What You Will Expect as Part of Our Team

We provide opportunities for our associates to develop hands-on litigation experiences from investigation stage to appellate practices, including brief and motion writing, analyzing complex factual situations, creating digests of facts to present to court, contributing to an appellate brief, arguing discovery and/or dispositive motions, and providing strategic direction on several matters. We encourage our team members to become avid learners and develop holistic understandings of litigation, instead of being a cog in the machine.  Our litigation attorneys are graduates of top universities, including N.Y.U., Yale, Stanford, and University of Virginia.

Compensation is commensurate with experience. 

To apply to this job, please submit a copy of your CV, a writing sample(s), and two names of professional references.
