Incredible teams doing exceptional work, every day
The Audit, Compliance and Legal & Risk group supports First Republic’s business objectives by systematically improving the effectiveness of its risk management, control and governance processes. We own and administer these processes while educating our colleagues to best support them. Our mission is to promote a culture of compliance and to be the best partner we can to our business stakeholders.
Against this backdrop and in response to the steady growth of its loan book and office facilities, FRB is looking to hire a seasoned Real Estate & Facilities Counsel to be based in San Francisco. S/he will join an existing legal team that supports all commercial, consumer and professional lending activity nationwide (with a particular emphasis on the Bank’s facilities and real estate lending), and will also provide legal assistance on other corporate matters such as contract negotiations, and the Bank's vendor management program. It is an exciting opportunity for a seasoned practitioner (whether currently in-house or in private practice) to broaden her/his skill set in a dynamic, growth company.
The successful candidate will act as a primary legal advisor on facilities matters throughout the U.S. as well as deals across all commercial real estate leasing activity. S/he will work closely with the Bank’s head of facilities as well as client-facing Relationship Managers to assist with facilities and loan transactions from origination/LOI through closing and will also interact with other FRB San Francisco-based attorneys to assist on broader corporate legal matters, as appropriate.
