Senior Manager, Senior Counsel - Privacy

About the Role:

The Capital One Legal Department is seeking an all-star attorney with a passion for data protection law and an interest in federal regulation.

The attorney in this position will join our enterprise privacy legal team, where you will help support our involvement in a variety of federal legislative and regulatory initiatives, as well as take on independent portfolios in areas like data breach notification, consumer privacy, and communications channels. Working closely with senior leadership in Legal and with business, compliance, and risk partners across Capital One's lines of business, you will coordinate internal resources and discussions on federal regulatory initiatives related to data protection. You will operate at the intersection of financial services and technology, and you will brainstorm, problem-solve, and innovate to assess and mitigate legal and regulatory risk in a challenging and evolving space.

We are looking for an attorney who is collaborative, inquisitive, and enthusiastic about privacy, technology, and the data ecosystem both inside and outside the company. You'll need strong analytical and organizational skills, great judgment, the ability to express complexity in simple terms to non-experts, and the ability to work effectively in a fast-paced environment. We want someone with an ownership mentality who nonetheless enjoys being part of a team, who can interact with and influence across departments and job levels, and who always brings a good sense of humor to the party.

Responsibilities likely to include:
  • Provide expert advice on existing privacy laws, including those governing data breach notification and use of communications channels.
  • Provide a central coordinating function for cross-enterprise involvement in federal regulatory initiatives that could impact data protection, such as proposed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau rulemaking.
  • Analyze and interpret new laws and regulations and assist in devising compliance methods that meet business goals and objectives.
  • Manage outside counsel regarding certain legal matters.

Basic Qualifications:
  • Juris Doctor from an accredited law school
  • Active member in good standing of at least one state bar
  • At least 5 years of experience in a law firm environment, at a government agency, or as in-house counsel

Preferred Qualifications:
  • A background in data security law or data privacy law, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act, is a plus but is not required
