Essential Job Functions
The Knowledge Research & Data Visualization Specialist will handle a variety of functions for the U.S.-based Knowledge Management Partners, including drafting, customizing, editing and updating client and training presentations, researching and managing external data and organizing internal databases.
The Specialist will interface with U.S.-based attorneys from several different practice groups including public and private M&A, financing, antitrust and tax. Understanding the elements of an M&A transaction is an advantage, however, more importantly the role holder will need to be able to think critically, analyze data effectively and convey complex information clearly.
