The Corporate and Business Team at Murphy Austin Adams Schoenfeld LLP, located in Downtown Sacramento, works on interesting, meaningful and complex business sales, acquisitions, mergers, restructurings, start-ups, and tax, contract, and business transactions throughout California. We are looking for an associate attorney to join our growing practice group. The successful candidate will have 1-5 years of corporate and business legal experience and a proven record of high academic achievement and will be licensed with the California Bar.
A strong candidate will understand client service and our commitment to meeting expectations and deadlines with high-quality work product. A strong candidate will also have the ability to thoughtfully weigh the pros and cons before making decisions. We are looking for a logical-thinking, project-oriented attorney to assist in transactions from beginning to end. Excellent interpersonal, writing and analytical skills are required. The attorney can expect to work with and alongside partners, associates and paralegals in a team environment.
The candidate should be capable of drafting and reviewing entity formation documents, corporate resolutions, basic contract terms and letters with minimal supervision. With guidance and feedback (particularly on unique aspects of a transaction) the candidate should be capable of reviewing and drafting purchase and sale agreements, LLC operating agreements and similar documents. Tax or accounting knowledge is a plus, but not required.
Murphy Austin offers a competitive salary and benefits package, an associate bonus plan, a professional development program, and a mentoring program. We request that exceptionally well-qualified candidates send a resume, a law school transcript, and writing sample(s), not to exceed 5 pages each (suggested writing samples: a contract, letter, significant email, client-advisory, or a redline showing the changes made to a contract provision) to email@example.com.
