Will have a substantial government transparency practice (i.e., OPRA), and capabilities and experience that would support building a practice in employment litigation (employee side).

2. A senior associate at a firm in a position to invest time..
3. A senior litigator willing and able to get by on minimal pay while building a practice and awaiting the “pipeline.”
