Junior Commercial Attorney

Axiom is hiring outstanding early-career commercial attorneys to join our Emerging Lawyer Program (ELP). Axiom is a recognized leader in the business of law and the fastest growing company in the legal industry, working with half of the Fortune 500.

ELP is a first-of-its-kind, two-year apprenticeship program for junior attorneys who want great in-house careers. In partnership with some of our largest clients, we designed this program to help build the skills that corporate legal teams seek when hiring in-house counsel, skills most junior attorneys don’t yet possess. The program includes rotations across a number of in-house departments within a global and international company, executive mentoring, and tailored professional development programs in the fields of business and law. Axiom’s mission is to transform the legal industry and the career opportunities available, particularly for early-career attorneys. This program is a whole new approach to launching a successful in-house career.

Axiom is seeking applications from attorneys with strong legal experience across multiple practice areas including Commercial Transactions, Compliance, and Technology Transactions.

The ideal candidate will have:

Excellent academic and law firm credentials
Active membership in the Washington, State Bar required, or the ability to waive in
A passion for providing truly great client service
2+ of experience either at a firm or in-house

The responsibilities for this role will include:

Drafting a wide variety of commercial contracts including but not limited to procurement, vendor agreements and customer/sales agreements
Working with and advising business clients directly, as well as providing guidance and practical solutions
The ability to thrive in a large, fast-paced environment with a high level of professionalism and outstanding business judgement

With over 1,200 (and growing) Axiomites based around the world, we seek to live up to the New York Times’ prediction that: “A more sweeping transformation may be on the horizon. And it may look a lot like Axiom”.

Our company is ranked #1 in business of law, innovation in corporate strategy and innovation in law firm efficiency by the Financial Times, and our CEO Mark Harris is recognized by Forbes as a “name you need to know” and by the National Law Journal as a “top ten agent for change”.
