Job Description

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP is seeking a junior or mid-level associate for its growing national energy law practice to work in its New York or Washington, D.C. office. The candidate should have at least two years of FERC-related experience, including experience on electric regulatory matters.  Experience with FERC natural gas rate cases and certificate matters, NERC regulation and enforcement matters, and hydroelectric licensing and project development is a plus, but is not required. For the candidate interested in our New York office in particular, experience with regulation under the New York Public Service Law and proceedings before the New York PSC is a strong plus.  

The associate will work on electric regulatory matters for a nation-wide mix of clients.  The associate will interact directly with 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 is a plus.  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 eight 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 Morgan Dufault, Lawyer Recruiting Manager; resume, and law school transcript. Please specify how you heard about this position.

We are accepting submissions from third-party recruiters.

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP embraces diversity, equity and inclusion. It brings out the best of what each individual has to offer and inspires us to build strong and lasting connections with each other, our clients, and our communities.
