Job Description

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP seeks to hire an employment litigation associate with a minimum of one year of experience to join its vibrant California and national employment law practice. The ideal candidate will have employment litigation experience, particularly class actions and PAGA matters, and a broad understanding of federal and California employment laws and regulations. We are seeking candidates from large and established defense firms in California or a smaller firm handling sophisticated employment defense matters. The associate’s practice will focus on employment litigation, particularly class action and PAGA matters, and some single-plaintiff matters.  
 
The candidate must be a member or pending member of the California State Bar. This is a great opportunity for a confident, self-motivated associate with a desire to build a comprehensive employment practice in a collegial environment. This position will be based out of the Los Angeles office.
 
We are relentlessly committed to client service and look for candidates who share that commitment. At DWT, client service means having empathy for each client’s and each lawyer’s work and personal pressures, business objectives, and legal needs; anticipating their needs; and having the capabilities and commitment to deliver what matters most to them.
