Office Manager Legal Job Description

At smaller law firms, the responsibilities of office managers tend to be the same as legal administrators — supervision of all administrative functions. In very small firms, duties also may include helping attorneys in scheduling appointments and ensuring timely and proper preparation of documents. By contrast, office managers at larger law firms tend to focus more specifically on facilities management and information services. This role generally requires at least an associate’s degree and five years of experience in an office administration role, as well as strong communication skills and attention to detail.

Typical office manager duties:

Facilities management, including leasing, office maintenance and cleaning servicesProvision and maintenance of equipmentProvision of office suppliesCoordination with IT to ensure quality information servicesManagement of office budgetVisitor hospitalityEmployee onboardingEvent planning, from in-office catering to parties and conferences
