About Downey Brand LLP.

Clients turn to Downey Brand for efficient and practical legal advice. We have built a reputation of understanding the industries and businesses of our clients and working with them to advance their business goals.

Founded in California’s capital city of Sacramento, Downey Brand is strategically positioned to serve clients in business, natural resources and litigation matters throughout California, Northern Nevada and beyond. As a preeminent full-service law firm, we offer counsel in more than 30 areas of civil practice including water, agriculture, corporate, civil litigation, business planning, intellectual property, bankruptcy, employment, construction, real estate, trusts and estates and family law. We focus on providing these services to public corporations, governmental entities, privately held companies, family-owned businesses and individuals. Our clients’ industries are as vast and diverse as our region – financial institutions, agricultural producers, forest products, retail, construction, real estate, public agencies and non-profit organizations.

Like most businesses, only half of the picture is found in the description of our firm. The other half of the picture can be found in the individual attorneys who comprise our firm and the role they play in the community. Our heritage of community involvement started more than 50 years ago with our assistance in the formation of Legal Services of Northern California. This commitment continues today with our attorneys’ participation in our active pro bono program helping many charities and disadvantaged individuals. In addition, we are fortunate to have numerous civic-minded clients who we work with to enrich our communities. Our attorneys serve on over 30 charitable boards throughout our region supporting such causes as animal welfare, food banks, women’s shelters, hospice services, theatre groups, as well as our thriving local art museum.

For more than 80 years, our success has derived from earning the trust of our clients. Many of these relationships have spanned decades, which is a testament to our legal skills, our responsiveness and our ability to understand our clients’ goals. We intend to perpetuate this legacy by continuing to provide practical advice that allows our clients to advance their interests.

Summer associate program

Our summer program is an exceptional opportunity to elevate your legal skills by doing challenging work for real clients alongside experienced attorneys who are passionate about their practice. Because the vast majority of our summer associates return to the firm as practice-ready first year associates, we are dedicated to helping you reach as far as your talent and initiative will take you. We also value the experience of clerkships and allow for summer associates to defer starting at Downey Brand as first year associates pending completion of a clerkship. Upon joining the firm, bonus compensation for eligible clerkships and appropriate progression credit are provided.
