Public Company Counsel

O'Melveny & Myers LLP
Posted Nov 13
Full Time
Newport Beach, California

O’Melveny is seeking an experienced associate or counsel with more than five years of prior relevant experience to join the Public Company Advisory group within its Capital Markets practice. Candidates should have deep experience advising public companies on a variety of securities law compliance, disclosure and corporate governance matters. This person will work closely with other members of the Public Company Advisory group but must be able to independently manage day-to-day securities law counseling, SEC reporting and corporate governance matters for our growing public company client base. Our public company clients span diverse industries—from technology to healthcare/life sciences to real estate/REITs to retail/consumer services—and range from decades-old Fortune 500 public companies to newly-public emerging growth companies and smaller reporting companies. There will also be opportunities to work on the transactional elements of the practice for our public company clients, including capital markets offerings.

Superior academic credentials and strong communication skills are required, and the ideal candidate will have a deep understanding of the securities laws and direct experience in public company compliance and corporate governance. This position offers a good opportunity for individuals with in-house securities/corporate governance experience to return to a law firm, and those who are currently at a law firm to join a busy and growing Public Company Advisory group.

The salary range in Newport Beach for this role is $370,000 - $415,000 and represents the firm’s good faith minimum and maximum range for this role at the time of posting. The actual compensation offered to a candidate will be dependent on a variety of factors including, but not limited to, the candidate’s experience, qualifications, and location.
