Job Description

The Real Property Practice Group and Land Use team in the Seattle office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP has an exciting opportunity for a senior associate or counsel attorney.  We are seeking an attorney with a minimum of 7 years’ experience with development projects and transactions. Candidates should bring a depth of experience in land use, real estate law, municipal law, permitting, and legislative advice.  The ideal candidate has prior law firm or in-house legal counsel experience and is admitted to practice in Washington State.  This is a great opportunity for a self-motivated individual with a demonstrated ability to handle matters independently and a desire to work with our client teams in more complex projects and transactions.

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 Deverie Hart, Senior Manager, Lawyer Talent Acquisition, a resume, a copy of your law transcript, and a brief writing sample (10 pages max).  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.
