Smart.  Resourceful.  Committed.  Sacks, Ricketts & Case, LLP, a boutique litigation firm with offices throughout California and in Phoenix, Arizona, is currently accepting applications for its annual summer associate program.  Applications will be accepted from 1Ls and 2Ls for its San Francisco office and from 1Ls for its Phoenix office.

The firm primarily handles business/commercial and employment matters, including litigation, class action defense, employment counseling, and internal investigations.  SRC’s boutique firm size paired with the large firm experience of its partners and associates has enabled the firm to service a wide range of clients, including private equity firms, technology companies, startups, franchisors, restaurant groups, public entities, and other public and privately held businesses.

Summer associates will gain hands-on experience and exposure to the firm’s practice areas.  SRC’s summer program provides opportunities for summer associates to work directly with the firm’s attorneys and staff on a variety of legal assignments similar to those given to first-year associates, including legal research, drafting pleadings and other documents, and conducting due diligence.  There will also be opportunities to attend depositions, client meetings, mediations, and court hearings.  Additionally, the firm regularly hosts social activities and events throughout the summer program.

Candidates should have a demonstrated interest in class action defense, commercial litigation, and/or employment matters.  If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, transcript, and writing sample (all in PDF format) to:

Michele Floyd, Hiring Partner, at, and Shirley Shu, Of Counsel, at

Please note that the firm does not accept submissions from placement agencies for its summer associate program.
