The McGuireWoods Business & Securities Litigation group is equipped to assist all manner of companies, including financial institutions, public companies and closely-held corporations, in all aspects of commercial litigation and dispute resolution.

We coordinate closely with our e-discovery team to efficiently manage the discovery burdens associated with complex litigation. When criminal proceedings run parallel to civil litigation, we work with the firm’s white-collar defense team to manage the client’s interests in a unified manner. While we stand ready to try cases in both federal and state courts, we also explore alternative resolution options when they will help clients achieve their objectives, reduce costs and administrative burdens, and offer creative solutions not typically available through the courts.

Qualified candidates will have 1 - 2 years of general litigation experience or experience as a district or circuit judicial clerk. Excellent academic credentials and writing skills required. TX bar is required. Experience with complex litigation is a plus.

The financial services industry has long been one of the most complex, highly regulated and carefully scrutinized business segments in the world.

Because we understand the business, our financial services litigation team is called upon by some of the world’s most prominent financial institutions to meet these challenges.
