Quarterhill - Assistant General Counsel - Toronto
- 4+ years experience
- Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Quarterhill is a growth-oriented company in the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) industry. The company is headquartered in Toronto, Ontario and Dallas, Texas with subsidiaries across Canada, the US and Europe. With a strategy of pursuing investments that capitalize on attractive market trends in ITS, the company is growing through strategic acquisitions with a view to becoming a global leader in the sector. Quarterhill is a Canadian public company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (QTRH).
Due to their continued growth, Quarterhill is seeking to add a mid-level Corporate/ Securities lawyer to join their team in downtown Toronto. Although the position is based out of Toronto, there is flexibility to work remotely and, therefore, outside of Toronto as well. Reporting to the SVP, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary, this person will lead the company on a wide range of transactional, commercial and general corporate matters. Responsibilities will include but are not limited to: negotiating and drafting a variety of contracts; advising on M&A, corporate finance and continuous disclosure; advising the Executive Team and Board on legal matters generally including employment, commercial matters, governance, regulatory and litigation management; assisting on due diligence on acquisition targets; and managing external counsel.
The ideal candidate will have 4+ years of experience in corporate finance, M&A and/or securities from either a reputable law firm or in a public company setting. Quarterhill is seeking a motivated individual who is a skilled “deal lawyer” but can also appropriately balance legal risk with business objectives and understand the needs of key stakeholders. This is an excellent opportunity for a business minded lawyer who is seeking to maintain a sophisticated and dynamic practice, but in a setting that offers more balance and flexibility.
If you possess the requisite skill-set, please contact in complete confidence Danya Cohen or Adam Lepofsky (both Canadian qualified lawyers) at RainMaker Group.
