Legal Advantage LLC is a leading provider of cost-effective legal services to intellectual property attorneys, patent agents, paralegals, and individual inventors. This position is a perfect opportunity for a salesperson with a strong work ethic who is driven by the financial rewards of a salary plus commission pay structure. This position will report to the Vice President of Business Development and CEO and has an immediate earning potential of $100k first year (monthly base salary plus commissions) with merit increases based on performance, crossing $160K in second year.

Position: The territory for this position is the Washington DC & NYC/NJ regions. This position is a “hunter / gatherer” role where the ideal candidate will be expected to maintain and grow an existing book of business as well as further expand that business establishing and closing new clients. Services sold will have a short sales cycle (on average between 1 – 3 weeks) and the average price point per sale is $1 - $10K. The typical Legal Advantage LLC client is a top-level attorney within the IP Corporate legal departments, and Am Law 100 & 200 firms thus the candidate hired for this position must be able to demonstrate an ability to close a client within 15 minutes on a face-to-face meeting. It is expected that the hired candidate will be able to make an average of 4 new sales per week. This candidate will be expected to collaborate daily with account services representatives across the US and Canada in the Legal Advantage offices as well as work with the operations and accounting teams to ensure optimal client satisfaction. Frequent reporting and updates to the CRM system will be expected.

To be effective in this position, s/he must be articulate with stellar communication skills (both written and verbal) and must represent the company in a professional manner at all times.
