The Assistant General Counsel position in the Transactions & Corporate Law Practice Group has significant responsibility for providing legal advice and counsel to Company leaders in connection with a broad range of business transactions and general corporate matters, including in connection with the development of new services and solutions.  This position requires a significant level of independent decision-making regarding matters having Company-wide impact, which decisions are guided by policies, objectives, and inter-department coordination. 

This position will handle a variety of transactions and matters, including: drafting and negotiating key technology agreements with complex data security and data privacy implications; supporting business units with the development and revision of client agreements; providing general support to sales and marketing organizations; reviewing, negotiating, and drafting other contracts; and assisting with analyzing the implications of clients engaged in new industries on Insperity’s complex business model.

  • Minimum of 4 years of transactional legal experience, with a focus on negotiating and drafting agreements and knowledge of contract law and general corporate law
