New Albany, OH
Mac Murray & Shuster is not your average law firm and we do things a little differently around here. We’re focused on finding talented individuals that share our values. And because we know professional paths can cross at the most unexpected times, it’s never about simply filling an open position. If you’re the right fit, there’s an opportunity for you here.
We’re a team of passionate attorneys who care deeply about protecting consumers and facilitating commercial success by making sure businesses – from entrepreneurial startups to Fortune 100s – know how to comply with federal and state consumer protection and privacy laws. And when they come to us facing a class action lawsuit or regulatory enforcement action, first we’ll defend them. And then, we’ll show them how to achieve their business goals while investing in compliance for the future.
We are seeking a rising star Privacy Attorney looking for a real opportunity to hone your skills and be the best-of-the-best in your craft. You’re creative, inquisitive, and want to be on the forefront of emerging privacy and data security issues. In your free time you keep up with current trends in technology, hot-button privacy issues, and the latest data breaches. You can quote the CCPA and have submitted a data subject request to a business just out of curiosity.
You’re a team player who doesn’t hesitate to roll up your sleeves and dive in. You love a new challenge and aren’t afraid to push yourself outside of your comfort zone – especially if it’s to support a client. You think before acting, learn from your mistakes, and rarely make the same one twice. You respect the contributions of non-attorney staff in working toward success for both your clients and you.
Finally, you know that all work and no-play create burned-out lawyers. You do what it takes to get the job done, but make sure to take time to refresh and recharge for your next challenge. You seek a firm that puts work-life balance into practice and treats people as people rather than billing automatons.
Pay is based on experience.
• Juris Doctor degree
• 2-4 years of experience focused primarily on privacy and data security issues
• Currently licensed to practice law in good standing
• CIPP/US or CIPP/E credentials are a plus
