Recently I ran a post about the FTC’s interest in hiring junior attorneys:   “FTC Has the Help Wanted Sign Out.”  Yesterday the Antitrust Division, USDOJ announced that it is seeking experienced trial lawyers to serve as first and second chairs on the Division’s active and growing litigation docket.   More information from the announcement is below:

The United States Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, is seeking experienced first-chair and second-chair trial lawyers to take leadership roles on high-profile antitrust and competition cases involving challenges to anticompetitive mergers and business conduct, including monopolization cases. The attorneys hired can expect to be given significant responsibility and have immediate involvement with antitrust matters of national importance.

Senior Trial Counsel will be hired for 13-month Term Appointments, with the option of extension up to 4 years. The positions will be based out of the Division’s Washington, San Francisco, New York, or Chicago offices.  Our office places a high value on diversity of experiences and perspectives and encourages applications from all qualified individuals from all ethnic and racial backgrounds, veterans, LGBT individuals, and persons with disabilities.

Some of the required qualificators are:

  • At least seven years of complex litigation and trial experience (more than 15 years preferred), with a preference for experience in civil litigation;
  • Trial team leadership experience, preferably as first-chair or second-chair;
  • Significant brief-writing and oral-argument experience;

For full information about these openings, see here.

Thanks for reading.
