In-House Litigation Attorney Jobs In Chicago
For candidates seeking in-house litigation attorney jobs in Chicago, the city may not have as many openings as NYC, but it makes up by having a similarly vibrant economy, but almost half the living costs.

Chicago, however, has more than 5000 law firms and more than 400 corporate law departments and houses big industry names and employers like Boeing, Kraft Foods, McDonalds, Sears Holdings Corporation, CME Group and others.

Companies like BlueCross Blueshield, Attorney's Liability Assurance Society, Oracle Corporation, Century America Corp, Prudential Capital Group, Global Hyatt Corporation, Tribune Company, and a host of insurance and finance companies have a special attraction because these have frequent and regular litigation work.

In order to work in in-house litigation attorney jobs in Chicago, IL, lawyers have to follow Rule 716 of the Illinois Supreme Court Rules. The current registration fee is $1,250, and the rules allow in-house counsel admission to the bar upon fulfilling certain conditions and certification by their employers that they are not also working as regular attorneys.

For young litigation attorneys, seeking in-house jobs in Chicago makes sense from the point of an assured income in the beginning years of their careers, while they get to know other attorneys and seniors from law firms in court premises. Shifting to law firms is easy, as there are more than 20 big law firms that specialize in litigation as their practice area. These include Jackson Lewis, Mayer Brown, Edwards Wildman Palmer, Ogletree Deakins, Ford & Harrison, Johnson & Bell, Greenberg Traurig, Wilson Elser and others.
