When company resources and reputations are at stake, clients count on McGuireWoods for help unraveling even the most complex financial structures, strategic transactions and business relationships.

We bring innovation and a relentlessly business-minded focus in providing cost-effective, efficient solutions that further our clients’ business goals.
We represent the full range of business clients − from emerging companies to multinational Fortune 100 corporations − operating in virtually every sector of the global economy. We provide counsel on all types of business disputes, and have developed particular strengths in handling complex commercial litigation, financial services litigation, insurance coverage litigation, and securities litigation.
Our commercial litigators garner respect from high-level legal decision-makers at some of the most-respected companies, winning numerous commendations. Prestigious independent ratings publications such as Chambers USA, Chambers Global, Legal 500 US and U.S. News-Best Lawyers recognize our practice and individual lawyers among the best for business matters.
The position entails managing all phases of litigation and includes constant client interaction. Qualified candidates will be experienced litigators with first-chair trials in their background. The ideal candidate will have large commercial firm experience, tort litigation exposure, insurance coverage knowledge, and the ability to supervise, direct, and coordinate teams of attorneys.
