Every policy or contract that we draft; every lawsuit that we file or defend against; every letter we send; and all the legal advice that we give to our partners, must always be done with our players' interests in mind.

As an IP Enforcement Paralegal, reporting to the Director and Associate General Counsel responsible for IP Enforcement, you will be the primary point person on the Legal Team for daily IP enforcement work.

• Prepare reports on IP enforcement activity and progress for partners

Required Qualifications:
• 2+ years of experience sending DMCA and other types of take-down notices using popular platform tools (e.g., YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or Redbubble)
• Experience drafting or revising cease-and-desist letters
• Experience working with attorneys and outside vendors on IP enforcement matters
• Experience with copyright and trademark laws
• Proficient in project management tools (e.g., AirTable, Jira, or MSFT Excel) and processes

Desired Qualifications:
• Familiarity with Riot's IP
• Experience with IP enforcement work for a global brand/IP

For this role, you'll find success through craft expertise, a collaborative spirit, and choices that focus on your fellow Rioters, who are the customers of your work. Being a dedicated fan of games is not necessary for this position!
