Ingevity is seeking a full-time Senior Counsel attorney to assist Ingevity’s law department, based in Ingevity’s North Charleston, SC headquarters. The Ingevity law department handles mergers and acquisitions, commercial transactions, intellectual property, litigation and compliance, as well as other specialties. The department works closely with Ingevity business and corporate colleagues to ensure that legal efforts align well and cost-effectively with Ingevity’s strategic goals.
The successful candidate must be able to work with complex business units across multiple geographic segments (US, Europe, Asia, South America), have a proven track record of cultivating strong relationships with key internal stakeholders as well as demonstrated ability to provide legal solutions and business oriented legal strategies.
The Senior Counsel will be responsible for assisting the law department with drafting, negotiating and reviewing contracts across a broad spectrum of activities, from complex multi-jurisdictional agreements to relatively standard commercial agreements, typically from inception through signature. The position requires “hands on” engagement, directly drafting and negotiating matters, with assistance of external counsel as reasonably required (for example, non-US jurisdiction, specialized subject matter, documentation complexity).
The Senior Counsel will also be responsible for providing guidance to corporate groups and businesses on a wide range of commercial matters and for implementing and managing internal procedures and controls to ensure effective review and management of commercial matters across the organization. The position is a full-time position and will report to the Deputy General Counsel.
