Sorry! This position is no longer available!
For Purpose Law is a firm dedicated to helping inspired entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders and philanthropists to change our world.
That means we do a lot of corporate, tax and estate planning work for our clients - who tend to be social entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations of all sizes and types, and high net worth founders/executives who wish to dedicate what they've accumulated in their estate to their communities in additional to their families.
We are seeking to add an experienced transactional attorney to our team. This is NOT an entry-level position with the firm; we are looking for someone well-versed in nonprofit, corporate and tax law.
The ideal candidate should have expertise in seeking and obtaining Federal Tax Exemption for public charities, private foundations, private operating foundations, and other exempt entities under 501(c). The candidate should also be familiar with necessary compliance filings, UBIT, AG audits, etc.
Education and Experience:
We require this candidate to be a graduate of an ABA accredited law school, with a minimum of 3-5 years relevant experience.
Software and Systems:
Required proficiency: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and experience with any legal case management system.
Valued Proficiency: Experience with Clio practice management software.
Hours, Compensation and Benefits:
This is a full-time position with a salary commensurate with your level of experience. There is a three-month probationary period, to ensure we are a good fit. We want to make sure that we are a perfect match and that you will be happy and we will be happy working together. After all, life is too short to spend your days working with people you don't enjoy being around.
If we both determine that you are a great fit, then after those 90 days of satisfactory employment, you will become eligible to receive paid time off, health insurance and flexible spending account benefits and participate in our employer sponsored retirement plan (401(k)). We also match our employee's charitable contributions to the nonprofit organizations of their choice, up to $500/year. We are an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer that values diversity in our workplace.
