The Los Angeles office of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP seeks to hire an associate with three to five years’ experience to join its vibrant California and national employment law practice. The ideal candidate will have employment litigation experience and a broad understanding of federal and California employment laws and regulations. We are seeking candidates from large and established defense firms in Southern California or a smaller firm handling sophisticated employment defense matters. The associate’s practice will focus on employment litigation, including single plaintiff and class action matters, and may also include providing advice and counseling to clients concerning employment law issues, drafting policies, handbooks, employment agreements, wage-hour, leave of absences, investigations, and other similar matters.
The candidate must be a member or pending member of the California State Bar. This is a great opportunity for a confident, self-motivated associate with a desire to build a comprehensive employment practice in a collegial environment.
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 Attorney Recruiting, resume, a copy of your law transcript, and a brief writing sample (5 – 10 pages). 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.
