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 Recruiting@BoutinJones.com, using Tax Attorney in the subject line.
Does this sound familiar to you? You’re assigned a mentor you have little in common with or never hear from. You’re surrounded by boxes and spend hour after hour looking through documents. You’ve waited years to meet the client for whom you’ve been working. While this may sound familiar to new attorneys at other law firms, it’s not the experience new attorneys have at Boutin Jones. We don’t talk about mentoring programs—we spend time developing associates because we enjoy it and it’s the right thing to do. We are the ideal size to make sure associates have engaging work and learn from more experienced attorneys. We aren’t afraid to let associates work directly with our clients. If you’re not sure all that is possible, we invite you to speak with one of our associates.
During the interview process, I was amazed with how protective they were with the culture they’ve created here. I quickly became more and more attached as I got to know the people. – Ashley Connell, associate attorney at Boutin Jones
