Republic Brands has engaged Major Lindsey & Africa on an exclusive basis to conduct a search for a Corporate Counsel to be located at its headquarters in Glenview, Illinois who will serve as an integral part of the legal team reporting directly to the company’s General Counsel (who serves as a member of Republic Brands’ senior executive team). The Corporate Counsel will perform a wide breadth of legal functions to support the company’s operations and serve as a critical resource to the General Counsel. General corporate legal experience as well as some broad familiarity with sophisticated intellectual property related matters is desirable.
Republic Brands is a middle market, family-owned, private holding company with significant holdings and affiliations in North America and Europe. For the last 50 years, Republic Brands has worked hard to build a portfolio of Roll Your Own (“RYO”) tobacco products and iconic brands that consumers desire and its loyal customers enjoy re-selling on its behalf. Going forward, the company is extremely well positioned to capture increased market share in the growing marketplace of legal cannabinoids and experience additional organic growth in the Make Your Own (“MYO”) products segment.
For this role, which will be located in Glenview, Illinois, we are seeking candidates who have approximately three to five (3-5) years of legal experience in a law firm or corporate environment. The ideal candidate will have a well-rounded corporate legal background, and some broad familiarity with other areas of the law specifically including intellectual property.
