Job Description

Cozen O’Connor is seeking an associate with at least three years of experience defending clients in employment litigation matters to join the firm’s Houston office. Labor relations experience is a plus. The ideal candidate will have extensive experience researching and briefing employment law issues and will be able to demonstrate writing excellence. A strong academic record and Texas Bar membership required.

Our full-service labor and employment department represents a broad range of entities: exchange-listed companies, private enterprises, nonprofits, governments and trade associations. We handle high-stakes employment litigation, including individual and class claims of discrimination, harassment, wage and hour violations, defamation, non-compete violations, and wrongful discharge. We appear regularly before federal and state courts, agencies and departments (such as the EEOC, NLRB, DOL, IRS, OSHA, and ICE), and arbitrators. We also handle traditional labor law matters, helping employers foster positive workplace relations, negotiate collective bargaining agreements, and handle labor arbitrations and unfair labor practice proceedings.
