Lawyers in this role will handle matters in federal and state courts, and before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and perhaps the Department of Labor, as well as other federal, state, and local administrative agencies, with minimal oversight. <br><br> They will have the ability to handle a practice that includes both overseeing EEOC Charges, including defending investigations, preparing position statements, defending clients in fact-finding conferences and on-site visits, representing clients in mediations and conciliations, and negotiating settlements, as well as directly managing single-plaintiff litigation, including drafting responsive pleadings, handling all aspects of the discovery process (including taking and defending depositions), drafting motions and briefs, including motions for summary judgment, and occasionally attending and handling arbitrations. Occasional travel, both in-state and out-of-state, maybe required.</p><p>YOU HAVE:</p><ul><li><p>8+ years of increasingly responsible employment law experience, preferably on the defense side.</p></li><li><p>Experience handling a single-plaintiff employment lawsuit from start to finish with minimal oversight.</p></li><li><p>Top law firm experience.</p></li><li><p>Excellent academic credentials.</p></li><li><p>Stellar analytical skills; and strong verbal and written communication skills.</p></li><li><p>Admission to the state in which you are applying</p></li></ul><p>WHAT WE PROVIDE:</p><p>We provide competitive salary and benefits at all levels.
