The litigation department at the Midtown Manhattan office of a growing 18 attorney law firm seeks a highly motivated full-time litigation associate for immediate hire. The ideal candidate should have 3 or more years of experience in general commercial litigation as well as commercial and residential real estate/landlord-tenant litigation. Interest from attorneys with more experience, who are well established and successful, is welcomed.
The majority of our litigation is in the Supreme and Appellate Courts, with a significant minority in Commercial Part 52, the Housing Parts, and the Civil and District Courts. A sampling of our case load includes matters involving leasing and other real property disputes, commercial contracts, corporate shareholder disputes, and religious and not-for-profit corporations - including their corporate governance, the administration and recovery of property occupied by diminishing congregations, and First Amendment issues involving the justiciability of ecclesiastical disputes in civil courts.
The right candidate will be confident and have excellent interpersonal skills, be a compelling and engaging advocate and writer with strong legal research skills, and experienced in court appearances on motions, hearings and trials. The candidate must also be able to work under pressure and manage deadlines, be comfortable engaging with clients, and maintain the highest levels of ethics and integrity. Current work is largely remote of course, but we hope to increase our opportunities to meet and engage in our offices and the courts as soon as possible.
We collaborate not only internally but with all other departments, particularly the real estate development and commercial leasing practice, so being a team player is a must. We also collaborate and cross-pollinate with the firm’s estate administration, elder law and tax practices.
The firm offers a competitive salary and benefits and strongly encourages individual growth, all while providing a congenial and nurturing work environment. The right candidate will receive invaluable experience in various aspects of litigation. We have a thriving practice that litigates a wide variety of interesting and often intellectually challenging matters, with opportunities that you won’t normally find in most firms. Salary and future increases will reflect an individual’s capacity to contribute to the firm on a wide range of metrics commensurate with experience, potential, quality of work, ability to work independently, and work ethic.
We are located 5 blocks from Penn Station and also have an office in Jericho/Syosset.
