Description:Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is seeking a mid-to-senior associate for its growing national energy law practice to work in any of our offices, with a preference of our Washington, D.C. office. The candidate should have at least two years of FERC-related experience, including experience on electric regulatory matters. Experience with transmission line interconnection, FERC regulation and enforcement matters, and PJM market issues is a plus, but is not required.
The associate will work on electric regulatory matters for a national mix of clients that are working on the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewables. There will be significant opportunities for the associate to develop a future-oriented practice focused on how to address and mitigate the impacts of climate change. The associate will interact directly with senior partners and firm clients, with the goal of taking on responsibility to manage aspects of even complex cases independently. The associate will also be given the training and resources to begin developing their own clients.
Candidates must have a J.D. and local bar membership. Prior law firm experience or employment at FERC is not required but would be very beneficial.
Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is an AmLaw 100 law firm with ten offices nationwide. We are relentlessly committed to client service and look for candidates who share that commitment. At DWT, client service means having empathy for each client's and each lawyer's work and personal pressures, business objectives, and legal needs; anticipating their needs; and having the capabilities and commitment to deliver what matters most to them.
To apply, please upload a cover letter, indicating which office(s) you are applying to, addressed to Marissa Sandoval, Recruiting Specialist, Talent Acquisition; and a resume and law school transcript. Please specify how you heard about this position.
