Position: Senior Counsel in Corporate/Bond Finance
Company: Seyfarth Shaw LLP
Location: Atlanta, GA

Description: At Seyfarth Shaw, our team focuses on finance and incentives transactions. The client base is largely the public sector. This includes local authorities, particularly development authorities, but does not include the state. Only infrequently will cities or counties be the direct client. Our practice base also includes real estate developers, operating companies (particularly with transactional work), and private lenders and borrowers.

Our engagements are mostly in the field of economic development or community development- new business locations or expansions (including financing for facilities), infrastructure, public-private partnerships, layering capital stacks and deal structuring, etc. Our finance work includes industrial development revenue bonds (IDBs). Some IDB bond issues are tax-exempt; most are not. Other key financial products include project finance, syndicated bank loans, EB-5 immigrant investor capital, and tax credit finance (including New Markets Tax Credits).

The team’s new member would support our bond work and related matters. It is not a requirement that the individual be or become an expert in the federal income tax law of tax-exempt finance, although some familiarity with the field is necessary.

We would expect the new team member to be engaged in, and contribute to, the team’s evolving work outside the bond industry. Important aspects of that are credits & incentives work outside Georgia, state and local tax law, commercial law, EB-5 work (financing, and securities and other regulatory issues), and tax credit finance. The individual need not be an expert in all of these fields, but must be well enough equipped in enough of them in order to be immediately productive.

We estimate that the best candidate for the position would have at least 15 years’ experience practicing law. Credentials in other disciplines, aligned with the individual’s intended role, would be a plus. Another asset would be admission to the bars of other states in addition to Georgia, particularly in the Southeast.

Seyfarth also is an influential leader in diversity. The firm has been recognized for eight consecutive years in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. We have been named one of the “Best Law Firms for Women” by Working Mother six years in a row, and we have been honored with the Thomas L.

Position: Labor & Employment Counsel - Chicago
Company: Seyfarth Shaw LLP
Location: Chicago, IL

Description: The Counsel role is a full-time (40 hours per week) salaried position designed to be flexible on location, including working from home with access to any of our local offices as needed. This is for experienced lawyers who do not seek to be in a partner-track position, but who want to continue to do sophisticated legal work and have direct client involvement. Candidates should have 7+ years of increasingly responsible employment law experience, preferably on the defense side, and be excited to work on a collaborative and innovative team, delivering high-quality work and identifying technological and creative ways to maximize efficiencies for single-plaintiff employment litigation.

As Counsel, candidates must be very comfortable handling a single-plaintiff employment lawsuit from start to finish with minimal oversight. In this role, Counsel will routinely interface directly with clients and Firm partners, as well as provide litigation recommendations and develop defense strategy. The Managed Services Team is an elite team of legal and business experts within Seyfarth who deliver high-quality legal work through a combination of specialized talent, process design, and adaptive technology.

They will have the ability to handle a practice that includes both overseeing EEOC Charges, including defending investigations, preparing position statements, defending clients in fact-finding conferences and on-site visits, representing clients in mediations and conciliations, and negotiating settlements, as well as directly managing single-plaintiff litigation, including drafting responsive pleadings, handling all aspects of the discovery process (including taking and defending depositions), drafting motions and briefs, including motions for summary judgment, attending and handling arbitrations, and, where appropriate, delegating such work to and reviewing the work of more junior attorneys. Occasional travel, both in-state and out-of-state, may be required.

A Counsel will be dedicated to a limited number of client portfolios of employment work, such that the lawyer will become immersed in the business needs of a particular industry or industries and will be able to develop a deep knowledge of a client’s preferences, as well as grow the client relationship. The Counsel will be responsible for handling and litigating such clients’ portfolios within a particular geographic region, in addition to working directly with the relevant relationship partners to foster a stronger client relationship.

We offer an entrepreneurial environment and an excellent opportunity to continue to develop strong skills and grow with a national law firm. At Seyfarth, we value diversity and provide equal opportunities to all qualified applicants.

Note To Agencies and Applicants: At this time, Seyfarth Shaw LLP will not be accepting applications submitted through search firms for this position. All qualified candidates must submit their own applications to be considered for this position.

Position: Labor & Employment Counsel - Sacramento
Company: Seyfarth Shaw LLP
Location: Sacramento, CA

Description: The Counsel role is a full-time (40 hours per week) salaried position designed to be flexible on location, including working from home with access to any of our local offices as needed. This is for experienced lawyers who do not seek to be in a partner-track position, but who want to continue to do sophisticated legal work and have direct client involvement. Candidates should have 7+ years of increasingly responsible employment law experience, preferably on the defense side, and be excited to work on a collaborative and innovative team, delivering high-quality work and identifying technological and creative ways to maximize efficiencies for single-plaintiff employment litigation.

As Counsel, candidates must be very comfortable handling a single-plaintiff employment lawsuit from start to finish with minimal oversight. In this role, Counsel will routinely interface directly with clients and Firm partners, as well as provide litigation recommendations and develop defense strategy. The Managed Services Team is an elite team of legal and business experts within Seyfarth who deliver high-quality legal work through a combination of specialized talent, process design, and adaptive technology. We attract former in-house lawyers, former partners in firms, and former associates who want the experience of working on exciting matters in an entrepreneurial and professional, yet flexible, environment. We are expanding this team and invite you to learn more about this unique opportunity.

Legal Responsibilities: A Counsel is responsible for leading, managing, and/or supporting legal matters relating to Single-Plaintiff Litigation and Administrative Charges. Lawyers in this role will handle matters in federal and state courts, and before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and perhaps the Department of Labor, as well as other federal, state, and local administrative agencies, with minimal oversight. They will have the ability to handle a practice that includes both overseeing EEOC Charges, including defending investigations, preparing position statements, defending clients in fact-finding conferences and on-site visits, representing clients in mediations and conciliations, and negotiating settlements, as well as directly managing single-plaintiff litigation, including drafting responsive pleadings, handling all aspects of the discovery process (including taking and defending depositions), drafting motions and briefs, including motions for summary judgment, attending and handling arbitrations, and, where appropriate, delegating such work to and reviewing the work of more junior attorneys. Occasional travel, both in-state and out-of-state, may be required.

A Counsel will be dedicated to a limited number of client portfolios of employment work, such that the lawyer will become immersed in the business needs of a particular industry or industries and will be able to develop a deep knowledge of a client’s preferences, as well as grow the client relationship. The Counsel will be responsible for handling and litigating such clients’ portfolios within a particular geographic region, in addition to working directly with the relevant relationship partners to foster a stronger client relationship.

We offer an entrepreneurial environment and an excellent opportunity to continue to develop strong skills and grow with a national law firm. At Seyfarth, we value diversity and provide equal opportunities to all qualified applicants.

Note To Agencies and Applicants: At this time, Seyfarth Shaw LLP will not be accepting applications submitted through search firms for this position. All qualified candidates must submit their own applications to be considered for this position.
