Careers

Uniquely Valued

Exclusively focused on litigation and trial work, we seek other fiercely smart, intensely focused professionals to join our talented team.

"In my first three years as an Associate, I had already done what it takes most litigators a decade to accomplish. At Hollingsworth LLP, the opportunity to practice immediately is unparalleled as we try cases and it's a team effort to get there.”

Kathryn S. Jensen
Partner

"I get to work on diverse and challenging cases representing Fortune 500 companies. While the work can be demanding, the opportunity to collaborate with talented professionals, build a strong network, and benefit from the firm’s reputation has definitely contributed to my growth as a lawyer."

Shannon Proctor
Partner

"Hollingsworth LLP has provided me agency not only over the direction of any given case on which I’m working, but also over my practice. Working on complex, multifacted, and diverse cases, and being afforded substantive responsibilities in these cases, has allowed me to learn while also giving me valuable trial experience.”

Pete Chattrabhuti
Associate

"Working at Hollingsworth LLP has been the highlight of my legal career. The Firm is fully committed to Associates’ advancement and I have had the good professional fortune to work on high-profile cases alongside a supportive, talented, and personable team of attorneys who have been instrumental in my growth as a litigator."

As a litigation firm, not a litigation practice within a larger general practice firm, Hollingsworth LLP hires experienced lawyers to join the firm at all levels. Lawyers who have worked at other firms especially appreciate our unique offering that includes rapid advancement in their development of litigation skills, working with clients and opposing counsel, and hands-on participation in the courtroom.

Our practice requires an unusual breadth of writing and oral advocacy skills at trial and appellate levels, and in ADR proceedings. Our cases often involve complex procedural postures and fact patterns that are generally at the cutting edge of scientific or engineering understanding, and usually establish the legal precedents in our various litigation specialties. Since we litigate and try cases nationally, our lawyers must have the ability to relate to a wide variety of judges and jurors in diverse jurisdictions. Our national representation also results in our attorneys publishing extensively and conducting seminars and professional courses on a regular basis.

Recognizing that diversity makes us more interesting, effective, welcoming, and successful, we participate in several law school minority resume review programs including those of the University of Virginia Law School and Georgetown Law. Beginning in 2013, we instituted one-on-one meetings with diversity counselors at law schools, including Georgetown Law and the George Washington University Law School.

Our philosophy to recruit talented self-starters, and our rigorous hands-on training, means that Hollingsworth LLP Associates are equipped to have greater responsibility in the litigation process earlier in their careers than their peers handling similar matters at larger firms. Our Associates are not merely document reviewers, they are practicing attorneys being trained to know the law well enough to have fun practicing it.

If we sound like a good fit for you, please email your resume to our Hiring Partner, Stephen Klein.
