Job Summary: Berenson LLP is the nation’s leading law firm specializing in the remodeling and home improvement sector, serving as special and general counsel to a diverse industry client base throughout the United States, including big box retailers, national and regional remodeling manufacturers, dealers and finance companies. The position will increasingly entail mentoring and managing existing staff attorney projects. An excellent understanding of client management and business acumen is required.
The position requires a minimum of 15 years of extensive national experience in the defense of employment matters, transactional disputes, consumer class actions, government audits, commercial and contract litigation. Public speaking experience is helpful. This candidate's practice would include the representation of national, regional and local remodeling contractors, manufacturers, franchisors, finance companies and other industry- specific entities on a very diverse variety of projects.
Candidate must possess a very strong work ethic, confidence, a good sense of humor and a collaborative attitude. Must enjoy aggressively attacking a variety of legal challenges individually and in groups and dealing with colorful clients. We are a small, entrepreneurial law firm, with over 30 years of industry-leading visibility and an industry-wide reputation for excellence without question. If you desire a job, we are not for you. We are looking for a senior partner seeking a career to establish his or herself as a recognizable industry expert and manager within our firm.
Pre-existing knowledge of the remodeling or home improvement industry and how it operates is very helpful, but not necessarily required.
A minimum of 15 years of extensive national experience.
An ability to grasp client concerns and communicate confidence and excellence. Unlike many firms, our clients will be with us tomorrow, after a case is over, so an understanding of the business ramifications of litigation and disputes are necessary.
Excellent communication skills for an often “blue-collar” clientele.
Results-driven with a strong strategic focus and an ability to think outside the box.
Must be able to manage your own time – we value quality of life as much as we value our reputation, but this requires the ability to manage one’s workload effectively given the flexibility we allow our attorneys to have.
Annual salary and override compensation will be discussed with potential candidates and is based upon level of experience and performance.
