Candidates should be licensed to practice in Washington or Oregon or be willing and eligible to sit for the Washington or Oregon Bar.

Job Responsibilities:

Successful candidates will be responsible for assisting in all aspects of litigation and administrative charge work, including preparing position statements, evaluating claims, handling mediation, taking depositions, engaging in motion practice, and preparing for and taking cases to arbitration and trial. The position may also be responsible for working with senior attorneys to counsel HR professionals and business executives on compliance with federal, state, and local employment laws and providing strategic thinking in avoiding and resolving employment disputes. The title of the position and duties will depend on experience, qualifications, and book of business.
