Legal and Compliance

BlackRock’s Legal and Compliance (L&C) department works with business teams to develop investment management products and business solutions that comply with the numerous legal and regulatory requirements to which BlackRock and its products are subject.  Legal and Compliance is responsible for, among other things, negotiating agreements with investors, intermediaries and service providers; providing ongoing legal advice to business regarding new and existing products and strategies; overseeing regulatory matters; coordinating litigation and legal proceedings; establishing legal and compliance policies and procedures that meet applicable regulatory requirements and testing the operative effectiveness of those policies and procedures and conducting training. 

Role Description

We are searching for an attorney to specialize in real estate investment management to support BlackRock in building these solutions for our clients.  We expect the role to be involved with all aspects of real estate investment management in the US including real estate transactions (purchases, sales, joint ventures, development, and financings for borrowers and lenders), fund formation, fund marketing, leasing, vendor engagement, litigation, risk management, and corporate governance.  The attorney would also be expected to provide fund formation support for BlackRock’s Infrastructure Debt business, BlackRock’s corporate facilities department and, as needed, general support for BlackRock’s broader illiquid alternatives business, which manages almost $100 billion in illiquid mandates across asset classes.

Requires a J.D. with superior academic credentials from a nationally-recognized law school, and four to eight years’ experience as a lawyer in the real estate, asset management or fund formation group within a major law firm or the legal department of an investment management firm.  Either real estate transactions or real estate fund formation experience is required (as well as a desire to learn the other area).  Ideal candidates would have experience in both fields. Exposure to taxation of REITs and tax-exempt investors, the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and the other U.S. and non-U.S. laws impacting privately offered funds would be helpful.

Must have strong organizational skills and ability to manage multiple time sensitive matters in a demanding, fast-paced and fluid environment.  The candidate must have the ability to coordinate complex projects involving different business and support groups and to assist the business in implementing solutions across the broad range of BlackRock products and services.

Having a business and solution-oriented approach to interacting and working with clients is critical for this role.

Exceptional analytical, written and oral communication and relationship-building skills required, as is a proven track record working as a member of a team.  The candidate must have a strong ability to solve problems in a practical manner and to communicate complex concepts in an understandable way.

The candidate should be capable of overseeing work done by external counsel.

Our benefits
To help you stay energized, engaged and inspired, we offer a wide range of benefits including a strong retirement plan, tuition reimbursement, comprehensive healthcare, support for working parents and Flexible Time Off (FTO) so you can relax, recharge and be there for the people you care about.

Our hybrid work pilot

BlackRock’s current hybrid work pilot is designed to help you experience the best of both worlds: the opportunity to connect with colleagues in person and the flexibility to work remotely, with greater time to focus on what’s important to you. In line with local health guidance and regulations, employees are generally expected to work 3 days in the office and 2 days from home (on average) each week. For some business groups, more time may be required in the office, while greater flexibility may be in place for others. Our “One BlackRock” culture means you’ll be supported to collaborate with your new colleagues while bringing your full self to work – wherever you are.

The health, safety and well-being of our people will always be our top priorities; we will continue to monitor local conditions and health advisories in making decisions about our work environments.

About BlackRock

At BlackRock, we are all connected by one mission: to help more and more people experience financial well-being.  Our clients, and the people they serve, are saving for retirement, paying for their children’s educations, buying homes and starting businesses. Their investments also help to strengthen the global economy: support businesses small and large; finance infrastructure projects that connect and power cities; and facilitate innovations that drive progress.

This mission would not be possible without our smartest investment – the one we make in our employees. It’s why we’re dedicated to creating an environment where our colleagues feel welcomed, valued and supported with networks, benefits and development opportunities to help them thrive.
