  • Overview

    Bain & Company is one of the world's leading global business consulting firms, serving clients across six continents. It was founded in 1973 on the principle that consultants must measure their success in terms of their clients' financial results. Bain's clients have outperformed the stock market 4 to 1. With offices in all major cities, Bain has worked with over 4,400 major multinational and other corporations from every economic sector, in every region of the world.


    Position Summary

    This role fits into a global team of experienced lawyers who work closely together to support a global firm with 53 offices in 34 countries.  We are a fun and high-performance team. Bain is a deeply client-focused organization and our legal team is equally focused on maintaining the highest possible client-service standards with our internal clients.  The successful candidate will be an integral part of Bain’s growing global Legal Group.


    The role will primarily involve dealing with Bain’s offices in AP, but will also involve some EMEA and global project work and training.  We anticipate the regional split to be 70/30 AP/EMEA.  Location is somewhat flexible, but the successful candidate would ideally be based or willing to move to Singapore or Hong Kong.
