Position(s) I am Applying for

Energy Attorney – Counsel or Of Counsel – Washington D.C., New York, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Anchorage, or Bellevue

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is seeking a counsel or of counsel attorney for its growing national energy law practice to work from the Washington D.C., New York, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Anchorage, or Bellevue offices. The candidate should have at least eight years of FERC-related experience, including experience on electric regulatory matters. Experience with FERC natural gas rate cases and certificate matters, NERC regulation and enforcement matters, and hydroelectric licensing and project development is a plus, but is not required.  

The counsel will work on an exciting variety of FERC electric regulatory matters for a nation-wide mix of clients and will therefore be asked to work primarily East Coast business hours. They will interact directly with clients with the goal of taking on responsibility to manage complex cases independently and helping transition matters from other senior attorneys. They will also be given the training and resources to begin developing their own clients, if desired.  

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. 

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is an AmLaw 100 law firm with eight offices nationwide. 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, indicating which office(s) you are applying to, addressed to Michael Nguyen, Director Talent Acquisition; and a resume. Please specify how you heard about this position.

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.
