Bankruptcy Litigation Staff Attorney (Part-Time)

Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP is excited to offer a unique opportunity within our Bankruptcy Litigation practice in the Orange County office for a part-time Bankruptcy Litigation Attorney. This role is specifically tailored for experienced attorneys seeking to balance a fulfilling career with personal commitments, offering a flexible, reduced-hours work schedule. In line with our modern approach to work, we are open to this position being primarily remote, with the preference that the candidate resides in California to facilitate timely collaboration as needed.


As a global Am Law 50 full-service law firm, Sheppard Mullin boasts over 1,000 attorneys across 16 offices worldwide, with the Orange County office alone housing over 90 attorneys. Our practice areas are diverse, encompassing Business Litigation, Corporate Transactions, Finance & Bankruptcy, Real Estate, Entertainment, Intellectual Property, and more.


Opportunity Highlights:

  • Flexible, Part-Time Role with Remote Working: Ideal for seasoned attorneys (12+ years of experience) in general civil litigation or creditors' rights/bankruptcy litigation, looking to transition from a demanding practice to a more flexible schedule. This non-partner track position offers the chance to engage in challenging work without the full-time pressures, and the flexibility to work remotely.
  • Autonomy: Candidates will have the opportunity to work independently, managing projects and tasks with minimal supervision. This role is perfect for those who value professional autonomy while still being part of a supportive and collaborative team.
  • Expertise Areas: The successful candidate will have substantial experience in:
    • Bankruptcy Litigation, including creditors' rights matters.
    • Representation of lending institutions, equity groups, financial services corporations, equipment lessors, landlords, and real estate developers.
    • Familiarity with both conventional and non-conventional finance relationships.
    • Transactional experience and negotiation of finance documents (preferred but not essential).

Application Requirements:


Interested candidates must submit a resume, cover letter, and law school transcript for consideration. Applicants should be admitted to and in good standing with the California Bar, or other appropriate state bar.
