The Houston office of McGuireWoods seeks an Associate for the 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 1 – 2 years of general litigation experience or experience as a district or circuit judicial clerk.  Excellent academic credentials and writing skills required.  TX bar is required.   Experience with complex litigation is a plus.

Disclaimer: At this time, McGuireWoods will not accept applicants submitted through search firms for this position. All qualified candidates must submit their own applications for consideration.
