We are a boutique internet and technology law firm with a wealth of high-tech clients ranging from early-stage start-ups to household names in the tech industry. We are seeking an attorney with at least 3 full years of experience advising on both U.S. and EU privacy and data protection matters. Multitalented attorneys who can handle that work and also expertly counsel clients in any related areas of our practice (e.g., Internet law, transactions, gaming, marketing, e-commerce, and consumer protection) are also welcome and encouraged to apply.
The position requires a highly motivated, forward-thinking individual with the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team in a fast-paced legal environment. Although we achieve national accolades (e.g., Law360’s recent Practice Groups of the Year for Privacy and Consumer Protection), we’re not BigLaw: we want attorneys who share our creative and efficient team-oriented approach to clients’ needs, and who can serve as a valued strategic counselor — not simply bill hours. In-house experience is valued; part-time schedules may be accommodated for the right candidate; more experienced attorneys are valued and welcome.
Candidates must have the equivalent of three full years of experience advising on both U.S. and EU and privacy and data protection compliance, including the GDPR and ePrivacy rules. For example, a candidate who has been practicing for four years but who spent only 1/3 of that time on U.S. and EU privacy and data protection compliance would not qualify for this position.
This position is available in our D.C., New York City, San Francisco, or Chicago offices, all of which currently allow full-time remote work due to the pandemic. Candidates should be barred in the jurisdiction in which they will work, but we are open to discussing “foreign legal consultant” status with exceptional foreign attorneys who are eligible to work in the United States.
Candidates should write and communicate well, be able to think strategically and assess risks, and be comfortable working under tight deadlines that clients sometimes impose. Candidates should demonstrate the ability to independently manage projects, interact with clients, and work effectively as a team member.
Salary is commensurate with experience, plus benefits. If you are qualified and interested in this position, please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ZwillGen is not your typical law firm. We take our work seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
