Overview of Role

Reporting to the Head of Business Development, Continental Europe, Middle East & Africa you will be directly supporting business development and sales activity in the region by helping identify new business opportunities within law firms, regulators, corporates and advisory professionals across CEMEA markets, and by also being occasionally involved in white-space and competition analyses and marketing & communications activities.
