The Team

The Legal team is a dynamic, external and internal-facing function which supports all aspects of the business across all offices, from Tokyo to San Francisco. Client Protection is an autonomous function designed to help our clients use our services and access knowledge safely. It has a wide remit and visibility, operating cross-functionally on a variety of levels within the business and with our clients.


The Role

This is a unique opportunity for a data analyst to work in a global, high-performing Legal and Client Protection function within an international, high-growth firm. You will be an integral part of the global Legal and Client Protection team and report directly to the Program Manager who is centrally based in London.
