_There is a reason that Clark is a leader in the construction industry. Simply put, it's our people. You can play a critical role in the future of our cities and communities with a career at Clark Construction. From monuments and museums, to stadiums, hospitals, universities, highways, hotels and more, Clark has shaped America's skyline for over a century. Our work leaves a lasting legacy; the same goes for our people. We owe our success to the leadership, talent, and drive of our employees. With a wide range of opportunities from management, to finance, to engineering and more, explore the many ways to grow your career and build your own legacy at Clark._ _Come be a part of our team, today!_

Clark seeks an experienced litigator to play a critical role in managing, resolving, and avoiding disputes. Reporting directly to one of the Senior Vice Presidents who jointly lead Clark's Legal Department, the successful candidate will handle a range of complex commercial and regulatory litigation, including high-profile matters involving significant financial or reputational risk to the company. He or she will serve as a partner to leaders across the business and build effective relationships with outside counsel.

Clark would prefer to locate the position at its headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland, but would consider a candidate near one of its regional offices, located strategically in major cities across the nation.


+ Manage Clark's activities in court and arbitration, including litigation and settlement strategies, and managing outside counsel.

+ Serve as a strategic issue spotter for the business, identifying risks and opportunities early, positioning issues favorably, objectively, and accurately assessing strengths and weaknesses, and minimizing or resolving disputes where possible.

+ Spearhead initiatives to prevent litigation against the company by identifying structural and process improvements and providing professional training on risk mitigation across the organization.

+ Assist with internal or government investigations.

+ To the extent desired, work across Clark's Legal Department to gain exposure to Clark's construction contracts and subcontracts, corporate governance issues, and related work.


In addition to a JD with strong credentials and membership in good standing with a state bar, the successful candidate will have:

+ Litigation Expertise - At least seven years of litigation experience, including experience assessing legal, reputational, and business risk in difficult and high-stakes situations under acute time pressure. Experience with construction and/or government contracts is an advantage, but not necessary.

+ Leadership Capacity - A proven leader with the demonstrated ability to coordinate strategy and drive effective collaboration among senior executives, project teams, and outside counsel.

+ Mission Orientation - A dedicated team member with a passion to continue the success of a longstanding institution and the mentality to lead solutions to the most challenging disputes a multi-billion-dollar for-profit enterprise faces.

+ Intellectual Horsepower and Curiosity - A quick study who can climb a learning curve with speed, who provides a forward-thinking and creative assessment of risk and opportunities, and who continuously strives for professional growth.

+ Capability to Influence - An outstanding communicator who can explain complex issues clearly, work effectively with Clark's most senior leaders, navigate challenging conversations with others at all levels of the organization, and persuade internal and external stakeholders without "breaking glass."
