Top 3 Cool Legal Jobs This Week: Litigation

By Casey C. Sullivan, Esq. on August 12, 2016 1:57 PM

Forget transactional work; forget compliance. You became a lawyer because you wanted to get into the courtroom. If you're already a litigator looking for greener pastures, we've got em; and if you're just looking to transition into litigation, now's the time.

As part of our affiliate partnership with Indeed, we're bringing you the three coolest legal jobs of the week, with a focus on litigation.

1. Commercial Litigation In-House Attorney, ConEd

Consolidated Edison, that New York-area energy behemoth, is looking for an experienced in-house litigator. And this isn't your typical corporate law job, either. Con Ed promises a job where "you can actually litigate your own cases, work closely with clients, and receive competitive compensation with a host of benefits." That doesn't sound bad to us.

But if you want this spot, experience is key. Con Ed is looking for attorneys with deposition and trial experience, and a fair amount of it: seven years for a senior attorney position, 10 for an associate counsel job.

2. Deputy General Counsel, Litigation, Airbnb

Airbnb is no stranger to high-stakes litigation. The tech unicorn has been in high profile battles with New York and San Francisco, not to mention occasional lawsuits from users. And you could be part of it all, helping shape the future of short-term rental law (among other issues).

The company is looking for a deputy GC for its litigation team. It's perfect "if you enjoy ambiguity [and] love working on some complex legal and social issues," Airbnb writes.

3. Litigation Director, U.S. PIRG

PIRG, the federation of state Public Interest Research Groups, knows litigation. The group has been using impact litigation to influence federal policy for decades. Now they're looking for someone new to help direct those ongoing efforts.

As litigation director, you'd be responsible for PIRG's federal court litigation. That includes everything from case development to research to Supreme Court briefing.
