The New York Public Library
Libraries are the memory of humankind, irreplaceable repositories of documents of human thought and action. The New York Public Library comprises simultaneously a set of scholarly research collections and a network of community libraries, and its intellectual and cultural range is both global and local, while singularly attuned to New York City.
That combination lends to the Library an extraordinary richness.
As the Associate Counsel for The New York Public Library, you will
assist the Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary and the Deputy General Counsel and Assistant Secretary with the Library's legal needs and coordination of outside counsel work. You will have transactional and advisory responsibility for matters relating to corporate and not-for-profit law; negotiating and drafting agreements; real estate and leasing transactions; litigation supervision; corporate governance; collection acquisitions and exhibitions; intellectual property, publishing and licensing issues; and tax matters.
To qualify, you must have a Bachelor's degree and a Juris Doctorate degree and be a member of the New York Bar. You will also have at least three to five years of broad professional experience in a law firm or corporate legal office, with emphasis on general corporate, contracting and transactional work; excellent communication and interpersonal skills; and proficient computer skills. Demonstrated legal experience
in real estate, not-for-profits, intellectual property, government contracting/requirements, and litigation is a plus!
