Overtime is the leading brand for the next generation of sports fans. As both a publisher and an influencer, we’ve built the inclusive world of sports we all wish was the norm by giving a platform to our community to be seen AND heard. We produce original content across YouTube, Snapchat and IGTV, as well as highly engaging shortform content on Instagram and TikTok.

Based in NYC, Overtime is funded by top VC firms, industry leaders, and athletes, including Andreessen Horowitz, Spark Capital, Sapphire Sport, Bezos Expeditions (the personal investment company of Jeff Bezos), Micromanagement Ventures (the family of the late David Stern), Black Capital, Morgan Stanley Counterpoint Global, Blackstone Strategic Partners, PROOF, Gaingels, Alexis Ohanian, Drake, and 30+ NBA stars including Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant.

Overtime is seeking a forward-thinking and agile team player to take on the role of Legal Counsel. The ideal candidate has a background in corporate and commercial law, with 3+ years of total experience gained at a law firm and/or professional sports league, team, or agency. A combination of law firm and in-house experience is also acceptable. The ideal skill set would include experience in commercial contracts and also experience in media and advertising-related transactional matters. A sports transactional background is a plus but is not required.

This position will report to the VP, Legal & Business Affairs and will provide support to the legal team by assisting with drafting, reviewing and negotiating a broad range of contracts to help deliver value across the organization. This role is “hands-on” and involves a broad and diverse set of in-house corporate and commercial transactional responsibilities, so an ability to learn and adapt quickly is a must.

What you'll do:

The candidate will assist the VP, Legal & Business Affairs with the following:

  • preparing, negotiating, and reviewing agreements with advertising agencies and brands, service providers and vendors, consulting agreements, licensing arrangements, sponsorship agreements, talent agreements, and NDAs, among other commercial contracts
  • intellectual property, data privacy, employment, corporate governance, and compliance matters
  • facilitating the long-term business strategy for the company
  • providing legal guidance and practical advice across the organization in the evaluation and prevention of company exposure
  • other general in-house legal work and special projects on an as-needed basis

Who you are:

  • 3+ years of relevant legal experience, including at least 1-2 years at a law firm or relevant in-house experience at a media or entertainment company
  • You have significant experience with contract review and transactional work; experience with media and advertising-related transactional work (contract negotiation with advertisers, talent, licensees, etc.) is a plus 
  • An ideal candidate will have exposure to other areas of law, such as employment, intellectual property, and data privacy
  • You have sound judgment; you know how to resolve complicated matters while maintaining integrity and confidentiality
  • You have a strong ability to turn legalese into language that everyone understands and believes in
  • You have excellent communication and collaboration skills, holding yourself and others accountable with kindness and humility
  • Ability to work effectively, collaborate cross-functionally, think practically, and be solution-oriented
  • Highly organized, with strong attention to detail, with the ability to prioritize and manage multiple projects and deadlines simultaneously
  • You have a J.D. and bar admission (and in good standing) in New York, Georgia, or California
