You report to the Chief Financial Officer and will be a key member of our team working closely with our Investment Partners and Director of Operations.
Your paralegal role consists of preparing and filing entity formation documents, creating and/or reviewing various legal documents, communication with investment closing participants, investor tracking, and post-investment work such as Form D and blue sky filings for private placements and Regulation D offerings, circulating executed agreements, and filing annual reports in states where entities are qualified to do business. During fundraising periods, work is required on legal agreements including offering documents, partnership agreements, subscription agreements, and fundraising promotional documents. You will also work on a variety of interesting projects related to investor relations, audit and tax, financial analysis, light accounting, insurance and compliance.
This is a unique career opportunity for an exceptional individual.

Our employees enjoy a competitive benefits package and a dynamic work environment in which they can build a long and successful career.
