The responsibilities of this role are expected to be varied and require a high degree of responsiveness, flexibility, and the willingness to learn. Because the company is fast-growing and has an entrepreneurial culture where everyone helps out as needed, this role requires a person that is willing to cheerfully handle both complex matters and mundane tasks. This position also requires exceptional attention to detail; most of the company's employees and clients are corporate attorneys so attention to detail is especially important.
