General Counsel

Amber Livingston

At Paylocity, I oversee our legal function and lead the company’s legal initiatives. My job is to anticipate potential issues before they become actual issues so that Paylocity can focus on doing what it does best — delivering the highest quality technology and service to our clients.

Before I joined Paylocity, I was the Corporate and Securities Counsel at Motorola Solutions, and I started my career as a corporate and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) attorney at Skadden in Chicago.

I grew up in a small town in South Carolina and moved to Atlanta for college. I received a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Emory University and a law degree from Northwestern Law. When I’m not tackling legal matters for Paylocity, you can find my husband and me chasing after our two busy toddlers or checking out a new restaurant in Chicago (pre-COVID of course!).

“One of the reasons I was drawn to Paylocity is the community culture. Everyone is willing to come together, roll up their sleeves and create solutions to problems that are not necessarily their direct problem. Our customers should rest easy knowing there are 3,000+ minds at work creating the most thoughtful HR software solutions.”
