Venture Capital Startup Associate - Silicon Valley

Alchemy Legal - Silicon Valley, CA

Venture Capital Startup Associates – Silicon Valley, CA

One of our Full-Service Corporate boutique firms in SV is looking to bring on more attorneys at all levels (junior, mid, senior)— people who share their vision for a firm that provides excellent counsel in an empowering environment, who thrive on providing responsive service, and who want to develop genuine relationships with clients.

Ideal candidates:

• Have at least 2 years of experience specifically in the early stage startup/VC space; • Have solid corporate experience at a top Silicon Valley/venture firm; • Possess excellent communication/organizational skills and diligent attention to detail; • Are confident/self-assured; • Have the ability to work well under pressure and multi-task in a fast-paced environment; and • Bring a sense of humor and an energetic personality.

What we offer:

1. Exciting work and phenomenal deal flow. Over the past five years alone, we advised clients in well over 800 VC/Angel financings and 85 acquisitions. We are working with clients backed by tier-one venture capitalists. Our clients are doing deals with global enterprise players. On the investor side, we represent about 2 dozen prominent VCs, “Super Angels” and individual angels. We are consistently across the table from the largest firms in Silicon Valley.

2. Significantly lower billable hours expectations. Our associates and paralegals average around 1,200-1,300 hours per year, including unlimited hours billed to the firm/pro bono. While the hours are lower, due to the quality of our clients, the work is still intense, but the lower hours load enables everyone to work well together, deliver an excellent client service experience, and then have enough non-working hours to have lives and families and be interesting people.

3. Competitive compensation. Associate pay is significantly higher than other boutiques and on par with in-house roles. We offer full medical, vision and dental coverage (for employees and dependents), as well as a 401(k) plan, a monthly transportation and smartphone subsidies.

4. Outstanding colleagues. Our team is made up of attorneys, paralegals and other professionals who were trained at Orrick, Gunderson, Fenwick and other top firms. We bring the same passion and commitment to our work here as we brought to those firms. We also bring a love of fun and good humor that was often missing from these prior jobs (possibly because we feel more empowered at work, we truly enjoy working with one another and we have more time for fun in our private lives).

5. Entrepreneurial spirit. We represent entrepreneurs (and the people who support them) and we are entrepreneurs ourselves. We are building a different type of law firm that provides excellent counsel in an ultra-responsive manner and remains fun with time for personal pursuits and passions. You can help us continue to build something great.

Compensation will be commensurate with experience, salary is flexible. Prestigious law firm provides great environment and working atmosphere.

To hear more (confidentially of course), please email your resume along with salary expectations.

Thank you,

Ivonne Garcia
