You made it through law school and landed an impressive position. Shouldn’t you be concentrating on something other than just making it through the day? We’re looking for experienced, entrepreneurial lawyers to join us as we reinvent the business of law. Lawyers who have already done the nose-to-the-grindstone mega law firm thing.
Lawyers who have worked in-house as General or Senior Counsel for some of the world’s finest companies. Lawyers who enjoy helping people achieve their business objectives. Lawyers who love making deals happen and solving business problems. Lawyers who bring that something ‘extra’ to the job. Lawyers who are interested in doing interesting work. But on their own terms. While enjoying an attractive income.
To pass Cognition’s rigorous screening test you’ll need the desire to achieve a balance between your legal career and other aspects of your life. The willingness to work hard when you need to, so you can call the shots when you aren’t. The ability to adapt quickly. Honestly. With integrity. And common sense. A sense of humour isn’t mandatory, but it couldn’t hurt.
The bottom line?
If you are interested in exploring life outside the traditional law firm setting or beyond the confines of a cubicle in a single organization, we just might be able to offer you the ideal work environment. Which may, in many instances, turn out to be your home office. Giving you the best of both worlds. The fulfilling, stimulating, problem-solving kind of legal work you love. And, the freedom to enjoy more of all the other things you love. Sound refreshing? It should.
Cognition allows me to continue my work as an in-house counsel at a variety of Fortune 500 companies. The work is varied and challenging; it is the same work I was doing during my tenure as in-house counsel prior to joining Cognition. Now however, I do the majority of my work from my home office, I am home with my family and I control how much I want to work. When you add in the fact that I am making more money than I did when I was on salary, I wonder why I ever worked in a traditional style firm or as an employee!
Cognition LLP provides me with a variety of interesting and challenging work on an autonomous and flexible basis that I can shape around my own career goals. I also appreciate the efforts of the principals to create a collaborative team atmosphere, and to find great clients, including many entrepreneurial ventures. I would recommend Cognition LLP to any mid to senior level lawyer seeking interesting work, the ability to work within businesses and great work-life balance for whatever their outside interests might be. Cognition LLP lets me focus on doing the best work for the client, at reasonable rates and with a solid, online infrastructure at my fingertips.
