New York City Litigation Attorney Jobs In Law Firm
For most candidates seeking litigation attorney jobs in law firms, New York City is one of the most obvious choices if they are thinking of relocating, or they are residents of New York or nearby places. The city already has more than 8500 law firms and now, after a recent ethics opinion, the numbers of law firms are expected to increase, as virtual law firm addresses can be used as principal addresses of law firms.

New York City has the highest number of law firms in the country specialized in litigation work. More than one-fourth of the law firms in the city have litigation as their registered practice areas. With more than 2000 firms specialized in litigation to choose from, those seeking litigation attorney jobs in law firms stand a better chance of finding jobs in New York City than in other places.

In fact, when it comes to long-term career prospects for litigation attorneys and getting top employer brands on their resumes, few other cities can compare with New York. The city houses giant law firms like Jones Day, Mayer Brown, Greenberg Traurig, Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin, Pennie & Edmonds, Bingham McCutchen, Skadden, Morrison & Foerster and others among its top employers.

However, besides the obvious big names, those seeking litigation attorney jobs with law firms in New York City also have a preference for litigation specialized firms like Mintz Levin, Sutherland Asbill & Brennan, Jackson Lewis, Loeb & Loeb, Cadwalader, Phillips Nizer, Sullivan Cromwell, and Sheppard Mullin.
