Litigation Associate (San Francisco Office)

Open Position

Litigation Associate (San Francisco Office)


We are seeking a talented junior-level associate attorney to join our growing Litigation practice in our San Francisco Office. The Associate will have the opportunity to assist on a broad range of litigation and to support our Food and Drug regulatory practice.

The ideal candidate will have 3-5 years of experience in Federal and State courts, with experience in one or more areas associated with the firm’s practices such as false advertising, environmental (including Proposition 65), food and drug, occupational health, and safety/employment, product liability and safety, insurance, privacy, and telecom. General commercial litigation and E-Discovery experience are also a plus.

Strong academic credentials; excellent analytical, research, writing, and interpersonal skills; attention to detail; and the ability to assume immediate responsibility are required. General litigation skills are required; experience with Proposition 65 is a plus. 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. Must be a California-barred attorney.

A desire to learn and an ability to manage multiple client priorities and take direction are critical. Successful associate 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.
