Job Description

Stinson LLP seeking a results-oriented commercial litigation associate with at least three years of litigation experience to join our Kansas City office.

Excellent writing, oral advocacy skills, and academics are required. Clerkship and court experience are a plus. The successful candidate should have the following experience and skills:

  • Significant responsibility for pleadings, motions, and briefing on complex matters;
  • Proficiency handling e-discovery and fact development;
  • The confidence to tackle complex fact, legal, and logistical issues with foresight; and
  • The ability to be strategic and analytical.

The role requires a candidate with strong interpersonal skills, a high degree of maturity, a willingness to learn, and a desire to manage a challenging workload on work spanning high-stakes litigation, arbitration, and trial work. We are relentlessly committed to client service and look for candidates who share that commitment.

Stinson has more than 200 litigation attorneys and represents clients in state, federal, tribal and other courts and tribunals throughout the U.S.  We also often resolve matters without litigation by conducting investigations, engaging in pre-suit negotiations and employing alternative dispute resolution procedures such as arbitration and mediation.

Qualified candidates will have at least three years of litigation experience and the ability to handle sophisticated litigation work at a national level. Active Missouri license or eligibility to become admitted to the Missouri bar is required.
