The firm has a great culture and a fantastic team. It is a great place for a robust, entrepreneurial and ambitious individual looking for growth and development.

The culture is relaxed, informal and friendly with a focus on philanthropy. Cultural and personality fit will be crucial for this hire, and you must thrive in the fast pace of private equity. The breadth of this role and proximity to strategic business decisions make this opportunity the perfect training ground for future General Counsel/Head of Legal ambitions.
