Division Director for the Claims and Civil Litigation Section (Claims)

City and County of Denver, City Attorney's Office

Denver, CO

The posting will close at 11:59 pm on Sunday, September 1, 2019.

The Denver City Attorney's Office (CAO) is searching for a Division Director for the Civil Litigation Section. This position is a valued member of the CAO's senior management team and reports to the Mayor-appointed Deputy City Attorney. The Division Director serves as a trusted legal adviser to senior city officials, including the City Attorney, Deputy City Attorney, city agency and department heads, including mayoral appointees.  The Division Director advises all clients on highly complex litigation issues, including multi-million-dollar high profile civil rights lawsuits.

The CAO is one of the largest public law offices in Colorado, with over 125 attorneys and approximately 115 staff members, including paralegals, victim advocates, and other support staff. The CAO serves as chief legal counsel to all city agencies, departments, offices, boards, commissions and authorities, including the Mayor, the Auditor, the Clerk and Recorder and City Council. The CAO provides a diverse and inclusive work environment in which every person has the opportunity to achieve the highest professional and personal development and is accorded the highest degree of dignity and respect. 

The Division Director has three main roles: (1) Advising the City Attorney, Deputy City Attorney and Department Heads; (2) Engaging with Stakeholders; and (3) Directing and managing the Section.  

Advising the City Attorney, Deputy City Attorney and Department Heads:  The Division Director advises the City Attorney, Deputy City Attorney, agency heads, appointees and elected officials regarding all aspects of civil litigation, administrative law and risk management. A key part of this job will be providing legal advice to such individuals on matters related to public safety, including legal issues impacting the Denver Sheriff's Department and the Denver Police Department. The Division Director helps draft city ordinances and policies relating to risk management, public safety and other areas of concern to the section and collaborates with other CAO section directors to ensure that legal advice provided by the office is consistent and, where appropriate, all areas of potential liability are considered. The Division Director is responsible for overseeing the litigation handled by the section and, at the direction of the City Attorney, may be primarily responsible for handling cases that involve sensitive and/or complex civil litigation issues.   

Engaging with Stakeholders: The Division Director holds a key strategic position in the organization. As a result, he or she may need to engage with city, neighborhood and community leaders to develop creative solutions to emerging issues at the grassroots level. Many times, this task requires difficult discussions in order to develop creative solutions addressing the needs of both the city and its residents.  The Division Director must be able to engage and collaborate with a diverse and vocal community. To accomplish this goal, the Division Director must be able to effectively advise city leaders on community engagement strategies and attend community meetings and forums on behalf of the city, not only to receive input, but also to affirmatively articulate positions on issues important to the city and the CAO.  

Directing and managing the Section: The Division Director oversees a team of approximately 20 attorneys and staff, including a management team consisting of an Assistant Director and an Operational Supervisor.  The Assistant Director and Operational Supervisor directly report to the Division Director.  The Division Director must ensure that all section attorneys adhere to the highest professional and ethical standards.  Additionally, the Division Director must be skilled in the following areas:

  • Leadership and Vision: The Division Director must be able to lead by example and through influence, develop high-performing teams, foster a culture of diversity and inclusion and collaborate with the City Attorney, Deputy City Attorney and CAO senior management team on all matters impacting the CAO and the City.
  • Talent Management: The Division Director must be able to establish professional, high-quality relationships with the management team he or she supervises, as well as team members, provide regular and meaningful feedback to the supervisors under his or her direct supervision, and identify and proactively resolve conflict within the section.  The Division Director shall provide training and professional development opportunities for the Assistant Director, Operational Supervisor and all team members.  The Division Director must be able to effectively partner with the rest of the Section’s management team and/or other Division Directors to work through any challenges and arrive at a positive outcome for the Section’s employees and the CAO overall.
  • Operational and Administrative Competence: The Division Director oversees the Section’s business operations, including, hiring, discipline, budgeting and annual evaluations. The Division Director helps to develop and execute the vision and direction of the Section.
  • Investment in Organization: The Division Director actively participates in and promotes organizational and Mayoral priorities such as Peak Performance, employee engagement initiatives, the CAO's action plans and other department policies and initiatives.  The Division Director must be the champion for ongoing process improvement in the Section.

JOB RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Advises the City Attorney, Deputy City Attorney, department heads and other mayoral appointees and elected officials regarding all aspects of civil litigation, civil procedure, administrative law and risk management.
  • Develops internal procedures and standards for the Section as a whole and ensures compliance with best practices.

  • Oversees work assigned by the Section to outside counsel to ensure quality outcomes and fiscal responsibility.
  • Develops and maintains effective external and internal stakeholder relationships, including those with the courts.
  • Advises city leaders on community engagement strategies and attends community meetings and forums on behalf of the city to receive input, as well as to affirmatively articulate positions on issues important to the city and the CAO.
  • Oversees and ensures compliance with Colorado Open Records Act requests assigned to the Section.
