Personal Assistant to Managing Director

Personal Assistant 

At Cleveland & Co, we are a specialist outsourced legal team providing advisory services in the investment management sector. We think differently, pioneering a better way to serve our clients in an ever-changing world while fostering a culture of success.

We are a team of highly skilled legal professionals at the top of our game. We got here because we believe in doing whatever it takes to be successful. We are resourceful, current, dynamic and agile. Our success is not measured by what floor our office is on but on the impact we can make in the world.
