Employment Associate - Mid-Level - Los Angeles or San Francisco
Davis Wright Tremaine LLP seeks to hire an employment litigation associate with a minimum of three years' experience to join its vibrant California and national employment law practice. The ideal candidate will have employment litigation experience 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, including single plaintiff and class action matters, and may also include providing advice and counseling to clients concerning employment law issues, drafting policies, handbooks, employment agreements, wage-hour, leave of absences, investigations, and other similar 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 can be based out of the Los Angeles or San Francisco 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.
To apply, please upload a cover letter addressed to Bahareh Samanian, Director of Lawyer Recruiting, resume, a copy of your law school transcript, and a brief writing sample (10 pages max). We are currently accepting submissions from third-party recruiters.
