Lateral Link Exclusive Job of the Week – May 22, 2019


Larson O’Brien LLP – Los Angeles

About the Firm:

This litigation boutique focuses primarily on handling complex commercial and white-collar cases, regulatory matters, appeals, and international disputes.  Larson O’Brien routinely takes cases to trial because they have fewer conflict issues and often use flexible alternative fee arrangements. Since 2016, the firm has grown to 25 lawyers and would like to reach 40 lawyers in the next 3 to 4 years.

Larson O’Brien provides a great cultural environment with a very casual and collegial feel. The firm represents many high-profile clients, offers competitive pay and requires only 2000 hours to be eligible for a bonus.

There is substantial opportunity at this firm to handle significant responsibilities at a very early stage in your career as each case is typically staffed very leanly – e.g., only one partner/senior attorney 1-2 junior attorneys.  For example, junior associates routinely are able to independently argue substantive motions in federal cases.

The successful candidate will have a unique opportunity to work hands-on with some of the premier litigators in town on matters that actually go to trial.
