About the client

A long-standing firm in the local South Auckland community are on the look out for a 5+ years PQE (those more experienced may be of interest too) to work in a friendly and collegial team where you'll work with 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. The role has come about due to growth and a gap between the partnership level and juniors/intermediates in the team.

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.

About you

The ideal person will have:

  • 5+ 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.

Who this might appeal to?

Whether you'd like to do quality work as a Consultant, with autonomy and decent working but without management responsibilities or you're looking for progression into a more senior role where you can have a hand in helping mentor juniors, get in touch to find out more about this opportunity and making a fresh start for your career in 2021.
