Careers

Careers

One of our proudest accomplishment as a law firm is the work environment we’ve created. The values we apply to our workday—and the fun we have together—have been consistent since day one. Combined with a progressive benefits package, engaging work and smart business decisions, our law firm stands out among its competition. At Boutin Jones you’ll find the perfect balance of professional growth opportunities, challenging work, good friends, and fun.

The way we mix hard work with enjoyment isn’t overly complicated. It’s a genuine expression of how much we enjoy working together. Yet even while we love taking over the homerun terrace for a Rivercats game and going on our annual family hike, it’s as rewarding knowing our benefits package is the equal of nearly all regional law firms. Some of the best things about working at Boutin Jones are the creative ways we have fun together—but we don’t make them a substitute for professional fulfillment. We think one without the other sounds just a bit too much like other law firms.

Tax Associate/Shareholder

Boutin Jones Inc., a Sacramento business law firm of approximately 50 lawyers – nine of whom are members of our tax practice group – is seeking two transactional tax attorneys. Candidates must have substantial experience in analyzing and advising clients with respect to tax implications of corporate merger and acquisition structures, partnership formation, allocations, operations and liquidations, and real estate taxation. The positions include supporting other practice groups in the firm regarding tax issues in real estate transactions, corporate transactions and litigation. We believe a great tax lawyer needs to work on transactions, not only pure tax issues, so both positions involve structuring and handling transactions.

One position is for a senior associate who will work with the firm’s shareholders. Our associates have direct contact with clients. We encourage them to learn from the shareholders, to constantly expand the depth of their practice and to take on more responsibility.

The other position is for a shareholder with an interest in building a practice in the Sacramento region and supporting other shareholders in addressing the demands of a growing Sacramento practice. The ideal candidate would have a strong interest in community engagement and practice development initiatives.

Applicants for both positions must be licensed to practice law in California. Qualified candidates from within and outside the Sacramento region are encouraged to apply.

We work collaboratively and collegially to serve our clients. We seek candidates who will help us maintain the strength of our tax group for many years to come.

Interested candidates should send their cover letter and resume to Iain Mickle at recruiting@boutinjones.com, using Tax Attorney in the subject line.
