Job Description

The Los Angeles office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP seeks to hire a junior-level associate to join its nationally recognized media & entertainment practice. We work with production companies, studios, networks, streaming services, and other content creators and distributors to get their content made and protect that content from claims - ensuring they can exercise their free expression without undue restraint. We are looking for a dedicated and passionate attorney to join our growing team. The ideal candidate will have a minimum of one year of litigation experience. Experience litigating copyright or trademark claims and/or providing clearance or counseling services to media and entertainment clients is a plus, but not required.  A sense of humor and the ability to work as part of a team are definitely required. Former law clerks are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates must be active members of the California Bar in good standing, and possess strong academic credentials and writing skills.  

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 submit your cover letter addressed to Deverie Hart, Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition, resume, copy of law school transcript, and a writing sample (10 pages max). We would appreciate you specifying how you heard about this position. We are not accepting submissions from third-party recruiters at this time.

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP embraces diversity, equity and inclusion.  It 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.
