The Chicago office of Seyfarth Shaw is hiring a mid-level associate with 3-6 years of experience in the areas of white collar and government enforcement defense, internal investigations, and False Claims Act litigation.
The ideal candidate must possess the flexibility, desire, and experience to handle all varieties of white collar matters, government enforcement defense, trials, and internal investigations, including matters involving fraud, embezzlement, the FCPA, insider trading, other securities violations, healthcare violations, customs fraud, trade secret theft, the False Claims Act, among others. The successful candidate must feel comfortable handling cases across subject matters and industries, and must be willing to handle civil litigations as the need arises.
