    Focal PLLC, a twelve-attorney firm based in Seattle -- with a focus on technology, media, and  internet law -- is seeking a litigation attorney to support our dispute and litigation practice, as  well as grow with our brand protection practice. 

    We are a NAMWOLF member firm and proud of our emphasis on diversity. 

    We are looking for someone with at least 3-5 years of experience. We would consider someone  with more than 3-5 years of experience. 

    While we are fully remote, we are looking for someone who is admitted in Washington and who  can make court appearances as necessary. Admissions in other states are a plus but not  required. 

    We handle a range of dispute and litigation matters, including commercial disputes, data  scraping/aggregation matters, platform liability, copyright and trademark disputes (including in  front of the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board), corporate divorces, cannabis disputes, and  arbitrations. We also handle a range of brand protection matters, including sending takedown  requests, domain name arbitrations, online investigations, and litigation. 

    Our lawyers typically bill between 800-1200 hours per year (as opposed to the typical 1700+  that is required at most firms). 

    We’re looking for someone willing to learn and to build their skills with us. We often work on  novel and interesting legal issues and are looking for someone who thrives on tackling those in  a collaborative manner. Additional skills/experience: 

    Strong writing and editing skills are key. 

    Experience with trademark and copyright disputes, including issuing and responding to  takedowns online and cease and desist letters, is a plus, but not required. 

    Experience in both federal and state courts is preferred but not required. 

    We work in a distributed environment so you need to be comfortable working in this  setting and maintaining excellent communications with team members (e.g., using  Google Docs, Slack, and receiving projects via email, conference calls, etc.). 

    Proficiency in using online tools and basic technology competence (e.g., converting  documents from Google Docs to Word, redacting and Bates numbering PDFs, formatting  pleadings, etc.) is important. We have support staff, but our lawyers should be able to 

    take care of the basics in this regard, if necessary. In a pinch, you should be able to  format and file your own documents. 

    A collaborative, team-focused spirit and desire to provide high-quality legal services with  empathy for both the clients and colleagues. 

    We place a high premium on diversity. Women, people of color, and LGBTQ candidates  are encouraged to apply. 

    Introverts are encouraged to apply. 

    We are proud that Focal fosters a collaborative work environment with legal professionals who  strive to maintain a healthy work/life balance. 

    Salary range: Compensation will depend on hours, as Focal pays a fixed salary along with  hourly-based payments (based on hours worked for the month). The salary range for this  position is $80,000 to $120,000 (assuming 1000 hours billed). 

    Benefits: We provide our employees with health insurance, pay your bar dues, and offer an  opportunity to participate in our individual retirement plan (with matching up to a certain amount)  and flexible PTO. 

    If interested, email (1) a resume (2) cover letter; and (3) writing sample that you primarily  authored to

    Focal is a minority-owned business. We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified  applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion,  gender, national origin, age, genetic information, creed, marital status, sexual orientation,  gender identity, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other protected status as  defined by federal, state or local law. We have a great team and consider ourselves a lifestyle  firm in that we try not to work ourselves to death while at the same time handling sophisticated  and interesting work.
