About the job
As Corporate Counsel at Google, you work on the most exciting legal issues as disruptive technological innovations require creative and proactive legal guidance. You’re part of a whip-smart group of in-house lawyers and the projects and cases you take on challenge you to think big and differently. You are collaborative – ready to partner in initiatives that influence all aspects of the business and work with Googlers from all over the company. As an integrated part of the team, you proactively assess legal risks and advise on products that will not only move information into the 21st century, but move information law forward as well.
The Competition Compliance team has been established to effectively manage Google’s exposure to regulatory obligations, collusion, and monopolization risk, and to implement and oversee a more consistent, scalable, and comprehensive methodology that mitigates risks associated with existing competition-binding legal commitments. The team provides the business with the knowledge, tools, and support to effectively identify and mitigate antitrust risk and ensure that Google complies with its competition-related regulatory obligations. They work closely with the Office of Compliance and Integrity, Product teams, and Internal Audit.
In this role, you will work on a team dedicated to overseeing Google’s compliance with its legal and regulatory competition obligations. You’ll partner with other Legal, Product, and Compliance teams in designing and implementing competition compliance programs. You’ll translate legal standards into practical compliance guidelines and work with teams across Google to develop processes that help mitigate compliance risk.
