Job Number: 21028215383
Position Title: Professional Legal Administrator / COO

You will function as an advisor, coach, confidant, leader, guide and mentor for up to 30 owners of law firms who are already enrolled in our program. You will be part of a team consisting of yourself and up to two other team members who serve as the Fractional C-Suite for our clients to help them address different parts of their business.

Owners of large law firms have the benefit of a Professional Legal Administrator or Chief Operating Officer to drive the systems development and operations of the firm. Solo and small law firm owners benefit greatly when we provide them with similar assistance by providing them with the strategic direction and accountability they need to drive the growth of their firm, then help them build the infrastructure to accommodate that growth as well. We provide that assistance by having members of our team serve as their outside COO.

It will be your job to lead this team as a Fractional Chief Operations Officer for our clients. You will be the primary guide for our clients to help them navigate our curriculum, through our various programs, which guide a solo law firm from start-up to 7 figures of revenue.

More specifically, it will be your job to use our methods combined with your own experience, creativity and intelligence to understand and help each of our clients reach the next stage of their law firm's growth.

Your role will be to help clients design systems and create policies and procedures that empower them to standardize their firm's operations and hire an A+ team that will help them create a true business (vs. a mere practice). As part of this, you will help them break free of the mindset of a typical legal technician and start to see the world more clearly as a true entrepreneur and manager. It will be your job to coach them the roadblocks that are standing between where they are now and where they need to be.

As part of this job, you will measure assigned client progress and hold assigned clients accountable for taking positive actions in the direction of their stated goals. Your compensation will be positively affected by the success of our clients assigned to you.


Required Skills:

You should have practical, hands-on experience managing policies, procedures, and systems development, ideally for law firms.

A preferred candidate will either have extensive COO type experience across multiple companies, plus some limited law firm experience, or have at least 3-5 years (or more) as a Professional Legal Administrator for a law firm

You should have practical, hands-on experience with the start-up, management, and growth of a small business, preferably a small law firm.

Ideally, you have already read and are a big fan of "The E-myth Revisited"

You must be able to demonstrate credible evidence that you are a person who is capable of helping another human being to do what they probably don't want to do, in order to accomplish what they really do want to accomplish.
