We are looking for a 2+ year level lawyer (those more experienced may be of interest too) to work in a friendly and collegial team where you'll be mentored by a partner, consultant and work alongside other lawyers and support staff in the areas of residential conveyancing transactions, commercial leasing, refinancing transactions, trusts, wills, estate administration, occupation right agreements and related general practice legal work.

You'll work with clients that are mainly private clients in providing advice in terms of their personal affairs, as well as small-medium sized businesses and private developer clients. You will be someone that is proactive and willing to get stuck in but will have senior level support from partners to guide you on more complex files.

There are good working hours so you'd have a life outside of work. While you'd be expected to provide a good servcie to clients, the firm doesn't have high billing targets or pressure in that regard.

The ideal person will have:

  • 2-4 years PQE in general practice and property work. Some NZ based private practice legal experience is a must;
  • An ability to build a rapport with clients and cultivate strong client relationships;
  • Good communication and problem solving skills.

This is a firm that has a steady stream of work, a long-standing and established diverse client base across Central, South and East Auckland. If you're looking for a move closer to home, or are looking for greater variety and mentorship, get in touch to find out more.
