ECVC Senior Counsel

$350,000 - $450,000

Are you looking for a unique, fully remote position at a big law firm where you’ll lead sophisticated financing transactions and interact directly with some of the most well-known investors in venture capital?  If so, join  Wilson Sonsini’s ECVC practice in a role focused on representing the investors who support emerging growth businesses. 

We are looking for a non-partnership track senior counsel candidate with a demonstrated interest in these industries who has at least 8 years of ECVC experience, with a strong focus on investor-side work.  This position does not require travel or building your own book of business.  Instead, you will focus on fostering these investor relations and providing exceptional client service. The ideal candidate will be an excellent lawyer who enjoys training associates. 

As part of this investor-side “SWAT team,” you will manage and oversee the execution of venture investments, often standing in as the partner-level resource on a deal, with a team of associates assisting your efforts.  From the Sand Hill Road giants and prominent corporate venture capital arms to pension plans and sovereign wealth funds, you will work on Preferred Stock financings with both seed-stage start-ups and pre-IPO unicorns—often on the same day.  Clients in this practice group represent a diverse range of industries, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, autonomous vehicles, aviation, big data, cleantech and climate solutions, data storage, digital health and wellness, digital media and entertainment, electronic gaming, fintech, life sciences, robotics, semiconductors, software, and SaaS, and web3, among other emerging and disruptive technologies.
