Orrick’s Technology Companies Group is seeking an Associate or Managing Associate candidate with a passion for high-growth emerging technology businesses to join our Silicon Valley team. Orrick is proud to be one of the only firms to offer a destination practice with deep Silicon Valley roots and a broad global platform that scales with our clients as they grow. Over the past year, we closed more than $6.6 billion in venture capital financings, representing such hot tech companies as 23andMe, Asana, Betterment, Pinterest, Planet Labs, Quora, SoFi and Stripe, as well as investors like Bessemer, Battery Ventures, Founders Fund, Lux Capital, IA Ventures and Coatue Management. We have also driven numerous high profile M&A deals in the market, including Cruise Automation’s acquisition by GM, Stupeflix’s acquisition by GoPro and Nest Lab’s acquisition by Google.
Our TOTAL ACCESS series is a value add service available to entrepreneurs, start-up execs and the investment community.

The ideal candidate should have experience with private offerings and general venture capital and emerging company corporate transactions and public company representation and public offerings. Candidates must be highly motivated and possess excellent academic credentials along with superior communication skills. Membership to the State Bar of California is required. Candidate would be resident in our Silicon Valley office.
What kind of technologies would I be using within this role?
This is an attorney position primarily working with upcoming tech sector employers. The technology is consistent with those typically found in a law firm.
I've had experience working with high growth tech start ups over the past 5 years, would that be taken into account for a role such as this? How is the company culture at a law firm like Orrick in such a highly competitive market like Silicon Valley?
Hi Sam - we would certainly take all of your experience into account and it is definitely helpful for you to have tech start up experience. The Orrick culture in our SV is extremely supportive, agile and casual. While law firms will likely never see slides getting you from one floor to another or Segway's to get you from one end of campus to the other, our SV office definitely doesn't mirror a typical law firm office. There are Nerf gun fights, an open working environment, jeans every day and is quite loved and admired by our high tech clients and our attorneys love the fun and casual atmosphere.
Hi there! What is the reference number for this position so I may apply online?
Any openings for summer law clerks? Rising 3L, but I have VC and startup (legal) experience
