Our client has a well-established litigation team that operates across complex commercial, civil, employment and health & safety spheres. They are looking to hire a talented litigation lawyer with 5+ years' solid litigation experience dealing with either commercial, insolvency, construction, civil, employment or regulatory disputes.

If you're someone who enjoys a varied role, where you can be immersed from start to finish on complex litigated files and help resolve issues that arise then this could be the role for you. You'll be able to be involved in High Court litigation matters, adjudications, arbitrations and complex trials as part of this role working partners in the Disputes teams.

About you:

  • 5+ years' PQE in litigation (a broad mix of civil and commercial litigation experience would suit, but we would also consider employment lawyers with contentious experience);
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills with an ability to cut through issues and problem solve;
  • A good academic record; and
  • Experience gained in a reputable firm - whether large or small.

Perhaps you're in a firm doing a specific area such as earthquake litigation and would like to use your civil litigation experience in a more dynamic area. Likewise, you might be keen to step into a high performing team where you can challenge yourself and be mentored to develop your advocacy skills. Whichever the case, get in touch, to discuss this opportunity further.

NZ qualified lawyers with relevant experience returning from overseas will be of interest too.
