The New York Attorney General’s Office is seeking an experienced, senior attorney to serve as a key leader on a multistate team that is litigating a cutting-edge, high-profile antitrust action in federal court. The key responsibility will be to manage the day-to-day activities of the multistate team through discovery and trial, ensuring that significant issues are identified and addressed, that all deadlines are met, that discovery is structured and managed efficiently, and that the team is focused on trial preparation. The candidate would report to and work closely with the Chief Deputy for Economic Justice, the Antitrust Bureau Chief, and the Executive Committee of the multistate working group. The candidate would also interface closely with his/her counterparts in relevant federal agencies, and would have regular contact with the Attorneys General of New York and other lead states.
We are seeking candidates with antitrust expertise and at least nine years of experience—similar to that of a junior partner in a law firm or experienced government litigator, including participation in and leadership of complex litigation. Supervisory experience and excellent management, communication, and interpersonal skills are required. Courtroom experience is required and trial experience is a strong plus. The qualified candidate will have a comprehensive understanding of how to construct and execute an effective litigation strategy, up to and including trial.
Applicants must reside in (or intend to soon become a resident of) New York State and be admitted to practice law in New York State. In addition, the Public Officers Law requires that attorneys in the Office be citizens of the United States. A two (2) year commitment upon being hired is a condition of employment.
OAG employees serve more than 19 million state residents through a wide variety of occupations. We offer a comprehensive New York State benefits package, including paid leave, health, dental, vision and retirement benefits, and family-friendly policies. As an employee of the OAG, you will join a team of dedicated individuals who work to serve the people of our State.
