Do You Want to Work With Bona Law?
We have an active and growing practice and are looking for new people to join our team.
Are you are an outstanding attorney with great writing skills that takes serving clients seriously? Do you want to contribute to an atmosphere where finding the best way to solve problems takes precedent over doing it the same way it has always been done? Do you enjoy practicing law and want to be challenged so you can grow as an attorney?
If you answered “YES” to each of those questions, Bona Law may be the firm for you.
We are now taking applications for future positions. This announcement is not seeking any one particular position, but is instead announcing our intention to begin looking for additional team members at all levels. We anticipate adding new team members over the next year.
We are not limiting our search to any particular level of seniority, but are looking for junior to senior attorneys. Big firm experience is helpful, but not necessary.
We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in litigation and do both trial-level litigation and appellate litigation. Our cases range from simple breach-of-contract matters to appeals to complex antitrust cases. We also do a lot of antitrust counseling. We have a particular desire to add attorneys with strong litigation backgrounds and/or antitrust experience. We are also interested in attorneys with intellectual property litigation experience.
We also anticipate a future need for attorneys with real-estate litigation experience and real-estate transaction experience (more on that later).
Although our practice is national, we are currently only looking for attorneys that are members of the California bar. That may change in the future, but our next team members will be California bar members.
If you are interested in applying, please send the following information to email@example.com:
1. A cover letter that briefly explains what sort of position you are seeking and describes your present career goals. It is just as important for you as it is for us that this is a good fit, so the cover letter will help us understand whether working together will be mutually beneficial. The better it is for you, the better it is for us. We also have a sincere desire that anyone that works with us improve as an attorney, but also that they develop their career in the direction of their goals. So the cover letter is important.
2. A resume that describes applicable experience and education. It is useful to understand the types of cases you’ve worked on, so including that in the resume or cover letter will help us evaluate your application.
3. A writing sample. Strong writing is a big deal to us, so we want to see your writing. We aren’t that concerned about the form of the sample—whether it is an article, a brief, a blog post, or even a short story. But we want to see your writing. That doesn’t mean you need a Pulitzer Prize or an advanced degree in English, but we need to see that your writing flows well. We all consciously work on our writing and expect that you, if you join us, will do the same.
We apologize for this ahead of time as we know from experience that it can be frustrating, but we are not going to be able to respond to each applicant, nor can we promise any particular timeline for review. We will hold the applications and as particular roles come up, we will contact those applicants that we think will be a great fit. Please do not call us with questions about your application.
