This attorney must be currently Illinois bar admitted (or eligible to waive into it), have 8-10+ years of experience, much of which should be in-house, and consumer packaged goods (CPG), general corporate (e.g., due diligence on acquisitions) and management (of a team and outside counsel) experience. The preferred candidate will be working (or have worked) at a manufacturing company and have strong intellectual property (trademark, copyright and/or patent, IP and software licenses, social and digital media), regulatory compliance and enforcement in packaging, labeling and transportation, contracts (manufacturing, marketing, sales, distribution, supply chain, transportation and leases) and international law experience.

This is a great opportunity to head the legal department of a well-established and highly regarded publicly traded company.
