Associate General Counsel

Hudson River Trading is a quantitative trading and technology firm based in downtown Manhattan. We are currently seeking a bright and motivated lawyer to join our team. At HRT we pride ourselves on having created a work environment that comfortably blends the laid back feeling of a dot-com, the imagination of a startup, the excitement of a trading floor and the intellectual stimulation of a think tank.

This includes but is not limited to securities regulation, real estate, intellectual property, employment-related matters and contract negotiation. This person will be reporting directly to General Counsel.

Job duties will include:

  • Contract drafting and negotiation 
  • Legal research and advising the general counsel and management
  • Supervising outside counsel


  • 4-7 years of experience
  • Corporate law attorney 
  • Experience with cash equities is a plus
