  • Manage disputes, including litigations.
  • Using Danaher Business System (DBS) tools, help the legal and compliance team identify, design and implement continuous process improvement initiatives, such as initiatives to improve the team's client service levels or streamline the its template agreements.

  • Ability to communicate and work effectively with associates at all levels of the company, from most junior to most senior, employing a service-oriented, business-minded approach to the practice of law.
