Legal & Compliance - Chief Legal Office, Contracts Attorney
Job Description:
  • Job Description:
Responsibilities :
Blackstone's Legal Department seeks a Contracts Attorney for its Chief Legal Office. The role will report to one of the Managing Directors that co-heads the Chief Legal Office under the Chief Legal Officer/GC and work closely with vendors and cross functional teams.

The successful candidate will work on a variety of matters, with a focus on negotiating vendor and other contracts and managing the contracts process from end-to-end, including working on a centralized depository, tracking key terms, standardization, expiration and reviews of agreements. This role will also be participating in various ad hoc department or cross-firm projects and work closely with the Vendor Risk Management team. This position will require interaction with individuals of all levels in Blackstone's business and corporate groups, other members of the firm's Legal and Compliance group, and outside counsel. This is not an administrative role; the successful candidate will be able to make substantive judgment calls on acceptable contract terms and firmwide processes.

Qualifications :
Blackstone seeks to hire individuals who are highly motivated, proactive, intelligent, and have demonstrated excellence in prior endeavors. The ideal candidate will have a J.D. and have at least three years of experience engaging in substantive contract negotiations. Candidates without a J.D. degree will be considered if they have spent at least six years in a substantive role in an in-house legal environment with primary responsibility for contracts negotiation, standardization and management.

The successful candidate should possess extreme attention to detail, the ability to handle and prioritize multiple tasks and projects simultaneously, exhibit maturity and judgment, and have the ability to build and maintain positive working relationships with individuals across a spectrum of seniority levels and roles in the firm.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, or any other protected category.
