Blue Dot Advocates is seeking an exceptional candidate to coordinate our team, administer our systems, and keep our office and operations running smoothly. With lawyers in Boulder and Denver, Blue Dot Advocates is a leading boutique law firm focused on impact investing and social enterprise. In the last two years, our lawyers have worked with clients operating in 6 of 7 continents (we’re waiting on Antarctica) and have assisted with impact capital transactions totaling over $100 million in the aggregate. Our social enterprise practice includes assisting clients with structuring and operating both for-profit and non-profit companies, as well as advising various institutions and investors that are committed to investing in such companies.
We are particularly interested in supporting ventures that are targeting issues related to extreme poverty, renewable energy, and sustainable development. In addition, we are developing a network of lawyers and specialists with whom we can collaborate to provide the highest quality legal services at affordable prices to international social enterprises and impact investors. Our primary goal is to facilitate the flow of investment capital to financially scalable social enterprises operating in the developing world.

You will have broad responsibilities and wear many hats, working on a range of things from scheduling to travel, engaging new clients to sending out invoices, assisting with legal projects to filing and data entry, stocking the office with supplies to adding to our knowledge base – all while keep operations lean and organized. As our firm grows, you will serve as a key coordinator for our entire team, fostering communication, organizing team-building events and liaising regularly with our virtual team based in Denver, San Francisco and beyond. Experience as a legal assistant or paralegal (e.g. the ability to draft basic corporate and/or contractual documents, handle governmental filings, perform basic legal research with minimal supervision) is a plus.
Requirements for this position are as follows:
- Reliable and responsive to a fault
- Excellent organizational and project management skills
- Tech savvy: comfortable working with cloud-based applications (Gmail, FreshBooks, etc.) and demonstrated ability to master new technology quickly
- Extraordinary attention to detail and organization

- Affinity for spreadsheets and business models (read: Excel nerd)
- Work experience in a law firm and/or corporate in-house legal department
This position will be based in Boulder. All candidates must be willing to make a 2 to 3 year minimum commitment to our firm. We will offer a competitive salary, medical and benefits, and coverage for mobile phone charges. Our office in downtown Boulder includes free parking, a bike rack, full kitchen and easy access to downtown and the Pearl Street Mall.
