About the Office of Legal Obligations. The Office of Legal Obligations is a firmwide, global initiative to document JPMC’s legal obligations arising from material laws, rules, and regulations and connect those obligations to policies, procedures, and/or other documentation. The OLO Legal team supports this initiative by overseeing Legal’s effort to build the inventory of material laws, rules, and regulations that impact the firm; to draft business friendly descriptions of the legal obligations that arise from those laws, rules, and regulations; and to support the ongoing efforts of the business and our functional partners as they link those legal obligations to the control documentation that helps JPMC ensure compliance.
The ideal candidate will join a quality assurance team of lawyers and other professionals that evaluate the completeness, accuracy, and consistency of the OLO’s library of legal obligations, as well as JPMC’s efforts to monitor for legal and regulatory developments that affect those obligations.
For the OLO, JPMC requires experienced individuals with strong legal and regulatory awareness and background, able to understand the risks to JPMC of non-compliance with its legal obligations. This role will require significant cross-functional collaboration, including with line of business lawyers and their counterparts in the firm’s corporate functions. It also will require regular engagement with external counsel. The environment is fast-paced, often requiring that issues be addressed quickly to ensure that the firm stays in compliance with the rapidly-evolving rules that apply to our highly regulated industry. The successful candidate must have strong analytical and collaborative skills, be able to work independently, and be a true "self-starter."
