Legal Job opening : Legal Counsel – Startup / Venture Capital Practice (US & Southeast Asia) at Stealth Startup

About Company

A stealth startup is a startup company that operates in stealth mode, i.e. that avoids public attention. This may be done to hide information from competitors, or — as part of a marketing strategy — to manage public image. The phenomenon is well known in the venture capital (VC) community. Normally a company would only operate in stealth mode for the first couple of years. As investors may have to disclose funding a stealth startup, their names are made public, but often only a general summary description is known about the company. “Most entrepreneurs say they are in stealth because they are worried about competitors stealing their ideas. This can be a risk if you have such a simple idea that just by hearing it, someone can replicate it.”

To be successful you will have:

  • high levels of motivation and initiative, ability to work independently and remotely
  • above average analytical skills; excellent contract drafting and writing skills
  • broad base of startup legal knowledge, and the willingness to extend out of one’s comfort zone in order to find good, practical answers for our clients
  • an entrepreneurial mindset — someone who is wired to develop new business models, improve existing ones, come up with innovative approaches to current challenges, and in general, to create and build; someone for whom doing things the “standard way” is not the default

Specific Requirements

  • Must be licensed to practice law, preferably in any of the following: California, New York or any other US state, England & Wales, Hong Kong, Malaysia or Singapore
  • Minimum 2-5 years of experience working at a startup, venture capital firm or law firm


  • Flexible workstyles (remote, onsite, full-time, part-time)
  • Opportunities for rapid advancement and career growth (including options to relocate to the Singapore and elsewhere in Southeast Asia)
  • Dynamic start-up environment
