        Manager - Legal Admin (Legal & Compliance)

        Join our Legal team in Hyderabad

        The Legal Admin (LA) team, a sub-team of the Legal department based in Hyderabad, India, undertakes multiple processes that facilitate the smooth functioning of the New York Legal team. Responsibilities include collating information, analyzing content, executing processes, managing databases and documents, interacting with counterparties, and summarizing information in requested formats.

        What you’ll do day-to-day

        In this role, you will oversee all the LA processes from the Hyderabad, India office. These processes include the following: Entity Administration: As the custodian of all entity-related information housed in the firm's entity management database, you will update and maintain this database in real-time. Also, you will handle entity-related matters like formations, closures, and qualifications, including drafting and editing of some standard legal documents when requested. Legal Billing Process: You will process all legal bills pertaining to the New York, London, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, and Mauritius offices while following set protocols to obtain allocations and approvals (all while monitoring until bills are paid). You will also generate reports with invoice details, reconciliation of invoices from law firms, and interact with the New York-based Accounts Payable team and law firms to pay bills seamlessly. Memos, Org Charts & Filings: You will compile legal memos and events on SharePoint for New York-based attorneys on a weekly basis. This requires reading through various memos and articles and adding the right key word to enable the attorneys in New York to search based on their area of expertise and/or interest. You will create, update, and maintain the company’s entity structure organization charts and update the charts on a quarterly basis. Additionally, you will track, prepare, and submit all annual report filings within stipulated timelines across various jurisdictions in the U.S. and globally as well (including annual franchise tax filings). Know Your Customer: You will satisfy the requests of global counterparties for information as part of their due diligence on clients, provide appropriate standard documentation and negotiate sensitive disclosures. You will handle confidential information on time-sensitive and mission-critical requests. You will master a complex system of information about our ownership and control structures, signatory authorities, and documentation protocols. Aid and implement new LA processes: You will have to understand, implement, and execute new LA processes to meet enhanced process requirements. You will also manage all existing and future LA projects from start to end, in collaboration with the New York and London LA team members. People Management: You will manage the present LA team from the Hyderabad, India office (approx. 30%). The role involves mentoring and leading the LA team to execute deliverables efficiently and on time. You will also manage and delegate the flow of projects and prioritize based on deadlines. You are also expected to execute the deliverables (not restricted to managing alone), based on the team’s availability and deadlines (approx. 70%).
