Our client, a Texas-HQ law firm, is searching for a growth hire in its labor and employment team in Fort Worth.
Attorneys in the team often have a very broad practice, and there is an opportunity to get involved on all types of work in labor & employment including employment litigation, employment-related governmental inquiries, daily advice-and-counsel on employment matters, and employment-related portions of corporate transactions.
The firm is headquartered in Texas; as such it takes pride in its fantastic ethos and focus on wellbeing and maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Its Partners and Associates are involved in business development, and are encouraged to be leaders in knowledge management and leading diversity or pro bono initiatives.
One of the key sells of this law firm is that while it pays market rate, it tries incredibly hard to keep away from the ‘BigLaw’ experience – attorneys average 50-hour weeks and Associates are encouraged to fully take their vacation leave and turn off their phones while they are away. Caregiver leave is very generous and the culture is described as ‘kind and considerate, down-to-earth’ and a place where ‘a lot of people have families’.
Candidates must be qualified in Texas. It is preferred that candidates will have labor and employment experience, and civil litigation experience will be a plus.
