Advertising Technology Attorney: NY or DC Office

📍 Washington, DC or New York, NY

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 either our NY or DC office.

The position requires a highly motivated, forward-thinking individual with the ability to work collaboratively in a fast-paced legal environment. We achieve national accolades (e.g., Chambers Ranked, Law360’s recent Practice Groups of the Year for Privacy and Consumer Protection), but 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.

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

  • Privacy compliance for ad tech and martech vendors, publishers and data providers, including how the CCPA and GDPR apply to such companies
  • Advising clients regarding self-regulatory (NAI, DAA) compliance
  • Drafting contracts and policies regarding digital media and digital privacy
  • Applying COPPA to digital data and digital media
  • Ad tech and martech strategic counseling and compliance (e.g., development and implementation of privacy tools and policies)

The candidate should have at least a working understanding of (and the ability to explain) the most prevalent ad tech and martech models, e.g., display media, precise location data collection and usage, data onboarding, cookieless technologies, data syncing across multiple platforms, and connected TV.

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.

Bonus Points

Good sense of humor and strong knowledge of pop culture.

Salary is commensurate with experience, plus benefits. If you are qualified and interested in this position, please email your resume to recruiting@zwillgen.com.
