Hudson Law Firm

We are looking for a Professional Legal Administrator to work directly with our Owner to oversee everything except the practice of law. This includes not only strategic planning, project management, and critical administrative and financial oversight, but is also a key leadership role in shaping and sustaining Firm culture.


This is an executive-level position for a bona fide Legal Administrator who will be responsible for a wide range of activities in all phases of administration, personnel, finances, facilities, and business systems. We need someone with significant hands-on experience. We need someone with the experience and maturity to keep the Firm’s needs in the forefront and work closely with the Owner and key staff on strategy, policy, problem-solving, and decision-making. The ideal candidate understands that you cannot manage what you do not measure – and can help us figure out how to build systems to ensure we can measure and manage effectively.

Responsibilities

Our Legal Administrator will be responsible for planning and managing the day-to-day operations of the Firm, and for implementing Firm policies and procedures under the general guidance and supervision of the Owner.Our Legal Administrator will create or improve all administrative functions in our Firm. We are building a Firm where systems run the business, and people run the systems.

You must be able to show evidence of your prior success with:

  • Business process refinement and systems management to ensure profitable operation of the Firm
  • Systems management to ensure matters are handled appropriately so that client needs are met, legal ethical requirements are met, and clients receive excellent service
  • Employee leadership, performance management, supervision (and termination)
  • Understanding and using common financial reports to make decisions (budget variance, PL, cashflow forecast)
  • Management of bookkeeper, accountant, technology systems and other vendors

Qualifications

You must have experience managing a team of more than 15 people and a budget of more than $5,000,000. This is not a position for an “Office Manager” or an “Administrative Assistant.” We need someone with the experience and maturity to keep the Firm’s needs in the forefront and work closely with the Owner and key staff on strategy, policy, problem-solving, and decision-making. The ideal candidate understands that you cannot manage what you do not measure – and can help us figure out how to build systems to ensure we can measure and manage effectively.

Our ideal candidate is not just comfortable with growth and change but thrives in an environment where people are constantly looking to improve the business and themselves. Our business grew fast, and while we are not a “start-up,” we have a growth-focused environment. 

Compensation
$85,000+ annually
