Our client, a truly global law firm, is looking to hire a mid-level or Senior Associate into its market-leading consumer class actions team in San Francisco.
You will represent consumer product manufacturers in litigating consumer class actions that involve allegations of false advertising, consumer deception, and regulatory non-compliance. The position offers the Associate the chance to directly interact with clients and opposing counsel, gain valuable experience from industry leaders, and become a part of a growing global team of subject-matter experts.
Although not obligatory, candidates with experience in a wide range of industries like foods, supplements, cleaning products, technology services, OTC drugs, and personal care/cosmetics are preferred. All candidates should be comfortable communicating directly with clients. Familiarity with topics such as Proposition 65, FDCA, CPSC, slack fill, greenwashing, etc., is considered a significant advantage, but is not a requirement.
The firm has gone from strength to strength in recent years, becoming a truly global, full service firm with the best and biggest clients on its roster.
Though there is a 2000 hours billable target, you can include up to 150 pro bono hours, as well as 50 hours of DE&I initiatives in this. The firm is very hot on diversity initiatives, and is a great place to work for everyone. The culture is great and is the reason people stay so long.
Candidates must be qualified in California.
