Ace Hardware / Corporate Counsel

Ace Hardware (The Helpful Place!) has retained Evers Legal to recruit a Corporate Counsel for a direct hire generalist role with promising career path potential. Supporting daily operations, you will learn the business, interface with internal clients routinely, and work in a collaborate team environment.

Specific “to dos” of the job entail the full range of commercial contracts negotiating and drafting, such as supplier/vendor agreements, real estate, NDAs, marketing, media… and much more.

The winning candidate will have 5 – 8 years of legal experience. Although we tend to favor candidates with some in-house experience, this opportunity is also open to straight-from-law-firm candidates. The critical criteria frankly is culture fit… we want the ego-free attorney who plays well with others, including their colleagues in the law department. Commercial/transactional experience highly preferred. Candidates with primarily litigation oriented backgrounds are unlikely to move forward.

Position location is Ace Hardware headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois. Relocation not anticipated. Local candidates preferred. Non-local candidates willing to move at his/her own cost may be considered.
