Unpublished Environmental/Mass Torts Litigation Opportunity: Chambers-Ranked, Wonderful Culture, Partnership Potential


Garrison has been exclusively engaged by a top Chambers-ranked practice to assist in their unpublished efforts to recruit a mid-level associate to focus on toxic torts/environmental law. You will have an opportunity to take on a major role in one of the firm’s most important matters (a mass torts environmental investigation/litigation) as well as, over time, environmental cases and rulemaking challenges involving a wide variety of statutes including CAA, CWA and NEPA.


Culture: This firm is considered to be a Washington, D.C. gold standard for its atmosphere. For decades, the firm has been known to be friendly, compassionate and welcoming to all. This firm recruits carefully and places an emphasis on personality.


The Group: This is a large, full-service environmental and mass torts practice with numerous investigatory and litigation matters. They are a government-facing practice with a significant number of partners having high-level EPA and DOJ experience. Their client list consists of a “who’s who” of Fortune 500 companies.


Strong Advancement Potential: Due to an associate departure for a Federal Circuit Court Clerkship, the firm has a hole in their mid-levels ranks. Our client has a strong track record of advancing associates, and this hire is being made with the intention of preparing this person for partnership. All but one of their partners and counsels are former laterals.


Hours/Compensation: The firms offer a variety of hours-based salary options that can bring you to about 90%+ of the Cravath scale.  Associates average 1,900-2,000 hours in the group (which includes credit for pro bono and DEI efforts).


Requirements: Two-four years of litigation, investigations or environmental experience at an AmLaw 200 firm or prestigious boutique. Honors from law school highly preferred. Candidates may sit in the DC, New York, or San Francisco office.
