Duties and Responsibilities
In order to be successful in their litigation and support roles, Associate Attorneys must perform many different tasks. We analyzed several job listings and identified these primary Associate Attorney duties and responsibilities.
Provide Legal Support
Associate Attorneys have to complete extensive case-related research into relevant laws and regulations, negotiate on behalf of clients, draft and interpret contracts and legal documents, and oversee compliance to these documents. They must plan and present arguments and counter-arguments in a court of law.
Maintain Client Relationships
Throughout any legal process, creating and maintaining a good rapport with a firm’s clients is a key task for Associate Attorneys. This includes communicating often and explaining complex legal proceedings and concepts.
Often, Associate Attorneys are responsible for keeping all stakeholders – from their senior colleagues to clients – abreast of the progress of a case by creating reports and communicating verbally.
