    Bankruptcy Associate

    About Stoel Rives and the Corporate Team 
    Our Corporate team consists of over 70 lawyers who focus on all areas of corporate law representing both public and private entities at all stages of formation and growth. Our clients are engaged in energy production and distribution, agribusiness, healthcare, computer technology, life sciences solutions, aerospace technology, timber and forest products, mining, retail and manufacturing. We develop a deep understanding of the strategic objectives of these businesses to enhance our ability to plan and execute transactions for our clients. The variety of industries reflects the diversity of public and private companies launching, growing and operating across our footprint.  

    If you are interested in working with a group of collaborative, hard-working, and dedicated lawyers and staff, this is the place for you.

    Like all of the firm’s practice groups, the Corporate team at Stoel Rives greatly values diversity. In 2022, fifty-five percent of Corporate attorneys identify as diverse (women, racial/ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ lawyers and lawyers with disabilities). Sixty-seven percent of new attorney hires and seventy-five percent of the newly promoted CORP partners identify as diverse. We recognize that we need to continue to improve our diversity through listening, learning and being open to change. 


    Role Overview
    The Corporate group of Stoel Rives LLP is seeking an associate attorney with 1-5 years of experience to join its nationally-recognized business bankruptcy and restructuring law practice. Although many members of the Bankruptcy group sit in our Seattle office, we will also consider applicants to sit in our Portland office.  The ideal candidate will have law firm experience representing clients in chapter 11 bankruptcies and state court receiverships. The Bankruptcy Associate will have the opportunity to work on sophisticated legal matters, including representing financial and trade creditors and other significant stakeholders across a wide range of industries in bankruptcy cases in the Pacific Northwest and throughout the U.S. The Bankruptcy Associate will also assist commercial parties with formulating creative solutions to resolve significant commercial disputes using the Bankruptcy Code and or applicable state law.

    Members of our team can expect to benefit from working with clients on mid-market and larger bankruptcy and creditor-debtor matters. Attorneys in this role often interface with colleagues across offices and practice groups. The Bankruptcy Associate will produce polished documents and work collaboratively with other members of the Bankruptcy group in advising clients on bankruptcy, insolvency, and restructuring matters. 

    Skills Needed to Be Effective in This Role
    We pride ourselves in forming diverse teams with a wide array of interpersonal and professional attributes. We don’t expect one human to embody all of these skills, but if you have many of these skills, and are enthusiastic to learn, we encourage you to apply. 

    Experience with, or interest in, bankruptcy and creditor-debtor matters, including a basic knowledge of the Bankruptcy Code, key bankruptcy documents, and Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code;

    Excellent analytical, interpersonal, and communication skills, including exceptional legal research and writing skills;

    Strong intellectual curiosity and a desire to understand how to develop a representation strategy that advances client goals;

    A commitment to client service and team success; and

    A JD from an accredited university.

    Stoel Rives: Part of Our Team
    A broader question you may have is, “How will this position enhance my legal skills and career trajectory?” At Stoel Rives, we offer a unique lateral integration program and core competency model that are designed to provide a roadmap of the practical skills, abilities, and client service techniques our lawyers need to succeed and progress at the firm. We also established a New Lawyer Integration Program that has deepened our relationships and connections with our new lawyers, while providing them with the mentoring, resources, and information necessary for success.

This information is provided per Washington’s Equal Pay and Opportunities Act. This salary range is based on market location.

    In addition to base compensation, Stoel Rives has a total rewards program that includes an annual discretionary bonus and rich benefits offerings.  For example, our benefits offerings include paid family & medical leave (and an on/off-ramp program for expecting parents), unlimited PTO, a flexible schedule program, remote work options, and a sabbatical program for eligible attorneys.  We also offer competitive and robust medical, dental, vision, life, long-term disability, AD&D, EAP, FSA, and Voluntary Life, ADD, and LTC options.  We also provide a generous firm-contributed health savings account and a pre-tax transportation/parking plan.  To help meet billable hour expectations, we also allow up to 50 hours of billable credit for diversity, equity, and inclusion-related activities, as well as an additional up to 50 hours for pro bono activities.  

    We are also proud participants of the ABA Well-Being Pledge, strongly believing that the well-being of our employees is paramount to the success of the firm.
