McCracken, Stemerman & Holsberry, LLP is actively recruiting. Our clients are primarily international and local unions that represent hospitality workers, grocery workers, firefighters, construction workers and sanitation workers. We serve as UNITE HERE’s legal department and represent UNITE HERE locals throughout the United States, which gives us an opportunity to work collaboratively on innovative and high-stakes organizing and contract-bargaining campaigns. While labor law and the First Amendment are at the core of our practice, we also use other areas of the law from environmental and land-use to election, antitrust, and health-care to accomplish our clients’ goals.
Associates at our firm do everything from contract arbitration to litigation to advising clients on strategy. We give associates as much responsibility and independence as they can handle, and encourage them to develop relationships with our clients.
We are looking for people who share our belief that unions are essential to improving the lives of working people, who want to work hard and creatively to assist our clients, and who are ambitious. The job requires regular travel throughout the United States.
We typically hire people who have strong academic records and have shown a commitment to economic and social justice. People of color and women are strongly encouraged to apply. Federal clerkships are preferred but not required.
