    SEATTLE Premier Law Firm Seeks 2nd or 3rd Year Lateral Associate:  This law firm is a highly esteemed and successful boutique, originally founded by partners from a top, Seattle based, global law firm.  The firm practices in a niche area of extremely legally sophisticated, complex litigation (practice area to be discussed with well-qualified, interested candidates).  However, applicants need not have experience in this niche. 

     

    The successful candidate for this position will be a personable and very highly skilled, 2nd or 3rd year complex litigation associate currently employed with an AmLaw 200 (or equally well-regarded smaller firm).  Applicants must possess stellar academic credentials and have an interest in practicing particularly complex and legally sophisticated “large law” type litigation in a smaller firm environment.  The hiring law firm is unique in its reputation for being truly collegial, and offering both top of the market compensation and genuine work/life balance.  Out of state candidates and exiting federal clerks are welcome to apply.

    All inquiries regarding this opportunity will be handled in strict confidence and should be directed (with resume or link to current law firm bio) to Lynda Jonas, Esq., Placement Director, at ljonas@legalease.com.
