The Employment & Trade Secret Litigation team at Wilson Sonsini has a uniquely broad practice. On any given day, you might work on bet-the-company litigation, an internal investigation, or advise on a spin-out merger. We are not the place to work for a cookie-cutter employment department; it’s an exciting, varied, and collaborative practice working with innovative clients ranging from early-stage startups to Fortune 500 companies in technology, life science, green energy, and cleantech. 

Our Employment & Trade Secret Litigation Group is excited to welcome qualified applicants with 2 years of experience exclusively in management-side employment law litigation and counseling.  The ideal candidate will have worked on several employment litigation cases, and have experience providing day-to-day advice to clients on various aspects of employment law (e.g., terminations, leaves of absence, reductions in force, policy review and creation) and employment mobility issues (trade secrets, non-competes, and employee solicitation), and will also have experience advising clients on employment-related matters in mergers and acquisitions and other corporate transactions.  The candidate must be a member of the New York Bar and will be resident and physically present in our New York office. In addition, the candidate must have excellent academic credentials and oral, written, and interpersonal skills.
