The role of the PA is constantly evolving and really differs depending on who you support, the specialism of law, the firm you work for and support structure in that firm.
Traditionally, a PA’s role is organisational: planning diaries, travel and accommodation for the Partner’s they support as well as organising meetings/conferences and events. However, PA’s are playing more pivotal roles in business development, forging key relationships for their Partners through PA networking opportunities as well.
In some firms, the PA’s role is heavily document production and typing focused as well.
PA’s can support 121 as well as whole teams. The relationship between PA and Partner can sometimes be akin to a marriage, getting the right working relationship between PA and Partner / team is essential.
