McGuireWoods’ Chicago office seeks an Associate in the Business & Securities Litigation Department to focus on healthcare litigation, False Claims Act actions, and internal and government investigations, as well as aviation litigation and general litigation.
The McGuireWoods Business & Securities Litigation Department represents a diverse group of companies, including healthcare entities, financial institutions, aviation companies, and other companies in all aspects of commercial litigation and dispute resolution.
Associates in our litigation group work with leanly staffed litigation teams and receive significant experience early on. We coordinate with our e-discovery team to efficiently manage the discovery burdens associated with complex litigation. When criminal proceedings run parallel to civil litigation, we work with the firm’s white-collar defense team to manage the client’s interests in a unified manner. While we stand ready to try cases in both federal and state courts, we also explore alternative resolution options when they will help clients achieve their objectives, reduce costs and administrative burdens, and offer creative solutions not typically available through the courts.
Qualified candidates will have 1-3 years of litigation experience. Due to the fact that one main focus for the position will be healthcare litigation, related experience is a plus but not required. Excellent academic credentials and writing skills are also required. Candidates who have completed a federal clerkship are preferred. Please submit cover letter, resume, law school transcript and writing sample.
Disclaimer: At this time, McGuireWoods will not be accepting applicants submitted through search firms or headhunters for this position. All qualified candidates must submit their own applications for consideration.
