Job Description

The Washington, D.C. office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is seeking a mid-level associate, senior associate, or counsel for its growing national energy law practice. The candidate should have at least five years of FERC-related experience, including experience on natural gas rate cases and certificate matters.  FERC electric rate-making and hydroelectric licensing experience is a plus, but is not required.

The associate or counsel will work on natural gas pipeline rate and certificate cases for a nation-wide mix of clients.  He or she will interact directly with clients with the goal of quickly taking on responsibility to manage aspects of even complex cases independently.  He or she will also be given the training and resources to begin developing their own clients.

Candidates must have a J.D. and local bar membership is a plus.  Prior law firm experience or employment at FERC is not required, but would be very beneficial.

To apply, please upload a cover letter addressed to Lauren Zimmer, Lawyer Recruiting Manager; resume; and law school transcript. Please specify how you heard about this position.

We are accepting submissions from third-party recruiters.
