Michael Best is seeking an entry-to-mid level, driven and organized full-time Management Coordinator in our Milwaukee and Waukesha Offices for the Summer of 2022.

May 2022 graduates, recent graduates (or current graduate students with a very flexible schedule) are welcome to apply!

This role provides support to the Firm's Managing Partner and Executive C-Suite Team. This position offers great experience for anyone considering law school, or anyone who wants experience working in the legal, professional services environment.

We believe in career development and progression - this role is a stepping-stone within the Firm. Our Management Coordinators often progress into business development, marketing, and strategic operations roles within the Firm. As we have done with our last four incumbents, after the initial 9-12 months in role, the MC who performs at a high level will be given the opportunity to move into a different role within the firm that matches their interests, skills, and the firm's needs.

  • Maintain discretion and confidentiality
