The Riot Legal team has the responsibility to always provide the highest quality legal services that fully align with Riot’s company mission of putting players first. Figuring out what’s “best for the company” always begins with thinking about what’s “best for players.” Every policy or contract that we draft; every lawsuit that we file or defend against; every letter we send; and all the legal advice that we give to our partners, must always be done with our players’ interests in mind.

Riot is now creating more content than ever before. We transformed from a one-game company to a studio with multiple games. As a Senior IP Administrator, reporting to the Head of Legal for Games and IP, you will ensure our trademark portfolio helps Riot get to the next level.
