About the job

As Corporate Counsel at Google, you work on the most exciting legal issues as disruptive technological innovations require creative and proactive legal guidance. You're part of a whip-smart group of in-house lawyers and the projects and cases you take on challenge you to think big and differently. You are collaborative -- ready to partner in initiatives that influence all aspects of the business and work with Googlers from all over the company. As an integrated part of the team, you proactively assess legal risks and advise on products that will not only move information into the 21st century, but move information law forward as well.

Alphabet’s Regulatory Response, Investigations and Strategy team (ARRIS) addresses issues that are both high-risk (as defined by Alphabet’s Enterprise Risk Management model) and involve regulatory scrutiny, enforcement actions, and other proceedings like shareholder litigation, internal investigations, and data incidents, as well as other emerging risks across Alphabet and globally. That includes matters that relate to our people, our products, our users, legislators and society, and our ecosystem.

20th century laws don't always solve 21st century problems, and Google Legal crafts innovative approaches for working with some of the toughest legal challenges of the information age. Whether you're a patent attorney, an intellectual property expert or an engineer headed to law school, Google Legal lets you address unanswered legal quandaries and create new precedents. Our innovative services raise challenging questions that demand creative and practical answers. We provide those answers by working at the crossroads of the law and new technology, helping Google build innovative and important products for users around the world.

  • Manage significant investigations and incidents in EMEA.
  • Proactively evaluate potential emerging internal and external risk in EMEA.
  • Manage special projects designed to strategically address and increase Alphabet's resilience to potential risks.
