    About the Job

    As Associate Legal Counsel at Google, you will work on the most exciting legal issues as disruptive technological innovations require creative and proactive legal guidance.

    You are collaborative -- ready to partner in initiatives that influence all aspects of the business and work with Googlers from all over the company and the world.

    As an integrated part of the team, you will proactively assess legal risks and advise on products that will not only move information into the 21st century, but move information law forward as well.

    As part of the Google regional Legal team, you will support a range of products and business areas within Google and will be working for clients in Google offices throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) and the United States.

    You will be deeply involved and assist in product launches within the region and the management of litigation matters, demonstrating excellent attention to detail and organizational skills, a deep understanding of Google's business, and the ability to

    think quickly, practically, and innovatively.

    20th century laws don't always solve 21st century problems, and Google Legal crafts innovative approaches for handling some of the toughest legal challenges of the information age.

    Whether you're a patent attorney, an intellectual property expert or an engineer headed to law school, Google Legal lets you take on unanswered legal quandaries and create new precedents.

    Our innovative services raise challenging questions that demand creative and practical answers.

    We provide those answers by working at the crossroads of the law and new technology, helping Google build innovative and important products for users around the world.
