We take pride in working for a company with a clear mission (“to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”). Google’s innovative services raise complex legal questions that demand creative and practical answers. We work at the crossroads of new technologies and existing laws to provide those answers, helping Google build innovative and essential products for our users around the world.

The Litigation team at Google is dedicated to advising Google on a wide variety of complex legal matters that pose litigation risk to our products and businesses. We manage litigation and pre-litigation disputes around the world, including intellectual property, privacy, antitrust, content, consumer, and class action litigation.

We strive to think proactively and to advance Google’s position and interests with respect to legal policy based on the litigation risks that we anticipate, working to move our products – and the law – forward.

In this role, you will be responsible for leading a team of attorneys managing and supporting litigation and pre-litigation disputes for Google outside of the United States, with a focus on cross-border litigation in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).

We provide those answers by working at the crossroads of the law and new technology, helping Google build innovative and important products for users around the world.

  • Work closely with international leadership across legal, product, engineering, and business teams to provide counseling on litigation and pre-litigation disputes
  • Serve as the main point of contact for leadership on legal issues related to major cross-border litigation outside of the United States, such as intellectual property, privacy, antitrust, content, consumer, and class action litigation, and coordinate work across the Legal team according to leadership’s priorities
