Bird & Bird

About the job

The role legal project assistant is a new role in our office because we saw a need for a hybrid role between legal assistant and project leader. As a legal project assistant you will work closely with the commercial team and being a key person in the day-to-day business.

You will lead various types of projects and handle the whole client life cycle. You will work on pitches for clients, case presentations and during the whole process work closely with our lawyers to delivering a high-class experience for our clients and internally for us. Being the legal project assistant, you will follow up deadlines, handle budget towards the client and continuously following-up. Your role also includes assisting in translations and other administrative tasks.

To be successful in this role we see that
You have the ability to think strategically and a proactive way of working. You take charge if you see something that needs to be done. You have customer focus and thrive in building great relationships internally and with our clients. Structure is important to you and you have an eye for detail. New tasks can come in at short notice, so flexibility is important, you need to be able to shift direction and see what needs to be prioritized. You are also curious and always wanting to learn more.

What we look for in applicants
Since we are an international law firm, fluency in Swedish and English is required. The role entails working in Power Point, Excel and Word, knowledge in these systems is therefore important. We also see that you have worked in a similar role before. Experience of working in a time and billing program as well as in a law firm is a plus!
