A rare opportunity for a team legal secretary with two years’+ experience to join a small US law firm, which is based in stunning offices in the heart of the City. You will be assisting just one partner and so this is an ideal opportunity a team legal secretary who is looking to take on more responsibility and PA duties in a 1:1 position. The partner deals exclusively with corporate work but he is happy to see a legal secretary with a background in either corporate law or commercial litigation – legal experience is essential. Responsibilities will include diary management (this will be a large part of the role); client liaison; digital dictation and document management; arranging meetings and managing appointments and organising all travel.

Although you will be fully trained on all internal systems and databases, you must have excellent general IT skills and a good understanding of Microsoft Word and Excel. It is also essential that you have at least two years’ experience as a team legal secretary from another leading US or UK law firm, a flexible and proactive approach to your work, strong organisational and timekeeping skills and, most importantly, excellent communication skills. The CILEx level 2 or 3 (or equivalent secretarial qualification) is also desirable but not essential. 

Excellent benefits package and stunning offices very close to Liverpool Street so ideal for anyone commuting into Liverpool Street.

This is an excellent opportunity to join the London office of an American law firm and is ideal if you have been working as a legal secretary / legal PA and want to take on more responsibility working for a Managing Partner. Fantastic working environment, very friendly team and a top role!
