Job Description

ACCEL Law Group, located in the heart of West Hartford Center, is a thriving law firm with a national insurance transactional and regulatory practice.

Our Background
ACCEL is a law firm that was created to allow attorneys to do sophisticated work but without all the stuffiness and rigidity found in most large law firms. The founders of ACCEL left the “big law” environment in 2014 with the goal of providing value to our clients and to everyone on our team. We are a firm that embraces the need to balance work and family. We understand that value is not measured just by the number of hours billed or time spent in the office.

What We Do
ACCEL Law Group serves businesses in key segments of the insurance industry, including start-up companies, insurtechs, insurance agencies and insurance companies, and private-equity backed companies. From our offices in Central Connecticut, ACCEL advises market leaders across the country.

Our services range from providing regulatory advice and strategic counseling on state insurance laws to buying and selling companies in M&A transactions. Our practice provides ACCEL team members with the rare opportunity to work side-by-side with both highly sophisticated billion-dollar companies and smaller entrepreneurs.

However, regardless of the client, the projects we work on are never faceless. Whether we represent a buyer or seller in an M&A transaction, or advise on an ongoing business issue, we work directly with client executives, owners, and decision makers.

The client transactions we work on generally range from a few million to over $300 million, and in 2021, we completed 50+ transactions worth more than $1 billion in the aggregate.

About the Opportunity
This is a great opportunity for motivated individuals looking for a rewarding professional environment and career path. You will work directly with our clients on regulatory research and state regulatory filings on various topics, including state sales practices, excess & surplus lines and sponsored insurance programs. You will also work with the attorneys in the law firm and assist them on various transactional matters.

Don’t worry if insurance regulation and acquisitions are foreign to you. We can teach you all that you need, but there are a few key traits you should bring to ACCEL:

What You Can Offer To ACCEL

  • 1+ years of experience in insurance, corporate/business or transactional work in either a law firm or corporate legal department
  • Strong project management and organizational skills
  • Excellent communication, presentation and interpersonal skills
  • Ability to work well both independently and on a team

If you are committed to helping us help our clients, we’d love to have you apply even if you feel unsure about whether you meet every single requirement in this posting. Again, we’re more interested in people that want to make a difference than those who simply check all the boxes.

If you think you’d be a great fit for this role, please use the form below to let us know.

What ACCEL Can Offer To You

  • Competitive salary and bonus opportunity
  • 401(K) contributions and profit sharing
  • Medical, Dental, & Vision plans
  • Flexible Work Arrangements
  • Flexible Time Off
  • Paid Family Leave
  • Laptop computer to allow for flexible work arrangements

But really, ACCEL Can Also Offer You

  • A sophisticated and challenging work environment
  • A team that is committed to its clients but also to each other
  • A progressive work environment
  • A law firm career that doesn’t feel like you’re at a big law firm
