AT&T is looking for an attorney to help support AT&T’s Public Sector and FirstNet segment with focus on sales to the Department of Defense and related national security associated agencies. 

Incumbent will have 3+ years of government, firm, or in-house experience providing relevant legal advice and counsel about federal procurement, e.g., acquisition, protests, contract formation, vendor or supplier relationships, Federal Acquisition Regulation advice, cost accounting standards counsel, and ethics or civil/criminal False Claims Act, internal, or whistleblower investigations or litigation.

An interest in telecommunications, cyber-security, law enforcement, or other national security telecommunications experience, would be a plus. 

The candidate must have or be capable of obtaining Top Secret/SI Security Clearance. 

The position is based in Columbia, Maryland, requiring approx. 3 days/week in office and/or meeting in person with government agency counsel located in the greater DC area, with the remaining days working remotely.

This is a non-supervisory position; the candidate will be working closely with a more experienced AT&T attorney to develop proficiency.  The ideal candidate will have a relentless passion for learning and collaborating with a desire to expand upon existing legal advising and counseling experience.
