Strategy and Delivery Manager, Client Projects Axiom Law
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Axiom, a new model professional services firm in the legal industry, is seeking a Strategy and Delivery Manager, Client Projects to join our Managed Services team. Managed Services is the fastest-growing part of Axiom, and is responsible for the development, implementation, and delivery of Axiom?s projects and outsourced legal service offerings.
Who We Are
Founded in 2000, Axiom saw the need to rethink the way legal services were delivered. Today, Axiom comprises a team of 1,000 across 11 client service offices and 4 delivery centers on 3 continents and has grown at 50%+ CAGR since inception. Axiom serves nearly half of the F100, and has 90% client retention. Our clients include Cisco, Google, Honeywell, NBC, Avon, Yahoo! and many of the world?s largest financial institutions.
Driving much of this growth is Axiom?s Managed Services division ? a recognized pioneer in delivering Managed Legal Solutions. Indeed, the Legal and Compliance industries have historically lacked a delivery model that integrates both legal know-how and operational excellence. In-house departments tend to be sub-scale, law firms lack process DNA, and traditional BPO providers lack legal know-how. Axiom?s process and technology driven model delivers legal and compliance processes with tighter risk management, better service, and lower cost. Unlike Management Consulting firms, the Managed Services team at Axiom is charged with building 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.
In recognition of the above, The Financial Times? 2012 Innovative Lawyers Report recognized Axiom as the leader in ?The Business of Law? and ?The Most Innovative Firm in Corporate Strategy.? Axiom?s unique approach has also been recognized by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Forbes, and BBC.
