Counsel – Employment & Litigation (Sioux Falls, SD)

At POET, our mission is to be good stewards of the Earth by efficiently converting renewable resources to energy and other valuable goods.  Our drive and commitment to change the world has enabled us to become the largest producer and marketer of biofuels. Over the last 30 years, we’ve grown from a single bioprocessing facility in Scotland, South Dakota to the world’s largest producer of ethanol and co-products, with 28 bioprocessing facilities across the Midwest.  And we’re using that same innovative spirit to begin producing ethanol from plant materials other than grain.  Our integrated business model combines cutting-edge technology development at our laboratories and pilot-scale facility with expertise in construction, operations management, marketing, logistics solutions, communications and policy leadership, all of which enable us to be a unique leader in the renewable economy. ABOUT POET'S LEGAL TEAMPOET’s legal team manages the legal needs of POET and all of its affiliates, including the 28 bioprocessing facilities.  From regulatory work to mergers and acquisitions, contracts to intellectual property, and litigation to employment, we work hand-in-glove with our POET business partners to know the law and our businesses, assess and mitigate risk, think strategically, and provide the best and most practical guidance for our team members and growing company. JOB SUMMARYYou will work independently and with POET’s Senior Counsel for Employment and Litigation on a range of matters.  You will work with our human resources team—which we call our CARE Team—on issues ranging from hiring to performance management to benefits and beyond.  On the employment litigation side, you will help prepare POET’s responses to complaints received from the EEOC, OSHA and other governmental agencies and help manage the defense of any claims for wrongful termination and enforcement of our restrictive covenants.  On the non-employment litigation side, you will work on matters ranging from claims for trade secret misappropriation to breach of contract and personal injury.   We perform this work internally, whenever feasible.  Other times, we work with outside counsel.  In those events, we work closely with outside counsel to formulate and drive case strategy and manage budgets and outside use of our business partners’ internal resources.  We also give practical trainings to our business partners.  Above all, we are business partners with a unique skill set and perspective.  WHAT WE NEEDPOET’s Counsel – Employment and Litigation will have superior legal abilities and potential, excellent people and communication skills, and a keen and versatile intellect.  Although specific subject-matter experience is important, creativity, practicality, self-awareness, and communication style are of equal importance.  Essential job functions include:
