The Dallas office of McGuireWoods seeks a Staff Attorney for the Financial Services Litigation Department.
The financial services industry has long been one of the most complex, highly regulated and carefully scrutinized business segments in the world. The collapse of the credit markets and the mortgage foreclosure crisis have created unprecedented challenges for banks and other financial services institutions, not the least of which has been a tidal wave of lawsuits and government investigations attacking fundamental business practices. In addition, banks have been forced to both anticipate and react swiftly to a wide array of new regulations.
McGuireWoods’ long history of representation of financial institutions has prepared the firm well to stand with its clients in meeting these multifaceted and unprecedented challenges. Because we understand the business, our financial services litigation team is called upon by some of the world’s most prominent financial institutions to meet these challenges.
Qualified candidates will have 3+ years of experience in Litigation for a position involving mortgage-related disputes and general litigation. Texas bar is required. Candidate must have strong academic credentials, excellent writing and interpersonal skills, be well-organized (responsible for handling a large volume of cases), and have good negotiation skills.
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.
