My client seeks a 2015 or 2016 grad for a cool Litigation position handling Environmental / Work Place Safety in Houston. This is an ACTION position and not so much sitting at the desk all day. You will focus on major incident response, government inspections and enforcement litigation, internal investigations, and compliance counseling. We prefer experience with environmental, toxic tort or similar experience.
