The Attorney will also work with the Team Leader of the Strategic & Commercial Relationships Team, other members of the Legal & Compliance department and with executives in various business and competency units across the company to define corporate standards and create/maintain contract templates that align with SEI's risk and governance structures, contractual commitments and regulatory compliance obligations.
