Job Description

The San Francisco office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP seeks to hire a senior associate with a minimum of six years’ experience for its Employment and Labor practice. The ideal candidate will have experience in employment counseling (including termination and discipline, FLSA, FMLA and strategies for avoiding liability exposure), employment litigation (under federal and state employment laws such as Title VII, ADA, & FMLA), and class action matters. This is a great opportunity for a confident, self-motivated person with a demonstrated ability to handle matters independently and embrace business development. Requirements include excellent academic credentials; communication and writing skills. Active members of the California State Bar preferred; we will consider members of other state bars depending on circumstances.
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 transcript, and a brief writing sample. All replies confidential.
We are accepting submissions from third-party recruiters.
Davis Wright Tremaine LLP believes that embracing diversity and inclusion brings out the best of what each individual has to offer and inspires us to build strong and lasting connections with each other, our clients, and our communities.
We are committed to creating and cultivating a diverse workforce and inclusive environment where every employee has the right to work in surroundings that are free from all forms of unlawful discrimination.  It is our policy to hire, promote, transfer, terminate, and make all employment-related decisions without regard to an employee’s sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, or related medical condition), race, color, ancestry, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, religious creed, age, marital status, physical or mental disability, genetic information, medical condition, military condition, military or veteran status or any other basis prohibited by applicable local, state, or federal laws.
