Summary: Rochester, New York has in-house litigation openings available on LawCrossing.

Litigation involves preparing civil cases for trial, and, if the case does not settle before trial, conducting the trial itself. To be a successful in-house litigation attorney, one must create the strongest legal theories for a client and then work hard to gather evidence to support those theories.


Some litigation attorneys specialize in one area of law, such as personal injury law or civil construction law, but others practice in multiple areas of law. All litigation attorneys must have strong oral advocacy skills, excellent writing skills, and must be able to work with clients, witnesses, and opposing counsel. It is imperative that litigation attorneys have outstanding negotiation skills, as it is often possible to obtain favorable settlements for clients without having to go to trial.

Litigation attorneys obtain evidence by discovery requests, which are requests for documents and answers to questions (called interrogatories) that are sent to opposing counsel. These requests can cover communications, photos, medical records, or any other document needed in a case. Depositions of witnesses may also be taken during the discovery phase. Numerous motions may be filed in a case before a trial, and after trial, either party may file an appeal.

Most litigators work in private law firms, although some work in-house for corporations, financial institutions, insurance companies, or other entities. A few may work in government offices as well.
