Job Description

Transactional Associate, Entry to Mid-Level – Berkeley, CA   


Our Berkeley Office is looking for a lawyer who's passionate about Technology, Copyright, Trademark, and Entertainment Law for our growing law firm. 


Do you want to work with startups and other creative enterprises, building their businesses, and protecting their creations? 


Our entrepreneurial law firm is looking for an attorney who can hit the ground running, a team player willing to take ownership, handle direct contact with clients, and is consistent, organized, and incredibly detail oriented.   


Skills and experience are necessary and valued but your personality, character, intelligence, and integrity are just as important. We are looking for attorneys who already have a little experience and are hungry for knowledge. If you are able and willing to learn, we will teach you. We are attentive mentors to our associates. 


We are growing, and you will be called upon to wear many hats. If you think that needing to scan your documents is "beneath you," don't waste our time. Although we are much more laid back than a typical big-law firm, we prioritize our clients, and we won't sell them short or miss deadlines. We value and support work life balance but there are of course reasonable billing minimums you will be expected to reach. 


We have offices in New York and California, and we practice in federal courts all over the country.  


Salary is commensurate with skill and experience. We provide Medical, Dental, Vision, and 401(k) and intend to add additional benefits soon. There will be opportunities for merit bonuses. The Firm also pays for continuing legal education, bar dues, and admissions, and believes that being a lawyer involves constant education and training. If you are not intellectually curious or motivated, don't waste our time. 


To apply, you must know about at least one or two of these law areas: copyright, trademark, privacy, cyberlaw, business formation, entertainment, or other areas of law that are critical to entrepreneurs, creatives industries.   


Although we are hiring for a transactional position, and transactional work should be your fist interest, you can expect to participate in some of our litigation and other adversarial matters.  


Must be admitted to practice in California. For the right candidate, we will consider applicants who graduated from an ABA-accredited law school with admission pending.  


 Tor Ekeland Law, and TorMark Law are equal opportunity employers. We believe that diversity in experiences and backgrounds make us a stronger firm. We believe in providing flexible holiday scheduling to support all religious beliefs. We believe black lives matter. We believe in work-life balance. We believe in supporting families and our communities. We believe in free speech, and equal access to it.  





Company Description

We’re experienced trial, appellate, and business lawyers with a nationally recognized computer law, intellectual property, and criminal defense practice.

These days lots of law firms claim they practice computer or “cyber” law. They tack the word cyber in front of everything and claim to be “cyber” experts. It’s cyber this and cyber that. Every law firm wants to join the cyber law parade. But when you ask one of these “cyber” law firms the difference between a MAC Address and an IP Address you get a blank stare. And you probably get that blank stare in the form of an unencrypted email sent from that law firm’s unsecured server. We’re not that law firm.

We work out of offices in Brooklyn, NY and Berkeley, CA.

Formerly a division of the Alameda County Public Defender’s Office, we became a stand alone non-profit in 2009 establishing a holistic practice advocating for children both in and out of court.  As a multi-disciplinary team of attorneys and social workers, we believe that children should be seen and heard.
