Washington, D.C. and Baltimore
My name’s Mike Coughlin and I’m Director of Special Project Attorney Placement here at Hire Counsel, which is my fancy way of saying attorney recruiter/head-hunter/guy that finds lawyers work.
There’s a need for high-level transactional attorneys on a contractual basis, at roughly $100/hr, popping up left and right.
Basically, everywhere I turn, I’m getting requests for people who can do the grunt work, if you will, of SEC related filings: S-1, 10-Q, 8-K, and 10-K specifically have come up, as has a need to negotiate underwriting agreements and offering circulars; people who know their way around the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, compliance with FINRA, and so on.
I’m also seeing a need for help with Fund Formation and Financing, Private Wealth Management, and other higher level transactional law that involves rich people and their money.
Duration: Anywhere from 3 months at 60-100 hours/week to 12 months at 40/week, though typically firms are looking for 6 months, 40 hours a week, at $105/hr.
Yes, these are mostly contract/temp positions, but I AM working with a few firms looking to hire permanently. If you’re only open to perm, that’s great, but, please, let me know.
Rate: $100-120/hr, depending on experience
Location: Most of the roles are remote. Obviously, the ability to come into the office in the future is a plus, so DC/NYC area attorneys may have a leg up in that department, but that’s speculative on my part.
Honestly, this is the type of work that you either know how to do or you don’t.
You’re a lawyer with an active bar (usually, they prefer a bar active in the state where you reside/will physically be doing the work).
You’ll likely have a “Big Law” background, or experience at a high-level regulatory agency.
You probably graduated from a top 50 law school.
I was a lawyer for years, but it was mostly divorces, PI, and some mortgage fraud litigation – in other words: not this. I *do* have roles for guys like me, so don’t hesitate to reach out, though.
Hire Counsel posts these roles on LinkedIn, and on the hirecounsel.com website, so you can check those out from time to time, but the best way to connect is to simply email your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org
