Founded in 1982, we are a boutique litigation and government affairs law firm in Washington D.C., looking for a litigation associate attorney to join our law practice. We are a premiere federal employment and federal practice group. We represent individuals and federal agencies in a wide array of civil and administrative litigation on employment issues, security clearance proceedings, attorney disciplinary matters, and federal government investigations. Our individual clients are employees across the entire Executive Branch, including career and political Senior executives, Foreign Service Officers, medical personnel, law enforcement officers, intelligence officers, and attorneys. We assist employers with difficult, sensitive and high profile employee misconduct matters, conducting neutral legally sufficient workplace investigations. We have an expanding practice in federal district and appellate courts, including federal court litigation on novel statutory and constitutional questions involving public employees and three cases before the Supreme Court that established the modern framework on Bivens suits against federal employees.
We have a unique practice area, within the public employment niche. We seek a litigation associate to join us as we expand our federal litigation into like-minded practice areas in administrative and judicial forums. An interest or experience in government suspension and debarment, APA review litigation, or attorney disciplinary and ethics representation is valued.
We are a tight-knit group of attorneys and professionals. Our workplace emphasizes congeniality. We seek applicants who value teamwork, collaboration, and employee engagement and who demonstrate these skill sets.
