Executive Assistant

EA Search is proud to be exclusively representing a long-standing and growing law firm based in Midtown, NY, in the search for an Executive Assistant to support the Managing Partner on a 1:1 basis.

This Managing Partner is the founder and holds 100% equity in the business – as a result, he’s solely responsible for firm-wide decisions leading a team of over 40 Attorneys, Paralegals, and support staff, whilst also managing a small caseload on behalf of his top clients.

Given the business growth, he’s reaching a point whereby he’s at capacity in his day-to-day and requires a super proactive EA to join and help create efficiencies, supporting on ad-hoc projects/tasks on behalf of the Managing Partner, whilst also acting as his buffer and gatekeeper across the business.

This role will be 80% focused on the business side, with 20% coverage on personal matters – usually coordinating with his wife.

The Executive himself is incredibly loyal to those around him and is looking for a long-term partnership here – for example, other Partners have been with the firm since inception, his Billing Manager has been there for over 10 years, and his most trusted Paralegal for over 20 years.
