I’ve done corporate deal work my entire legal career.
You’re negotiating in your clients’ interests, but you’re also building the foundation for a successful and mutually beneficial partnership. It’s a great mix of negotiating key legal issues, being commercial, and keeping the big picture in mind.
This is a dream job for me.
Every day is different. The deal work is fast-paced and I also have a lot of opportunities to help our internal teams and our portfolio companies. Teamwork motivates me and I’m excited by the ability to be a thought-partner to the whole Point72 Ventures team.
