We have been, and continue to be, committed to Equal Opportunity Employment and equal treatment of all qualified individuals — regardless of race, color, sex, national origin, age, religion, marital status, parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran status, disability, or any other factors that are not job related.

Our policy is to remove barriers to employment opportunities and to ensure that access to jobs is based strictly on an individual’s competencies. This policy applies to every aspect of employment at Catalyst, including recruitment, hiring, training, advancement, and termination. We are certain that this philosophy, and our acting upon it, will help advance our Firm goals, as well as meet our responsibilities to employees, clients, members, and the communities in which we live and work.


Our Culture

Our office is collaborative. We focus on client service and value colleagues willing to take on complex (and sometimes not glamorous) problems as part of a team. Above all, we value excellence. Our team-based approach needs good communicators who can be effective in person, on the phone, and in writing, with a wide variety of people.

Catalyst Law is co-located with our non-profit affiliate, The Commons Law Center, a legal service firm founded by Catalyst in 2016. Social enterprise is part of our culture. A willingness to innovate in the delivery of legal services is essential.


Our Compensation

We offer competitive compensation for all positions, benefits including medical, dental, and vision insurance, a 401k plan with ESG investment opportunities, generous paid holidays, paid time off, paid sick leave, and a flexible work environment.


Our Neighborhood

Our office is located in Portland’s Pearl District, with access to the Willamette Waterfront and Park Blocks, onsite showers and lockers for cyclists, frequent light rail, bus, and streetcar service, and close to restaurants and shopping.

A boutique law firm and certified B Corp, Catalyst seeks experienced attorneys across our three practice areas – Trusts & EstatesBusiness, and Nonprofits – to join our growing team.
