We invite you to apply for a position as an associate at Kwun Bhansali Lazarus LLP.

KBL is a boutique litigation firm in San Francisco’s financial district, presently comprised of three founding partners, one associate and support staff. In 2020, we seek to hire one or two more excellent associates to join our team and take part in the early stages of our firm.

We founded KBL in May 2018 based on a desire to emphasize results, value and diversity to solve the problems our clients face in their most challenging litigation and trials. The founding KBL partners all previously practiced together at Keker, Van Nest & Peters. Our collective experience also includes judicial clerkships in the Ninth Circuit, Northern District of California, and District of Arizona, leading the in-house litigation team at Google, partnership in a top-notch trial boutique firm in Houston, Texas, and practice with national litigation firms and legal non-profits. In addition, we serve on the boards of various bar associations and legal non-profits, including ones with a particular focus on the federal courts.

We take pride in the practice we have built and enjoy the flexibility we have in selecting which clients and matters we take on. Our clients range from Silicon Valley mainstays such as Google and Netflix, to smaller companies and start-ups, and individuals. Our cases span the spectrum of legal issues, from breach of contract, business torts, defamation, intellectual property, and legal malpractice. In intellectual property, our current docket includes copyright, patent, and trademark matters, and we also handle trade-secret and employee mobility cases. We represent Google in Google v. Oracle, presently before the Supreme Court with a decision expected by the end of June. We are also committed to a robust pro bono practice; shortly after founding our firm, we accepted a court appointment in a civil matter to represent an elderly couple in trying to retrieve assets that had been taken from them, and more recently, we have been handling the immigration asylum case for a Salvadoran woman and her young daughter who are subject to the Migrant Protections Protocol.

If you’re a lawyer who wants a practice that combines complex business litigation and trials with early career opportunities to run your own cases, we’d like to hear from you. At KBL you will learn by doing, both by working with experienced lawyers and by managing cases on your own. Excellence in advocacy requires crisp legal writing, strategic choices at depositions, and on-your-feet thinking at hearings and trial—skills we will work with you to develop. Working with our team, you will learn how to make the key judgment calls in litigation that will let you solve the problems our clients face.

Our firm is committed to maintaining diversity among our attorneys, and we encourage interest from candidates of all genders, nationalities, races, ethnicities, and sexual orientations.
