Who We’re Looking For

You are a stellar attorney with at least 2 full years of experience litigating commercial disputes in New York.  Experience litigating copyright, trademark or employment matters is a plus, but not necessary. You are practical and resourceful.  Your legal research and writing are on point.  You take great pride in submitting a well-written and researched brief to the Court. You understand the anatomy of a case and have drafted pleadings, discovery documents, and motions.  You have been involved in document productions and understand how the process works. You have attended court conferences and depositions – if not as a first-chair, as a second-chair.  You love being a lawyer and in particular a litigator.  You communicate effectively, in plain-English.  You are licensed to practice law in New York. You have a great sense of humor and litigation deadlines do not phase you.  You are positive, resilient and confident.  You are almost always prepared.  You enjoy learning and improving.  You are receptive to constructive feedback.  You treat everyone (clients, adversaries, colleagues and cleaning staff) with respect.  You are polished and poised with lots of energy. You understand that the legal profession is a service business.  Clients love you.  You are always responsive and often proactive.  You keep your clients and the team well-informed.

You Would

  • Report to our Head of Litigation.
  • Draft, review and revise pleadings, discovery, motions and deliver practical advice.
  • As your skills grow you would attend court conferences, take depositions and argue motions.
