Boutique entertainment transactional law firm is looking to expand its team with a dynamic, fun, highly motivated attorney to join its digital, TV, music and technology group.

This role involves owning client relationships and the desire and capability to juggle a high volume of diverse projects daily. You will not be doing the same things day in and out (so don't worry if the thought of repeating the same agreements over and over makes you cringe). You'll get to do hands on heavy drafting of varied shapes and sizes, all requiring rapid, yet high quality output, free from typos or errors.
