Perhaps you are currently working at an insurance company and have been thinking about a move to private practice to build on your technical legal skills? Likewise, you might be keen to move into a specialist insurance team that has a great work-life/balance but also quality work? NZ Qualified lawyers looking to return from overseas are also of interest.

About the opportunity

An opportunity has arisen for a Senior Solicitor level lawyer to join our client's insurance law team due to someone heading overseas. You will work in a team-based culture where there isn't a hierarchy but more of a flat structure, so there will be plenty of mentorship from expert partners in the industry. The work will involve contentious insurance matters, primarily representing insurer clients, in matters such as statutory liability, professional indemnity (e.g. D&O), professional negligence, business interruption and regulatory investigations, acting for insurers and large corporates. If you have a background in civil or insurance litigation and are looking to specialise in this field, this would be an excellent option to consider.

About you

  • 4+ years litigation experience with some insurance litigation experience;
  • Experience gained in a well-regarded litigation and/or insurance litigation team;
  • An interest in dispute resolution work, with the good written and verbal communication skills.

Part-time hours for more experienced candidates or some flexi-hours can be provided for candidates that have insurance experience.
