We are looking for a self-assured and determined Chief Operating Officer (COO) to perform delegated operational responsibilities of our partners (in close cooperation with them), i.e.the organization and supervision of our administrative/accounting team, the recruitment of our lawyers, the management of our IT infrastructure and our facility, the organization of diverse marketing events, and the development of our business. The partners will provide the COO with sufficient staff and tools to ensure that he/she can perform his/her delegated responsibilities adequately. A more extended job description is set forth below. 

1. Human Resources

  • Take responsibility over recruitment and review of our administrative/accounting staff members.

  • Develop and implement standard operating procedures for the functioning of our administrative/accounting support.

  • Coordinate the bi-annual review process of our lawyers.

  • Organize recruitment events.

  • Benchmark the legal market to ensure that our compensation package remains competitive.

  • Manage our alumni network.
     

2. IT infrastructure

  • Organize and supervise the procurement of our IT needs.

  • Manage the follow-up of software and hardware problems with our external IT service provider.

5. Business Development

  • Proactive and reactive organization and implementation of business development activities.

  • Coordinate our submissions for the main international legal guides (Chambers, Legal500). 

We can think out of the box and are open to various profiles (with or without legal education), but managerial experience, a robust understanding of the legal profession, as well as marketing and business development skills will definitely be regarded as crucial assets.

We will provide our COO with an attractive remuneration package and will regard him/her as a cornerstone of our management team.  This position is in principle full-time, but we are open to discuss a 4/5 appointment and other flexible solutions.
