Job Details

Downey Brand is seeking an associate with 3 to 7 years of experience to join its Natural Resources Practice Group in San Francisco. This position involves representation of public and private-sector clients statewide in a broad range of land use, environmental, energy, and water matters.

The candidate should have significant experience in either (1) environmental and land use litigation (including preparation of administrative records, writs, or law and motion practice); or (2) administrative enforcement, permitting, regulatory compliance, or environmental transactional matters. Knowledge in the areas of CEQA, NEPA, Clean Water Act, Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act, endangered species, land use, public agency law, or energy is desired. A background in general civil litigation in federal or state court is also helpful.

The ideal candidate will have strong interpersonal and communication skills, excellent analytical skills, and an attention to detail. The candidate should be a self-starter who enjoys accepting significant client and matter responsibilities and challenging natural resources assignments within a legislative and regulatory landscape that is ever changing. A distinguished academic record, as well as exceptional research and writing skills, are required. Associate salaries are based on years of experience and bonus consideration is given for productivity and performance. The candidate must be a current and active member of the California State Bar.

With one of the state’s largest natural resources practices, Downey Brand has built a solid reputation as a leader in water, environmental, and natural resources law. Its attorneys counsel clients on compliance strategies and regularly appear at trial and on appeal in some of the most complex resources disputes in the west.

Please address cover letter, resume, law school transcript and a brief, recent writing sample to Maureen Cooper, Recruiting Director.

Downey Brand LLP is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. No telephone calls or e-mail applications, please. Principals only. All inquiries will be held in confidence.
