A small boutique law firm based in Washington, DC is looking to hire a part-time associate to work on complex litigation involving extensive discovery.
The Firm, which was founded by lawyers that left a DC-based international law firm, represents clients in litigation and regulatory matters relating to federally funded health and benefit programs (e.g., Medicare and Medicaid). However, past experience with these programs is not a prerequisite.
The associate’s hours and schedule can be flexible, depending on the associate’s availability and the needs of the Firm, though the firm anticipates a minimum of 10-15 hours/week. In addition, the Firm will consider applicants who wish to join us in working in the office and applicants who wish to work entirely remotely (including applicants who live outside the DC area), as well as hybrid arrangements. This is a great opportunity for a litigator seeking flexibility and/or a better work-life balance.
Job responsibilities will include: managing large e-discovery; reviewing documents; drafting discovery requests and responses to discovery requests; defending and taking depositions (as appropriate based on the candidate’s experience); and researching for and drafting motions and briefs.
Qualifications include: 1-5 years of experience with complex litigation and e-discovery; strong interpersonal skills and analytical abilities; and admission to the DC bar (and, if working remotely, the bar of the State in which you are located). The ideal candidate will enjoy working on a litigation team and fit well in a collaborative and collegial working environment.
Compensation commensurate with experience and the specifics of the part-time arrangement.
The Firm is committed to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace and encourages diverse applicants to apply.
If you are interested in applying for the associate position, please send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
