Top 3 Cool Jobs This Week: Putting Your Tax LLM to Use

By Jonathan R. Tung, Esq. on July 08, 2016 12:59 PM

For those attorneys who braved additional legal training beyond the three years in law school, we've decided to give you guys a little love. Fear not, your LLM may not turn out to be another case of "lawyer losing money."

As part of our affiliate partnership with Indeed, here are this week's three coolest, tax themed legal jobs. For the rest of our lawyer brethren who can't stand tax -- close your eyes and look away. Viewer discretion is advised.

RJS Law, a Tax Law Firm: Tax Litigation Associate

If you really have a passion for tax (or self inflicted-punishment) you may want to pursue this tax litigation associate position in San Diego.

You'll need a minimum of three years of civil/tax litigation experience. You have to be comfortable in both federal and state courts. You'll be conducting motion practice, performing depositions, and engaging in discovery. In other words, you'll be working as a lawyer. If you have an LLM in tax, you'll be even more desirable to the firm.

If you want this position, remember to follow the instructions. Send your CV and CL to Chandra Diep at the contact link provided.

Farrell and Patel: Attorney Tax and Financial Analysis

One thing that should strike you about this position is that it's not a lawyers-only position. Anyone who can show an educational background in finance could be a potential hire, so if you're already an MBA-holder or indeed only a BS-holder in accounting, you should check this Florida position out.

From what we can tell, an LLM would definitely help. You'll be responsible for researching the latest and greatest in relevant tax statutes. You'll be asked to draft pleadings, motions and help perform financial analysis. Again, if you love tax, you'll love this position. LLMs and CPAs, apply.

Kundra & Associates: Tax Attorney

This Rockville, Maryland firm's job listing is a little thin on the job description, but we do know that they're looking for a tax attorney who has at least two year's law firm experience. Their preference is that you have your license in D.C. or Maryland, but they'll consider other states too. You also must have an LLM for this position. And from what we can tell, there will be a lot of heavy client communication at this job.

Go forth and get employed.
