About the opportunity

We are working exclusively with a firm that holds a strong reputation in the legal market for its work, culture and practices. This is a role for a good intermediate level lawyer keen to take a step up in responsibility and do quality work, while learning from top lawyers.

The role has come about due to growth in private client work with a bent towards property/commercial related matters - the work itself will involve commercial leasing, subdivisions, residential conveyancing, trusts, wills, estate administration and some overflow commercial legal and financing work too. You'd work with an approachable partner, Senior Associate and a couple of juniors as part of the team. There is the collegiality and support from the wider firm which provide for a good social environment too. The clients are multi-generational, high net worth individuals and developers amongst others.

If you're requiring a bit of flexibility then that is possible in this role, as the firm has well set up systems/technology in place to make that happen and a culture that supports diversity and flexibility.

About you

You will be someone with:

  • 3+ years NZ practising legal experience - you might come from a smaller general practice firm and want to work in a larger practice or have better mentoring. Likewise, you might be looking to set up roots in Wellington from another region, or seeking progression.
  • good interpersonal and client relationship skills
  • A decent academic record (B average or better ideally)

Perhaps you're thinking about a move to Wellington? Wanting to make a fresh start for 2021? Get in touch to find out if this opportunity is for you.

You must be a NZ qualified lawyer and ideally with some private practice experience to apply for this role.
