Time for a change? Come up to the Pacific Northwest and really thrive within a diverse group of lawyers and a power pack of national and international clients. This is a long-established larger firm with an enthusiastic commitment to community endeavors. Here is a real opportunity for professional growth and civic satisfaction for highly qualified, motivated candidates. This is a powerful Pacific Northwest firm and offers associates working here the opportunity to participate in some of the more significant litigation and corporate work in the Pacific Northwest. They are well known for their strong real estate and land use practice, and many of the firm's attorneys who practice in these disciplines are considered recognized leaders in their fields. This firm also has an exceptional bankruptcy practice. This firm also has a diverse client base including large publicly traded corporations as well as closely held businesses and individuals. This firm is considered to have good management, and its management structure is fairly well integrated throughout the firm's offices. They also has a very good and comprehensive orientation for new attorneys which lasts several months. This firm also maintains one of the better law libraries of any firm in the Pacific Northwest. What strikes us about this firm is that it continues to grow and manages to attract a great deal of star talent from firms which, while they may pay more, do not offer the sense of collegiality that this firm offers.
