According to a job posting on LinkedIn, The Walt Disney Company is looking to hire a transaction lawyer to investigate potential in emerging technologies such as NFTs, while working on a “accelerated and aggressive timeframe.”

The employee would “work with business teams as they create new global emerging technology projects” in other areas like the metaverse and decentralized banking, according to the job posting.

A job posting stated: “Assist in performing due diligence for NFT, blockchain, third party marketplace and cloud provider projects, and negotiating and drafting complex agreements for those projects.”

Transaction lawyers typically examine merger and acquisition agreements as well as other intricate commercial transactions.

The article was posted on LinkedIn early on Saturday. Disney CEO Bob Chapek stated at the D23 Expo fan conference on September 10 that the firm is investigating and creating plans for the metaverse, according to Deadline. A longtime Apple executive was hired by the Mickey Mouse conglomerate in June to serve as vice president of “Next Generation Storytelling Creative Experiences,” and the following month, a consumer experiences executive was promoted to executive vice president of “Next Generation Storytelling & Consumer Experiences.”

The Walt & Mickey “Partners” NFT was released on the VeVe app for iOS and Android last year.

The new attorney will be employed by the Walt Disney Company’s legal division in the corporate transaction unit. They must have at least five years of management and leadership experience in complex corporate transactions, preferably at a major international law firm with a reputable corporate practice.
