Google’s legal department is at the center of an information law revolution, and you’re at its core. As a Legal Assistant, you are a driving force behind the success of your Legal team, ready to roll up your sleeves to create and improve processes, maintain records, conduct legal research and coordinate communications across the team. As you closely support your team, you may find yourself working with multiple groups within the Legal Department, internal clients across Google, and external parties. You’re an independent thinker who isn’t afraid to ask questions, and you’re organized in a way that never overlooks the details.
As a Legal Assistant, you will support an open and accessible Internet by empowering smart decision-making through thoughtful, collaborative, and novel counsel. You’ll be working on a team of attorneys, contract managers, and legal assistants that support product areas covered by our Legal organization, including Ads, Cloud/Technical Infrastructure, Marketing, Commerce, Search, Geo, Assistant, and Payments.
Responsibilities include processing, reviewing, drafting, and discuss agreements, responding to internal requests and inquiries for legal guidance on a variety of matters, creating and maintaining trackers for legal documents and resources, and providing support for ad hoc legal projects.
