The Houston office of McGuireWoods seeks an Associate to join its Business & Securities Litigation Department.
The McGuireWoods Business & Securities Litigation group is equipped to assist all manner of companies, including financial institutions, public companies and closely-held corporations, in all aspects of commercial litigation and dispute resolution. We have extensive experience:
defending clients in high-stakes litigation such as banking and securities class actions, shareholder derivative suits and regulatory investigations;
representing officers and directors as individual defendants; and
advising clients regarding risk mitigation and compliance with state and federal laws.
We coordinate closely 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 2-3 years of litigation experience or experience as a federal judicial clerk. Excellent academic credentials required and journal experience preferred. Texas bar membership required.
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.
