  • Leading simple and complex litigation matters from inception to completion
  • Developing an end-to-end dispute resolution and mitigation platform involving independent contractor real estate agents
  • Supervising outside counsel to decrease spend and achieve desired results
  • Delivering strategic advice with respect to complex dispute matters to senior leaders
  • Analyzing judicial and legislative developments and structuring and implementing strategies and policies/procedures to mitigate legal risk
  • Managing litigation budgets and associated forecasting and reporting requirements

What We’re Looking For:
