Wilkinson Barker Knauer, LLP, a Tier 1 communications and technology law firm with offices in Washington, D.C. and Denver, Colorado, seeks a senior associate, of counsel, or partner to join its growing privacy/data security and FTC/advertising/consumer protection teams in the Washington office. The ideal candidate will have at least 5 years of experience advising clients or working in federal or state government on consumer protection issues. Our practice is a unique hybrid of compliance/enforcement defense and policy advocacy; candidates should have excellent oral and written communication skills, and be as comfortable drafting a detailed legal brief as engaging in conversations with Capitol Hill and federal agency staff. WBK lawyers must be flexible and creative, adapting to provide the highest quality service to both Fortune 50 companies and tiny start?ups. We welcome candidates from either the private or public sector; WBK has substantial experience onboarding those leaving government service for private practice. Experience specific to the communications and technology sector is a plus, but not required.
WBK is a special place to practice law; we mean it when we say we are #notjustanotherlawfirm. With 65 attorneys, the firm offers clients the capabilities and expertise of a large firm combined with the personal style only a smaller firm can deliver. Each day, we work together for both the common good of the group and the common goal of building and maintaining a nationally recognized legal practice. We highly value collaboration, supporting each other personally and professionally using our individual talents and expertise. Every attorney is encouraged to be entrepreneurial and to contribute in their own way; there is no single model for success. We avoid silos, hierarchy, and bureaucracy, working as a team to deliver results. WBK has long been committed to community, inclusion, and service, with attorneys and staff devoting substantial time and energy to volunteerism, civic and community leadership, charitable giving, pro bono work, mentoring, service on nonprofit boards, teaching, and more. These activities are not just permitted but actively encouraged and supported at WBK.
To sustain and enhance these unique firm qualities, we seek candidates who have balanced excellence in law school and career achievements with a personal commitment to advance the legal profession and serve the broader community. WBK is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of gender, age, racial or ethnic background, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, or veteran status. The ideal candidate will also bring a strong work ethic, team-oriented ethos, and a healthy, perhaps even irreverent, sense of humor. We look forward to meeting you.
