Deputy General Counsel for Litigation 

The FTC seeks a qualified candidate for the Deputy General Counsel for Litigation position. The Deputy General Counsel for Litigation oversees OGC’s role in litigation activities, including the preparation of all necessary pleadings, briefing, and oral argument before the courts. He or she leads, trains, and directs a group of attorneys, and reviews their performance. He or she closely supervises the most important or difficult cases and personally argues some of them.

The Deputy General Counsel for Litigation develops close working relations with high-level officials within the agency, within other federal (and state) government agencies, and with other external contacts, including opposing counsel and courts. The FTC’s decisions affect business and industrial practices throughout the nation, and they often implicate complex legal issues. Opposing counsel often rank among the most skilled advocates in the nation, and the incumbent should be equally skilled. Proficiency in appellate litigation is particularly essential.

The incumbent also serves as the FTC liaison officer with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and establishes and implements procedures within the FTC that satisfy requirements mandated by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (Act). The Act requires every recommendation or report on proposals for legislation and other major federal actions that significantly affect the quality of the human environment contain a detailed statement on: (1) the environmental impact of the proposed action, (2) any adverse environmental effects which cannot be avoided should the proposal be implemented, (3) alternatives to the proposed action, (4) the relationship between local short-term uses of the human environment and the maintenance and enhancement of long-term productivity, and (5) any irreversible and irretrievable commitments or resources which would be involved in the proposed action should it be implemented.

Provisions of the Act further bind the incumbent, under the direction of the General Counsel, to consult with and obtain comments of any federal or state agency that has jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to any environmental impact resulting from new legislative proposals or possible spin-off in cases under development. The Act also requires agencies to provide copies of such statements, comments, and views of the appropriate federal, state, and local jurisdictions to the public, which accompany the proposal through the existing agency processes. The FTC sends the special expertise, opinions, or statements together with the incumbent’s review of required statements of proposals to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance, with copies of the material furnished directly to the CEQ.

The Deputy General Counsel’s accountability for the success of assigned programs, projects, or cases encompasses responsibility for the full range of factors that affect program, project, or case success. This includes obtaining the resources necessary to accomplish the work and assuming responsibility for their effective use, and dealing with key officials from within and outside the agency to gain understanding and support for the program, project, or case. The incumbent monitors progress toward organizational goals and makes appropriate adjustments to such goals. The incumbent monitors work status through formal and informal means to evaluate progress toward objectives; assesses overall effectiveness, efficiency, and productivity; identifies, diagnoses, and consults on problem areas related to implementation and goal achievement; and makes decisions on alternative courses of action. The incumbent leads, directs, and oversees, through one or more subordinate supervisors, the work of approximately 10 attorneys plus support staff in accomplishing OGC’s goals and objectives.

Job Requirements

Qualifications:  Qualified candidates must have extensive experience in appellate litigation, with an emphasis on administrative law, competition law, or both; demonstrated excellence in both written and oral advocacy, particularly in the federal courts of appeals; and knowledge and experience in legal areas relevant to the FTC’s work, including administrative law, competition law, and consumer protection law.  Candidates must demonstrate an ability to analyze complex legal issues and questions of litigation strategy, to convey that analysis effectively to senior agency officials, and to work collegially with those officials regarding litigation-related options and their policy implications.

Salary Range: $120,749 to $175,800

How to apply:  To apply submit resume and all other required information, by April 30, 2014.  For complete application instructions go to and refer to Announcement No. OGC-2014-0002.  For additional information, call (202) 326-3696.
