Resume for associate with multiple practice areas?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Feb 01, 2018 12:31 am

I am one of those associates who works for multiple partners in multiple litigation practice areas. I am currently splitting my time and caseload in 3 practice areas. What's the best way to present this on the resume? Separate them under the same firm by different subheading and paragraph? Or just say "Represent clients in X Y Z matters but all lit and do same lit shit etc"? Thanks in advance.

The latter. "Represent clients in a broad range of commercial disputes, including antitrust, securities, and patent litigation."

This. Also, if there is a litigation equivalent of a deal sheet, divide your practice into those three areas and go into specifics on the deal (case) sheet. I am not sure if litigators do that, but in corporate, the resume is more high level and the deal sheet is more "THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I DID ON THIS MATTER."
