The Oregon State Bar Professional Liability Fund (PLF) is hiring a full-time general counsel to provide expert legal and strategic advice to management on the legal duties and responsibilities of the organization. The PLF is the mandatory provider of primary legal malpractice coverage for Oregon lawyers in private practice. The PLF also offers additional malpractice coverage for law firms above primary limits on an optional, underwritten basis. As the General Counsel, you will work closely with the CEO and management team to ensure compliance and mitigate unnecessary risks to protect the interests of the organization.

What We’re Looking For

The general counsel position entails a unique combination of breadth and depth, general and specific. In this role, you will spend significant time working independently on various legal and policy matters, while also providing high-level strategic advice to management from a broad perspective. Our ideal candidate enjoys parsing the nuances of policies and coverage plan language, but is equally comfortable analyzing and reporting about uncertain, future, and potentially abstract risks. Steady in a crisis, you are able to offer sound guidance for the good of the organization. Your general legal background, expertise on malpractice and coverage issues, and familiarity with the Oregon legal community enable you to think critically about and provide oversight on a wide range of matters that could impact the PLF.

If this sounds like you, we encourage you to apply. You will be joining a team of dedicated professionals in a supportive, affirming workplace.

What We Offer

We are pleased to state that the salary range for this position is $165,000-$190,000. We also offer an excellent benefits package, including participation in the Oregon PERS/OPSRP retirement program, health insurance, and other benefits.

This position is based at the PLF office in Tigard with a hybrid remote work setup and may involve some travel, primarily in Oregon.

Application Deadline: August 19, 2022
