We also offer opportunities for growth and promotion.

Essential Job Functions

The ideal candidate will possess both a high school diploma and a college degree or substantial completion of a college degree, with at least one year of office experience or a comparable level of responsibility. This is a full-time position that rarely requires overtime although the candidate must be willing to occasionally work extra hours. The candidate must possess a varied skill set including, but not limited to, strong written and verbal communication skills and the ability to coordinate and manage numerous tasks concurrently. The expertise and finesse to manage a front-desk environment and maintain an organized and efficient work area is essential. A mandatory requirement of this role is prior experience and familiarity in performing online research. The interest and capacity to learn new software and tasks quickly is imperative.

Privacy and eCommerce Law Attorney

📍 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 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 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 one or more (not necessarily all) of the following areas:

  • Counseling companies regarding federal and state privacy statutes (CCPA, COPPA, CalOPPA, FTC Act, FCRA, CAN-SPAM, TCPA, ECPA, etc.).
  • Counseling clients regarding data security protocols, data breach response, and/or internal data and privacy governance policies.
  • Drafting and revising online privacy policies and terms of use.
  • Counseling clients regarding payment issues, such as money transmitter laws and Bank Secrecy Act, payment card rules and negotiations, gift card, escheat and stored value laws.
  • Counseling client on international data privacy laws, particularly regarding GDPR compliance.

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.
