Our client, a global law firm known for its strong client relationships and excellent culture, is looking to hire a mid-level Associate (class of 2019-2020) in its complex commercial litigation team in Los Angeles.
The team is located across the US and works closely with the Asian and London offices. The team focuses on complex commercial litigation, antitrust and trade regulation, restrictive covenants and trade secrets and securities litigation. They have successfully represented clients in all facets of litigation, trial, and arbitration. The team represents clients in contract disputes, financial services lawsuits, class actions, securities suits, fraud, theft of trade secrets, and business torts.
Attorneys in the team often have a very broad practice, and there is an opportunity to get involved on all types of matters within other areas of disputes, including white collar crime and government investigations.
This law firm is particularly known for its excellent training and support from Seniors. There is no hierarchy – whereby Partners respect associates and they let you have the responsibility of getting the right level of work that they think you are ready for. Associates describe the place as having a ‘midwestern, friendly feel’ and the firm actively encourages a healthy work/life balance. It is a great step towards an international firm without losing its ‘small-firm’ feel. Everyone truly knows everyone here – even across countries.
Candidates must be qualified in California.
