouldn't be out of a job for too long - which turned out to be true! I had an interview less than a week later for a position that was much better suited to my background and the work-life balance I was seeking. Two days after the interview, I had accepted an offer from the firm, and I couldn't be more pleased. Mitch performed what I formerly thought to be the impossible
