Company: GuideOne Insurance
Location: Memphis
Posted on: February 15, 2019

Job Description:

GuideOne Insurance was founded upon a commitment to social responsibility. GuideOne is different from other, more traditional insurance companies. We exist to serve the needs of religious organizations, educational institutions, small businesses, and nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to making the world a better place. We are growing and would like to add a skilled Litigation Counsel to our team. This individual will defend cases in the state of Tennessee, potentially obtain a law license to defend cases in Mississippi or Alabama, and also manage outside counsel in Kentucky. Our ideal candidate will be a self-starter, highly organized, focused, detail-oriented, and willing to travel for single-day trips and occasionally overnight. The position requires technical proficiency and experience defending bodily injury, personal injury, first-party property damage, wrongful death, insurance coverage, and extra-contractual litigation. Our legal department guides and protects the company-and serves our members-by making informed business and legal decisions based on current data and relevant information. The legal department must be vigilant and dedicated to serving our goals and adhering to our brand values. Litigation Counsel Responsibilities:

  • This position will support cities throughout Tennessee and frequent travel, with occasional overnight stays, should be expected.

  • The candidate must be able to competently present a controversy from inception through trial while maintaining the independent professional judgment required of a lawyer.
  • The position involves a busy, fast-paced, full practice with a mix of commercial property, coverage, and personal injury (including catastrophic injury and wrongful death) cases representing individuals as well as corporate and nonprofit entities.
  • A physical office will be provided to the successful candidate in a convenient location.
  • $95,000 to $110,000 salary range, commensurate with experience. The Litigation Counsel must possess the requisite experience, skill, and judgment required to represent the interests of GuideOne and its policyholders with little or no direct supervision. The individual will demonstrate expertise with a variety of legal concepts, practices, and procedures while relying upon his or her experience and judgment to plan and accomplish job responsibilities and goals. A wide degree of creativity and focus is expected. Requirements:
    • Licensed or eligible to practice law in Tennessee.
