EXCLUSIVE: Elite DC Energy Boutique Opportunity – Lifestyle & Advancement

We are working on an exclusive and unpublished opportunity with an elite, Chambers-ranked energy boutique. This is the quintessential lifestyle firm where associates bill on average 1,700-1750 annually and have a true path for advancement.

Having worked with this firm for over 20 years, this top energy boutique is one of our most cherished clients, and they have exclusively engaged us in their efforts to find an energy associate (junior to senior level) for its national practice.

The work is predominantly electric regulatory counseling, compliance, and administrative litigation. Natural gas work is a smaller portion of the practice, but the firm would be happy to entertain any energy lawyers focused on that specialty. Clients are generally RTOs and independent generators.

Firm/Practice Differentiators:

  • Prestige of practice: This firm’s energy practice is highly ranked in Chambers and considered by many as the country’s top energy boutique.
  • Promotion opportunities:  Associates are hired with the expectation that they will be promoted to partnership (three of the associates we placed became partners at the firm).   

 

  • True Work/Life Balance:  Associates routinely bill in the range of 1,700 hours annually; there is no minimum billable hour requirement.

 

  • Culture:  The firm is known for investing in its people, developing their expertise, and cultivating a relaxed, low-pressure and supportive environment.

 

Candidate Profile Sought: 2+ years of energy regulatory/FERC experience from a top AmLaw firm, prestigious boutique, FERC, or even in-house.

Compensation is consistent with other specialty regulatory boutiques.

*** This is an amazing opportunity to join a top boutique and still handle prestigious matters, have a great lifestyle, and make partner at a firm with no pressure to develop clients.
