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. We value any previous business or academic experience. All candidates must be admitted to the Arizona Bar or willing to sit for the Arizona Bar.
Our most successful hires are often lawyers with ties to the Southwest, coming to us after stints with BigLaw firms. 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.
Corporate Transactions Associate
Osborn Maledon is seeking an associate with up to 4 years of experience to join our corporate transactions group. Our corporate clients range from startup ventures to household names, while our investor clients range from angels to family offices to established venture capital and private equity firms. Osborn Maledon is known as a market leader in representing technology companies, entrepreneurs, and investors in the Southwest’s growth-company ecosystem. 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.
Members of our corporate transactions group previously worked at Mayer Brown, Latham & Watkins, Morris Nichols, Polsinelli and others. The associate we are seeking will work with us in counseling clients in connection with sophisticated transactions ranging from strategic and financial M&A deals, angel and venture capital financings, joint ventures, debt offerings and other complex commercial transactions. This associate will also be an integral part of our outside general counsel services, working directly with clients in corporate governance, sophisticated contracting, and other day-to-day matters.
We will also consider a candidate’s prior business, technical or financial experience.
Osborn Maledon is seeking a litigation associate with a judicial clerkship and/or other prior legal experience. Our litigation is frequently on the cutting edge of legal developments in Arizona. And our litigators work in small teams – often just two lawyers – which gives our lawyers opportunities early in their careers to assume significant roles in the litigation.
As a firm, we are dedicated to providing an inclusive professional work environment where people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives pool their talents and successes. For this reason, we strongly encourage diverse candidates to apply for these positions. We best serve our clients and community when we have the opportunity to collaborate openly with colleagues with varied points of view and approaches to deliver creative and effective solutions for our clients.
