You will be based in our Boston, New Jersey or Washington, DC office. You will work directly with the location office managing partner (OMP) as a thought partner. You will manage and facilitate the execution of the OMP's priorities within and beyond office location, serving on his behalf, and will work closely with other members of the core leadership team, regional cell and practice leaders, the broader partnership, as well as the office's firm service professional teams and leadership.
You will help design and drive the agenda for the office across diverse topics to enable our client service teams to bring the best to clients, to make blended teams thrive and to accelerate innovation.

You will advance a set of priority initiatives including aligning meeting agendas with priorities, creatively designing the flow of meetings, helping leaders shape and prepare materials for discussion, and summarizing decisions and tracking progress. You will be creating a clear communication strategy for partner engagement with consistent rhythm and tone of communications. You will coordinate and lead special initiatives in partnership with members of the client service capabilities leadership team.
