Thanks to MacDonald Legal Placement for these – check them out and if you know someone for whom these positions might be a good fit, let them know!

Macdonald Legal Placement is currently seeking candidates for the following openings:

BUSINESS AND FINANCE ASSOCIATE: Our client’s San Francisco office is seeking a 4-5 year business and finance associate with experience in any or all of the following types of transactions: lending/financing (including real estate/asset based/M&A), UCC Article 9, secured lending, bank regulatory, workouts, real or personal property foreclosure, and related areas. Large firm experience is a plus, but is not required. The essential requirement is solid experience in complex transactional matters as well as solid academic performance. This is an immediate need and our client seeks to fill it as soon as possible, so please submit your materials ASAP.

PRODUCT LIABILITY DEFENSE ASSOCIATE: This is an opportunity to join one of the highest quality products liability defense groups in the Bay Area. The firm represents well-known, highly respected manufacturers in products liability defense litigation. This is defense work at its highest, most complex level. Our client is searching for an excellent 2-4 year litigation associate. Excellent academic performance is required in addition to solid law firm experience. Associates with deposition experience are preferred. Any trial experience would be a major plus.

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE IN ALASKA: Want to see Russia from your house? Commercial real estate may be suffering in the contiguous 48 states, but it’s booming in Alaska! Our client is seeking multiple commercial real estate associates. You do not have to be licensed in Alaska, but you must be willing to sit for the bar.

INSURANCE DEFENSE ASSOCIATE IN SACRAMENTO: If you’ve finally tired of the high cost of living in San Francisco, but want to stay in Northern California, you should consider our state’s capital. The Sacramento office of a Chicago-based law firm seeks an associate with 4 to 7 years experience in insurance defense work, including commercial casualty defense, insurance coverage and/or appellate experience. Solid academic credentials and excellent communication skills required.

For consideration for these and many other positions, please submit your resume and a copy of your law school transcript to the attention of Cara Lee Macdonald, Esq. at

- Don't be a dill weed.

- Treat other people the way you want to be treated.

- Ladies and children first.

- This is a rescue, not a bitch session.

- Help don't harm.

- Save the snarks for the attorneys and Above The Law.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.

Note: in no way, shape or form is Heller Highwater sanctioned, supported or even recognized, (but it is very likely monitored) by the management of Heller Erhman, LLP.
