Our Downtown San Diego office is seeking a junior to mid-level (2-4 years) litigation associate to join its Insurance Litigation group.  We represent many of the nation’s largest insurers, including Liberty Mutual, Allstate, Travelers, Allianz, Safeco, Unum/Provident, Fireman’s Fund and Lloyd’s.  The group serves as national counsel on institutional issues and other matters involving significant financial risk, and are also appellate specialists who have contributed to the development of the law in the insurance area.  We seek an associate eager for the opportunity (not available to junior associates in most large firm practices) to take on substantial case responsibility, including taking and defending depositions and arguing motions.  The attorney must already be admitted in California. Candidates must have a strong academic background from a top-tier law school and exceptional writing skills.  The group prefers an associate with ‘big firm’ training or other sophisticated litigation experience who can hit the ground running.  Insurance experience is not required.  Experience in class action defense is helpful but also not required.
