In response to our clients' continued demand for innovative end-to-end services, ALG Solutions is further developing the breadth and strength of its offering. We are seeking an experienced corporate lawyer interested in taking on a new and exciting role helping to grow, build and develop our legal transactions group within ALG Solutions.

The role will appeal to innovative lawyers who are willing to lead and implement change by embracing alternative delivery solutions for legal transactions using leading edge technology and collaborating with project management and process specialists.
