Job: Mid-Level Associate for Insurance Recovery Group
Firm: Reed Smith LLP
The nationally-recognized Insurance Recovery Group of Reed Smith LLP, a global law firm of more than 1500 lawyers, is currently seeking an exceptional Illinois-licensed Mid-Level Litigation Associate to join the Group in Reed Smith’s Chicago Office. The Insurance Recovery Group represents policyholders in all aspects of the insurance recovery process, including reviewing policies and facts surrounding a claim or loss, advising on claim presentation, and negotiating, mediating, and litigating disputes in domestic and international lawsuits and arbitrations.
Candidates should have 3-4 years of mid-large size law firm experience in complex litigation and/or arbitration, excellent academic credentials and strong writing, research, analytical and verbal communication skills. Experience representing policyholders in coverage matters and prior judicial clerkships are positives, but we encourage lawyers with exceptional skills who are eager to learn and willing to commit to the practice to apply.
Candidates should be familiar with federal and state Court Rules and E-Discovery. Experience handling multiple cases, and the ability to serve as the point person on litigation, is required, as is deposition and courtroom experience.
This position offers the opportunity to join a recognized leader in the field of policyholder insurance recovery in a well-established office of a top law firm. The atmosphere is dynamic and entrepreneurial, and the successful candidate will have the unique opportunity to shape their career in a substantial and meaningful way. Reed Smith attorneys regularly collaborate across offices and practice groups. We value diversity and seek to make the practice both professionally and personally rewarding. Reed Smith is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We offer a competitive salary and benefits.
