  • At all times act as an ambassador for the business development strategy and team.
  • Supervise and mentor other members of the LR&T BD team on Arbitration-related related BD initiatives. The applicant must create a nurturing, structured environment for them to build their skills and stretch themselves.
  • Be prepared to challenge, stress-test and/or sense-check the development of core propositions and define how the firm goes to market in a systematic, innovative, and resource-efficient manner.

Relevant Experience:
