Senior Assistant Attorney General – Consumer Protection  The West Virginia Attorney General’s Office seeks a senior management attorney for its Consumer Protection & Antitrust Division. This Division protects West Virginia consumers through enforcement of the WVCCPA, the WV Antitrust Act, and other related laws. Attorneys work with consumers and companies to resolve complaints, conduct investigations of business practices, and file civil suits on behalf of the State for violations of consumer protection or antitrust laws. The office performs a wide range of work, including issues with local and national impact.

Consumer protection and/or antitrust background is a plus, but the office is also interested in candidates with general litigation or prosecutorial background or with other experience that may be relevant to the Consumer and Antitrust areas, including business, technology, healthcare, construction, privacy, and non-profit work. Candidates should have a commitment to public service.

Candidates must have an active WV license or be eligible for admission and at least eight (8) years of senior management experience, specifically managing attorneys and staff as well as some day-to-day operations in the office. Successful candidates will have experience handling high-profile, complex, and multi-state litigation. Candidates must have an active WV law license or be eligible for admission. The Senior Attorney’s responsibilities will include some supervisory administrative functions, such as the use of time management software to maintain proper records of employee attendance and leave.
