9.20.3 – Wilkinson Barker Knauer, LLP seeks a senior associate, of counsel, or partner to join its growing privacy/data security and FTC/advertising/consumer protection teams in the D.C. 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 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.

With 65 attorneys, the firm offers clients the capabilities and expertise of a large firm combined with the personal style of a smaller firm. 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. Every attorney is encouraged to be entrepreneurial and to contribute in their own way; we avoid silos, hierarchy, and bureaucracy, and there is no single model for success. WBK has long been committed to community, inclusion, and service. Activities such as volunteerism, civic and community leadership, charitable giving, pro bono work, mentoring, service on nonprofit boards, teaching, and more are actively encouraged and supported.

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. The ideal candidate will bring a strong work ethic, team-oriented ethos, and a healthy, perhaps even irreverent, sense of humor.
