Real Estate Commercial Litigation Associate

Lester Shaw & Levy LLP (“LSL”) is a growing, full service real estate law firm in NYC that is dedicated to providing the highest level of excellence in service and representation to our clients.
We are looking for a commercial real estate litigator with 6-8 years of experience (candidates with under 6 years of experience with strong litigation experience and qualifications may be considered).  Only applications from attorneys with JD graduation date of 2020 or earlier will be accepted.   Resume and writing sample required.
This role may also provide opportunity to get involved in transactional real estate matters as needed.
LSL is a great option for you if you are:
· Interested in immediately contributing as a key member of an interesting real estate litigation practice, by helping formulate litigation strategy, appearing in court, drafting motions, counseling clients, and being involved in other aspects of litigation work.  RPAPL 881 litigation experience is a plus, but not required.  Our firm handles a variety of real estate transactional and litigation matters, and you will not be pigeonholed into the same matters or clients.
· A self-starter, looking for more ownership over your matters, direct client contact, and substantive work experience
· Looking for a smaller work environment with colleagues you enjoy working with and real-time professional development/mentorship
· Looking for more work-from-home flexibility – we only require attorneys in the office 2 times per week, in our cool office space in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn (easily accessible from Manhattan)
· Looking for more work-life-balance -our bonus structure has incentives based on annual billable hours that are much lower than standard BigLaw requirements
What we bring to the table
· Competitive salary and benefits – estimated salary range is $200K-$250K (depending on experience and other factors) plus discretionary bonus and additional incentives based on billable hours
· Valuable experience and training
· Work/life balance – our bonus incentive structure requires annual billable hours that are much lower than BigLaw
· Interesting and varied work
· Direct client contact
· Significant growth potential
About us
At LSL, we pride ourselves on providing stellar representation and practical counsel to our clients. We don’t do the same thing every day and we are constantly learning, growing and refining. We practice in virtually every legal discipline affecting the real estate industry and offer our clients comprehensive expertise throughout the real estate cycle and in all matters affecting the business of real estate.
