Now Hiring: International Tax Lawyers

We’re hiring international tax lawyers.

Maybe that’s you.

Naval Ravikant (among many other people) emphasizes how important picking the right people to work with is for you to be successful. Maybe we are the right people for you.

Picking the right people is important for us too. Same reason.

Here’s how we’re doing that.

I’ve long admired the hiring approach taken by Latacora. I’ve used bits and pieces of their approach in the past, but now I’m going to expand it a lot.

The process

If you’re interested in working with us, ping me an email. You will get a series of challenge research questions to work on.

These are simplified versions of real life questions we have answered for clients. The challenges can be solved in a few hours.

How long you take is up to you. You can move as quickly or slowly as you want. There’s no time constraint and I know you probably have a day job right now as well as all of the other stuff in life. And you can bail out at any time. No harm in that. Maybe the timing isn’t right.

I will read your answers personally and score them. You will see my comments and I will be happy to talk to you, too.

If things go well with the challenge questions, you will get an offer to work on a couple of real-time production research/drafting problems we are working on. You will be paid for this work. We will talk frequently during this process to get a sense of how we get along. You are welcome to visit us in Pasadena and use a spare office if you want to work that way.

At the end of real-world projects you will either get a job offer or not. The decision will be made fast. For full-time positions, the final decision will be made after you fly out to Pasadena and meet with everyone on the team.

Another thing, unrelated to hiring. Part of the magic of participating in the challenge questions is that we will then know each other. You will then be part of my informal network of people I talk to about stuff. I have a bunch of people I talk to or email. Some people I talk to a lot, others just once or twice a year. These are informal masterminds on technical tax problems, the problems of running a professional practice, life, and just fun. All the best things in life happened to me because I met someone new. That’s why I’m doing this. I may regret it. 🙂

If you’re interested, the next step is to email me and get the first challenge question.
