Boasting an adventurous outdoor lifestyle, stunning ski slopes and picturesque landscapes, we have a great opportunity to be a part of a close-knit litigation team based in the heart of Queenstown.

Our client has a good reputation in the region and is well known for their high-quality work and strong firm culture. They are now looking to hire a Litigator at the intermediate-senior level. Coming from a solid background in Litigation, you will get the benefits of quality litigation work and mentoring but also have the ability to regularly deal with clients and appear in court to hone your advocacy skills.

The work will involve a mix of civil disputes, regulatory investigations, insurance, employment law and insolvency matters (experience in all these areas isn't required). You'll also get to work on criminal law matters if you want. So there will be plenty of variety in the role.

You will be someone with:

  • 4+ years PQE as a Litigator (with some civil litigation experience);
  • Good legal research, drafting and advocacy skills;
  • Leadership capabilities;
  • A proactive attitude and good interpersonal skills as you will be required to regularly deal with clients.

Perhaps you're thinking about a lifestyle change going into 2021, or maybe you are a returning Kiwi deciding where to re-enter the local market. It might also just be time to move back home, either way, it's definitely worth considering this opportunity and talking to us to find out more!
