Our client is looking to hire a mid or senior level immigration lawyer that can work independently, but with the support of immigration partners across the firm with individuals and corporates. There is a good steady workflow for you to get your teeth sunk into. This is a rare opportunity to join a leader in the field and would suit a driven professional with a passion for immigration, advocacy, and problem-solving.

The role involves a mix of advisory and application management for a wide variety of cases. From project secondments to family relocations, to complexities around medical conditions and legal directives, this is an all-round position which requires expertise, tenacity and a client-centric approach. You can progress quickly within the firm if you perform well.

The ideal candidate will have:

· 4+ years PQE lawyer with experience in immigration law;

· Demonstrated track record working with complex immigration matters, investment visas, corporate and high-net-worth personal immigration would be an asset. However, those with experience in corporate, litigation or employment law are also of interest if you have strong academics and have worked in a reputable practice, demonstrating a strong interest in immigration law;

· An immigration advisor who has been admitted to the bar in NZ and keen to develop their skills in a law firm environment is of interest too.
