EXCLUSIVE – Prestigious Plaintiff’s Firm w/New D.C. Office Seeks Associate
G&S is proud to present a new, unique client. Our client handles both class action and single-plaintiff matters. This small firm has diverse work including antitrust, healthcare, oil & gas, privacy and commercial litigation. It is a young firm that was founded by two partners from one of the nation’s leading boutiques.
After talking to two key partners, we believe this job is compelling for the following reasons:
- Ground-Floor Opportunity: Two of the firm’s partners have recently relocated and are opening a D.C.-area office. You would be the office’s first associate (and the “go-to” for these two partners).
- Not Structured into Practice Groups: Unlike some plaintiff’s firms, this firm does not preclude you from working on cases from any practice area or any industry.
- Entrepreneurial Environment: Associates are encouraged and supported to bring in cases large and small. This year even a summer associate brought a case to the firm.
- Relaxed, Non-Hierarchical Environment: The firm is one team. No one, including the founding partners, is above doing any type of work that needs to be completed. The firm is loosely structured without the “red tape” found in many larger firms.
- Career Advancement: The firm has a shorter partner track than most firms. Associates have been eligible with as little as five years of experience. The lateral track will likely be between two and four years. The firm is not top-heavy and is expected to make more partners in the future as this young firms grows in size.
Qualifications: 2+ years of litigation experience acquired at a large law firm or prestigious boutique. Candidates must have outstanding academic credentials (judicial clerkship a plus) and significant brief drafting experience is required. Associates with top credentials from local law schools are highly valued.
Please note that Richmond, VA candidates will be considered as well.
**Associate positions at plaintiff’s litigation boutiques of this quality are somewhat rare in the D.C./VA market.
