Corporate Transactions Associate
Osborn Maledon, P.A., one of Arizona's premier law firms, is seeking an associate with 2-3 years of experience to join our corporate transactions group. Osborn Maledon is a market leader representing technology companies, entrepreneurs and investors in the Southwest’s growth-company ecosystem. Our corporate clients range from startup ventures to household names, while our investor clients range from angels to family offices to established venture capital firms. We are committed to serving as trusted advisors to all our clients providing them with the core outside general counsel services needed throughout their lifecycles.
Our most successful hires are often lawyers with ties to the Southwest, coming to us after stints with Biglaw firms. Members of our corporate transactions group have come to us from Jones Day, Latham & Watkins, Morris Nichols and others. These lawyers have thrived in an environment where they continue to have a sophisticated corporate practice, but also experience the quality of life offered by Arizona's outdoor lifestyle, family-friendly pace of life, and low cost of living. We pride ourselves on providing our young lawyers with significant opportunities for community leadership and client development success -- opportunities often unavailable with other firms and in other legal markets.
The associate we are seeking will work with us in M&A transactions, debt and equity financings, venture capital and private equity transactions, entity formation and restructuring, and securities offerings. This associate will be an integral part of our outside general counsel services, working directly with clients in sophisticated contracting, equity compensation and other day-to-day matters.
We require top academic performance from a nationally-ranked law school, strong writing and analytical skills, effective communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to work in a collegial team environment. All candidates must be admitted to the Arizona Bar or willing to sit for the Arizona Bar. We will also take into account a candidate's prior business, technical or financial experience.
