Metropolitan Transportation Commission is seeking a Senior Counsel.
The Senior Counsel is a career position well suited to an accomplished legal professional with a strong commitment to public service. We are looking for an attorney with good judgment, flexibility, a cooperative approach with other members of the office and agency staff, and a willingness to dive in and learn new areas of law as needed. The new Senior Counsel will be expected to exercise independent legal judgment and interact with staff and Commission members directly, with support and coordination from the General Counsel and other members of the office. OGC staff frequently provide advice and consultation to each other, particularly on new or thorny issues. We also have a bench of outside counsel available where particular expertise is required.
The General Counsel’s Office is a fast-paced and exciting environment where attorneys provide comprehensive legal services to the agency and often deal with novel legal issues. Dedication to public service, a strong work ethic, solid analytical skills, creativity, flexibility, judgment, and strong emotional intelligence are essential. The successful candidate will be perceptive, confident and a consummate team-player. Generalists or specialists who are willing to learn new areas are welcome! We encourage senior-level attorneys from a variety of backgrounds to apply.
