Business Advisory Attorney

We currently seek to hire a Business Advisory Attorney. This is a cornerstone role for this firm.


You’ll be responsible for working directly with our clients to walk them through simple or complex business challenges. The job can be done remotely, either working from home or in one of our offices in Erie or Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


The focus of this job centers around producing timely results that are high quality and accurate. Benefiting from an analytical, inquiring and critical mind, this job requires imagination and strong problem solving skills, but with a strong technical orientation. The job requires an ability to deal with abstract concepts, systems and ideas and all of that in an organized and self-disciplined way. It also requires that serious consideration be given to all possibly related facts and potential problems. This job demands deep knowledge and expertise and to do it successfully depends on understanding detailed information. Intellectual confidence is important in this job and to do it well requires close, hands-on involvement, careful follow-up and very disciplined, and limited, delegation. This job is technically demanding and ‘strictly business’. Central to this job is the need to weigh all decisions carefully and thoroughly, based on expertise in order to avoid unpredictable risk. Getting the job done and getting it done right are the two, equal, drivers for this job, and that may create conflict.

Position Overview

We believe when you read this list of job characteristics, you be excited because what we’re looking for sounds exactly like what you’re looking for:

  • Working in a fast-paced environment while leading and controlling multiple projects simultaneously

  • Like you, we believe in structure, organization, and efficiency
  • We embrace big picture, strategic thinkers like you who are well thought and analytical
  • We’re OK with calculated risk-taking
  • And we’re also OK with blunt, candid and to-the-point communication style
  • The ability to work primarily singularly with little involvement from others, we won’t micromanage you
  • We’ll embrace you expressing your opinions and decisions
  • We love your orientation of preferring to do things yourself as opposed to risking others doing them incorrectly
  • Being a strong, direct, and fearless leader


  • Effectively communicate with clients, other counsel
  • Fast-paced environment with a focus on timely, correct results
  • Technical, intellectual focus
  • Great deal of attention devoted to getting results that are timely and accurate
  • Reserved and confident when supported by detailed information
  • Decisions are made based on careful understanding of all available information; detailed technical knowledge; expertise and serious considerations for all sides of the issue/problem
  • We love that you’ll take your time to make the right decision and that you cannot be pressured to make quick decisions
  • It’s great that you’re a little reserved because we’re all about accurate communication that reflects all sides of the issue
  • Demanding, critical and exacting
  • Needs opportunities to use/demonstrate ‘know how’ and expertise in finding creative solutions to problems, with relative freedom from organizational involvements
  • Your leadership style involves high expectations for subordinates and a high degree of review following each task
