The Presidio Trust is seeking an Assistant General Counsel. An unusual federal agency, the Presidio Trust runs the only national park site that must earn all our own revenue. Each year we earn in excess of $100 million by leasing over 700 former military buildings as homes and workspaces. We then invest that money into our historic forest, dunes, streams, trails and designed landscapes, into our hundreds of historic buildings, into our infrastructure, into visitor sites and programs, and into our people, to make this magnificent place come alive for our park visitors.
The Assistant General Counsel role provides legal services and support as assigned in a broad variety of areas practiced by the General Counsel’s office, including, but not limited to: (a) federal statutory and regulatory interpretation, analysis and guidance; (b) administrative law and rule-making; (c) real property leasing and general contracting transactions; (d) tort claims and litigation; (e) ethics and labor & employment; (g) land use and environmental compliance; and (f) other miscellaneous legal, policy and administrative matters. This is a junior attorney position supporting the General Counsel and other more senior attorneys in the office, and ideal for a candidate interested in developing a general legal practice in a federal agency.
Our ideal candidate is a legal professional who has 2-5 years of practical experience, is intellectually curious, socially dexterous, consistently collaborative, self-reflective on DEIA issues and is relentlessly accountable to the team and the Trust.
This is a full-time position with benefits and a starting pay range of $120,229 to $142,683. The starting base salary is dependent on the experience and qualifications of the candidate. Applications received by September 1, 2023 will receive first consideration.
