Litigation Associate | Latitude Legal

Litigation Associate

Back to opportunities

Are you an associate who loves to litigate, but is exhausted by untenable billing requirements and the need to be constantly available? Are you ready to spread your wings and run cases independently, unencumbered by multiple layers of oversight? If so, Latitude has an amazing opportunity for a junior associate to move to a sophisticated, small law firm that values great work, good results for clients, and healthy work habits over billable-hour quotas.

If you want the chance to practice with experienced, thoughtful lawyers who prioritize their colleagues and clients, while still maintaining a healthy and active life outside the office, this is the place for you.  Latitude is looking for a junior associate with 1-3 years of litigation experience who has great writing skills, a desire to be in the courtroom, and the confidence and practical know-how to run with their own cases. In this position, you will handle a variety of litigation matters in both state and federal courts for sophisticated clients, but you will not be expected to be available at all hours of the day and night. The firm is looking for an attorney who is looking to flex their autonomy muscles, while still appreciating feedback and casual mentoring from more experienced attorneys among the team.

This position offers young litigators a rare opportunity to focus on excellent work, client service and skills/career development, without battling the constant pressure to bill 2000+ (or even 1800) hours a year.

Requirements for Litigation Associate:

  • 1-3 years of civil litigation experience
  • Outstanding writing skills
  • Self-motivated worker who thrives when given independence
  • Desire to receive feedback and mentoring
  • Licensed to practice law in Tennessee
  • Outstanding references

Position Details for Litigation Associate:

  • Type of role: Permanent
  • Schedule: Full-time
  • Location: Nashville, TN
  • Compensation: Commensurate with experience
