Focal PLLC, a seven attorney firm based in Seattle with a focus on technology, media, and internet law, is seeking an experienced attorney to support our corporate and IP transactions practice groups. Our ideal candidate would have at least 3 years of transactional experience at an established law firm. More experienced practitioners who are looking to achieve a balanced schedule are encouraged to apply.

Strong analytical and drafting skills and a desire to work collaboratively and engage with clients is essential.
