Careers

At ZwillGen, we like the work we do and we like each other. We’re looking for people who feel the same way and who will enjoy and contribute to our friendly and lively atmosphere.

ZwillGen Careers

We work collaboratively as a team and everyone pitches in on firm-related tasks, both big and small. We like self-starters who have a good sense of humor and can make (and take) a joke. We also like to keep things casual. At ZwillGen, jeans and a t-shirt is the norm and a suit and tie is likely to turn heads. In addition to our casual dress policy, we also enjoy a well-stocked kitchen, spontaneous happy hours, in-house massages, firm fantasy sports leagues, and other fun events and celebrations.

    ZwillGen is a boutique law firm that represents some of the biggest names in technology on a range of Internet-related legal issues including cybersecurity, privacy, government surveillance, alternative data, and online gaming.

    We are looking for a Legal Project Assistant who will work with attorneys on a variety of interesting projects.
