Media & Entertainment Associate - Junior to Mid-Level - Los Angeles
The Los Angeles office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP seeks to hire a junior to mid-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 in a respected law firm, with a preference for experience working on content-related claims, such as copyright, trademark, right of publicity, and/or defamation. Experience 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 excellent academic credentials and strong 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 Bahareh Samanian, Director 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 accepting submissions from third-party recruiters at this time.
