10.21.2 – Wilkinson Barker Knauer, LLP seeks an entry-level associate with zero to two years of experience for its top-tier communications regulatory practice. This position is to begin in fall 2022 and may be resident in our Washington, DC or Denver, Colorado office. WBK specializes in regulatory practice before federal and state agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Patent and Trademark Office, and state public utilities commissions, and in complex transactional matters presenting challenging regulatory issues. Applicants should possess outstanding academic credentials, superb writing ability, excellent analytical skills, and sound judgment. We provide competitive compensation and benefits, excellent partnership prospects, and an enjoyable, good-natured work environment.

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 and support each other personally and professionally using our individual talents and expertise. All attorneys are encouraged to be entrepreneurial and to contribute in their own ways—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.
