The San Francisco City Attorney's Office Government Team seeks a qualified and highly-motivated California-licensed attorney for a full-time position as a Deputy City Attorney.
An attorney on the Government Team typically serves in an advisory role as general counsel to a mix of City officials and agencies. In that capacity, the attorney performs many functions – providing interpretations and advice, both orally and in writing, formally and informally, on a broad range of legal issues. The attorney’s role could include interpreting the requirements of a City ordinance or advising on the legal risks of a particular government action; drafting ordinances, ballot measures, and administrative regulations; reviewing contracts for legal sufficiency; and providing legal advice to commissioners before and during commission meetings. The attorney functions as the Office’s expert on laws administered by the City officials and agencies that the attorney advises. The attorney also may develop expertise in areas of law that transcend issues particular to the attorney’s client agencies and are relevant to many or all components of City government.
