Hausfeld LLP is accepting applications for a junior associate (class of 2017-2019) to join our team in September 2019 in Washington, DC or Philadelphia, PA, primarily working in our antitrust litigation practice area.
This position offers the opportunity for extremely substantive, interesting, and challenging work with recognized leaders in the antitrust bar, including several partners recognized among the top antitrust practitioners in the world. With more than 50 lawyers in the US, and more than 60 in Europe, the majority of whom work in antitrust, our expertise is unrivaled. In addition to antitrust, Hausfeld attorneys litigate mass torts, environmental threats, consumer protection, and human rights cases. Our diverse team of attorneys has been appointed by federal courts to lead the nation’s most complex class actions. We have successfully litigated and negotiated some of the largest settlements ever reached in cases against multinational corporations engaged in price-fixing cartels.
Hausfeld is proud of our role representing clients in both individual and class action litigation seeking private enforcement of antitrust laws. In fact, the Legal 500 called Hausfeld “one of the most capable plaintiffs’ firms involved in the area of civil cartel enforcement,” and “[w]idely recognized as a market leader for claimant-side competition litigation.” We see our role as complementary to that of the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission, in that we prosecute violations of US antitrust laws to ensure fair markets and fair prices for all. Unlike the government agencies, our goal is to ensure that the victims of antitrust violations are appropriately compensated for their losses. Although no antitrust experience is necessary, applicants should be enthusiastic about this mission-driven work and the opportunity to dive into complex problem-solving challenges, while gaining experience in every area of litigation.
Associates at Hausfeld will take a substantial role in researching and writing complaints and briefs, play a strong supporting role in discovery (including taking and defending depositions), and supervise paralegals in litigation-related tasks, among other responsibilities. A strong academic background with excellent writing skills and analytic ability is required, as is the ability to manage and thrive in a fast-paced work environment. We are looking for someone who is a team player, a self-starter, highly organized, and able to juggle multiple responsibilities. The position’s start date is flexible and applicants currently in clerkships are encouraged to apply.
Hausfeld offers generous benefits, including five weeks paid time off, paid parental leave, and on-site gym.
To apply, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your cover letter, resume, transcript, and writing sample.
