Food and Drug Associate (San Francisco)

Open Position

Food and Drug Associate (San Francisco)


We are seeking a talented junior level associate attorney with 2-4 years of experience to join our growing Food and Drug regulatory practice in our San Francisco Office.  Work will include advising clients on food packaging, food, food additive, food labeling, and food safety matters under FDA and USDA jurisdiction; establishing appropriate regulatory status for various ingredients; and assisting with Proposition 65 compliance and defense.    

Strong academic credentials; excellent analytical, research, writing, and interpersonal skills; attention to detail; and the ability to assume immediate responsibility are required.  Due to the technical nature of the practice, an undergraduate degree or some experience in a scientific field (biology, chemistry, mathematics, or engineering) will be helpful, but is not required.  Experience with Proposition 65 and Litigation also a plus.  Must be a California barred attorney. 

A desire to learn, and an ability to manage multiple client priorities and take direction are critical.  Successful associates will be given significant client responsibility early on, including direct client contact.  The position requires collaboration across all firm offices on challenging and interesting work involving cutting-edge regulatory and health and safety issues while working in a collegial, team-based atmosphere.

Fluency in Spanish a plus.

We offer an excellent benefit package, bonus plan, and salary commensurate with experience. E.O.E.
