Working With Us?

Transactional Associate, Entry to Mid-Level – Berkeley, CA

Our Berkeley Office is looking for a lawyer who’s passionate about Technology, Copyright, Trademark, and Entertainment Law for our growing law firm. Do you want to work with startups and other creative enterprises, building their businesses, and protecting their creations? Our entrepreneurial law firm is looking for an attorney who can hit the ground running, a team player willing to take ownership, handle direct contact with clients, and who is consistent, organized, and incredibly detail oriented. Skills and experience are necessary and valued but your personality, character, intelligence, and integrity are just as important. We are looking for attorneys who already have a little experience and are hungry for knowledge. If you are willing to learn, we will teach you. We are attentive mentors to our associates. We are growing, and you will be called upon to wear many hats. Although we are much more laid back than a typical big-law firm, we prioritize our clients, and we won’t sell them short or miss deadlines. We value and support work life balance, but we have reasonable billing minimums you will be expected to reach. TorMark Law and Tor Ekeland Law iare not “big law” but our clients expect premium service from us, and that’s what they get. We have offices in New York and California, and we practice in federal courts all over the country. Salary is commensurate with skill and experience. We provide Medical, Dental, Vision, and 401(k) and intend to add additional benefits soon. There will be opportunities for merit bonuses. The Firm also pays for continuing legal education, bar dues, and admissions, and believes that being a lawyer involves constant education and training. Please apply only if you are intellectually curious and motivated. We will consider candidates with knowledge or experience in at least one or two of these areas of law: copyright, trademark, privacy, cyberlaw, business formation, entertainment, or other areas of law that are critical to entrepreneurs and creatives industries. You don’t need to know all of them, but we prefer an associate is knowledgeable about some. You’ll learn the rest. Although we are hiring for a transactional position, and transactional and advisory work should be your first interest, you can expect to participate in some of the firms’ litigation and other adversarial matters. You might make occasional court appearances on behalf of our litigation clients (which, at least for now, are virtual). Please keep in that mind before you apply. Must be admitted to practice in California. For the right candidate, we will consider applicants who graduated from an ABA-accredited law school with admission pending. If this exciting opportunity appeals to you, we look forward to reviewing your resume. Please follow these instructions. APPLICATIONS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED. Either apply at ZipRecruiter using this link: https://www.ziprecruiter.com/job/79ec9200 OR: Prepare a cover letter explaining why you want to work at TorMark Law and Tor Ekeland Law, and what you can bring to the Firm. As a closing sentence, please write, “I have read the instructions contained in the job posting and have followed the instructions.” Email your resume and a cover letter, all in PDF format, to recruiting@torekeland.com. The subject line of the email should be your last name (all caps), followed by a hyphen and the word “associate,” followed by one word to set your application apart (lower case). For applicants we think might a good fit, our business manager will set up an interview with the Firms’ partners. Tor Ekeland Law, and TorMark Law are equal opportunity employers. We believe that diversity in experiences and backgrounds make us a stronger firm. We believe in providing flexible holiday scheduling to support all religious beliefs. We believe black lives matter. We believe in work-life balance. We believe in supporting families and our communities. We believe in free speech, and equal access to it.
