Chief Operating Officer (COO)

Posted: May 17, 2018

Chief Operating Officer (COO) for prestigious and fast-growing NYC law firm.

Our client runs THE premier law firm in the country advocating for victims of sexual assault, blackmail, and stalking. Located in Brooklyn, New York, their client base includes some of the most high-profile cases in this area, and CBS is currently developing a drama series based on the life and career of the owner of the firm. The focus and excellence of the firm and its founder have resulted in the firm growing at a rate over 10x the average law firm growth rate in the country. The firm is, thus, in need of a seasoned Chief Operating Officer (COO) to come alongside the owner of the firm to help them systematize and scale their operations to keep pace with their rapid growth.

As the most senior non-legal member on the team, the COO will be THE key point of leadership to all staff members and work closely with the owner on firm-wide strategy, systems development, and HR issues. The COO will be involved in all phases of administration, personnel, finances, facilities, technology, and security, and will be responsible for planning, organizing, directing, and controlling the day-to-day operations of the Firm. The Owner is essentially looking for her Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook) to help her scale this firm to its next stage of growth and industry dominance!

An ideal candidate will have at least 10 years of experience as a Professional Legal Administrator or in a COO-level role and will have experience helping startup-level enterprises navigate the complexities of rapid growth (10x the industry average). Critical requirements include a dedication to the Firm’s mission, the ability to conduct oneself in an ethical and trustworthy manner, and sufficient EQ to navigate clients and staff members that often engage the firm in extremely sensitive and vulnerable contexts. A high degree of energy, adaptability to rapid change, and ability to provide creative solutions to new (and old) problems will also be required to thrive in this role.
