At this Commercial Real Estate Trust, we believe retail should be anything but typical.

And, more than anything, it’s about bringing people together. The Corporate Legal Department seeks to add an experienced, energetic Legal Contracts Manager to proactively support its commercial transaction activities and corporate contracts function.

  • Structure, draft, review, and negotiate different types of contracts (e.g., Master Service Agreements (MSAs), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Agreements, Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs), consulting agreements, licensing agreements, and event agreements) with minimal oversight.

  • Collaborate with internal and external business partners throughout the contracting process to minimize risk and ensure the company’s interests are protected.

  • Responsible for identifying, reviewing and summarizing legal, financial and business issues in standard and non-standard contracts.

  • Ensure that contracts are appropriately handled during mall divestitures or acquisitions.
