Environmental & Natural Resources Associate

Tonkon Torp LLP, a medium-sized law firm in Portland, Oregon, is looking for a mid-level environmental and natural resources associate with two-four years of experience. The qualified candidate will have experience assisting clients with environmental regulatory compliance, including advising, permitting, and working with administrative agencies under the Clean Water Act, RCRA, Superfund, the Clean Air Act, the Endangered Species Act, and their state equivalents. The ideal candidate will also have interest, knowledge, and/or experience with water rights and related resource management issues. Experience in environmental and resource acquisition support for M&A and real estate transactions, as well as a technical or scientific background, would also be an advantage. This position is for a general practitioner of environmental and natural resources law, and not a niche specialist. The successful candidate must have a J.D. with high academic standing, outstanding client-service skills, excellent writing and research skills, a proactive approach to projects, and a commitment to diversity, professionalism, and community service and stewardship.
