Our client, a large mid-market full-service firm is seeking an Associate in its Insurance Transactions team in Washington, DC. This firm gives BigLaw quality work without the BigLaw hours targets. Strong candidates will have at least four years of experience from a strong Insurance team at another law firm.
The firm’s Insurance group works with some of the nation’s largest insurance industry clients in their most important corporate and strategic transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, affiliations, reinsurance, conversions, demutualizations and other restructuring transactions, as well as the regulatory overlays that accompany such matters. The insurance associates work directly with clients, engage meaningfully with insurance industry groups, and join business development opportunities in the early stages of their career.
This law firm is particularly known for its excellent training and support from Partners and you are issued with a Partner mentor to help you transition up into Partnership, if that’s your preferred career path. Associates describe the place as having a ‘midwestern, friendly feel’ and the firm actively encourages a healthy work/life balance.
Big work didn’t necessarily mean big hours. Up to 100 hours of pro bono and 50 hours of DE&I activity can be credited toward the firm’s 1,900 billable hours. We found that associates work about ten hours a day on average, which some felt would allow them to avoid weekend work.
We will require a cover letter and a deal sheet as well as your resume and transcripts for this position.
Candidates must be qualified in the State for which they are applying.
