Solutions Design Associate Axiom Law
Axiom, a modern alternative to the traditional law firm, is the largest and fastest growing provider of managed legal services to F500 companies. We're a new category of firm that applies the best practices from other industries and a better business model to help clients do legal work intelligently. Our streamlined cost-structure and deep expertise in the business of law help General Counsel solve problems and manage their departments more effectively.
Axiom?s most strategic and fastest growing line of business is our Managed Services division. At the heart of Axiom?s innovation agenda, Managed Services is responsible for conceptualizing, designing, and implementing Axiom?s complex project and outsourcing solutions. Unlike Management Consulting firms, the Managed Services team at Axiom is charged with building, implementing, and executing ? not just advising. This critical distinction is what has attracted an incredibly talented team made up of partners and consultants from leading strategy consulting firms (McKinsey, BCG), pioneers from the world of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), and experts in cutting edge technologies and systems.
Staffed with the most talented team in the legal industry, Managed Services partners with our F500 clients to identify legal processes and activities that can be effectively outsourced to Axiom.

On the one the hand, someone excited by the ?start up? mindset, but also someone comfortable with role fluidity and a roll-up-the-sleeves attitude ? this is not ?business-as-usual.?

Assist in the global pricing strategy for managed services by developing pricing tools and contributing to the discussion of outsourcing economics and profitability.
Be responsible for owning and driving material work streams on client diagnostic efforts within current and prospective F500 clients, leveraging Axiom proprietary tools, methodologies, and intellectual property. These diagnostics will combine surveys, data collection and analysis, interviews, and other qualitative and quantitative methodologies.
Based on diagnostic findings, the Associate will work with other members of the Managed Services team to develop hypotheses and recommendations for high priority areas of improvement for client?s legal department.
Working with more senior members of the Managed Services team, apply Axiom best practices to specific client situations to help design an improved outsourcing-based model, including modifications to a client?s current workflows, team structures, processes, and tools that will deliver significant improvements in quality, cost, and service levels.
