About the OCS Team
The Osborne Clarke Solutions team plays a crucial role in helping clients explore exactly how they would like legal and related services to be delivered to maximise the value to their businesses. The team is overtly focused on the client first, and on developing new products and services to deliver existing services better, and to deliver entirely new services to meet growing client needs. The team operates out of the UK and Germany, with teams of ex-lawyers, and technologists in both locations.
Our Solutions programme has two key goals. First, to make sure we're responding to client demands for greater value, efficiency and certainty from their lawyers, whilst maintaining the highest quality. Secondly, in helping us bring innovative ideas to the delivery of our, or our clients', current and new, services.
By talking to clients, using collaborative technology, and developing legal project management tools, we believe that we can continue to improve the value, efficiency and predictability of our services.
The programme has already delivered solutions to a number of clients across jurisdictions, with hundreds of matters now being instructed, run and managed online. The team is now working on many more opportunities to design and implement new delivery and technology tools, and also help clients' own process improvements.
The team are also heavily involved in ensuring that our lawyers have the products and resources needed to provide the best possible service to our clients.
OCS is headed by partners who focus on developing and delivering new products and services. As the demands on the team grow, we have a need for more dedicated, legally experienced, resource to work with the team, other OCI lawyers and clients, in producing and managing our growing portfolio of new products, services and solutions across OCI jurisdictions.
As well as having an interest in technology, disruption and problem solving, we need someone who:
- Has experience working as a Paralegal or similar
- Understanding of (and preferably experience of) transactional work, and managing transactional processes - eg, DD, CPs, Deal management
- Good client-facing experience
- Coding abilities are not a pre-requisite, but some understanding of coding principles and / or any experience would be useful
- Experience configuring HighQ is advantageous
- A willingness to learn and improve ideas and solutions
Salary and benefits
We offer competitive salaries and generous benefits.
