The Norfolk office of McGuireWoods seeks an Associate for the Government Investigations and White Collar Litigation Department.
Our nationally-recognized team of nearly 60 attorneys represents Fortune 100 and other companies and individuals in the full range of civil and criminal investigations and enforcement matters at both the federal and state level. Drawing on a deep bench of former prosecutors and regulators — including veterans of the Office of Counsel to the President, the Department of Justice, and the Securities and Exchange Commission — McGuireWoods has earned the trust of elite organizations and individuals worldwide on some of the most notable matters over the last decade. We consistently rank among the world’s premier investigations firms in the GIR 100 and Law360 has named us a White Collar Firm of the Year.
When individuals and organizations face serious allegations of regulatory or criminal malfeasance, experienced legal counsel is an absolute necessity. At McGuireWoods, we draw on a team of more than 60 attorneys, devoted exclusively to these difficult, high-stakes inquiries. Our success is due, in part, to our attorneys’ experience conducting and supervising investigations while serving in important leadership positions at federal and state regulatory and law enforcement agencies.
We represent clients at every stage of government investigations, from informal inquiries through disciplinary proceedings and appeals, and we advise on matters involving a broad spectrum of federal agencies and other investigative bodies. Building on a team of more than a dozen former federal prosecutors, we handle civil and criminal matters before the Department of Justice, ranging from Civil Division investigations under the False Claims Act to grand jury and other criminal investigations and proceedings conducted by DOJ’s Criminal Division.
Qualified candidates will have 1 - 3 years of general litigation experience or experience as a federal judicial clerk. Excellent drive, interest in being challenged, academic credentials, and writing skills are required. Experience with complex litigation, federal criminal law, or investigations is a plus. A VA bar license is required.
Disclaimer: At this time, McGuireWoods will not be accepting applicants submitted through search firms or headhunters for this position. All qualified candidates must submit their own applications for consideration.
