Privacy and Digital Media Attorney

We are a boutique Internet and technology law firm based in Washington, D.C., 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 4 years of privacy and digital media experience to join our small but growing New York office.

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 most 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.

Essential Job Functions

The ideal candidate will have worked closely with clients in some (not necessarily all) of the following areas:

  • Counseling digital media and ad tech/martech companies
  • Counseling companies regarding federal and state privacy statutes (FTC Act, COPPA, CalOPPA, FCRA, CAN-SPAM, TCPA, ECPA, etc.)
  • Reviewing, editing and/or drafting basic tech transactions or data licensing agreements
  • Drafting and revising online privacy policies and terms of use
  • Counseling clients on self-regulatory standards affecting online advertising
  • Counseling on foreign data privacy laws, particularly regarding GDPR preparedness

Candidates should write and communicate well, be able to think strategically and assess risks, and be comfortable working under tight deadlines that start-up clients sometimes impose.

Salary commensurate with experience, plus benefits. The position is for our New York City office.

If you are qualified and interested in this position please email your resume to recruiting@zwillgen.com.

Our Culture

At ZwillGen we like the work we do and we like each other. We take our work seriously but do not take ourselves too seriously. We are looking for people who feel the same way and who will both enjoy and contribute to our friendly and lively atmosphere.

We are a team. We work collaboratively and everyone pitches in on firm-related tasks, both large and small. We like self-starters who have a good sense of humor and can make (and take) a joke.

In addition to our casual dress policy, we enjoy a well stocked kitchen, spontaneous happy hours, in-house massages, firm fantasy sports leagues, and other fun firm events.
