About the role

An exciting opportunity has come up at a mid-sized law firm in their family law team. Working with passionate lawyers in this area, you would help individuals protect their assets in a relationship as well as navigate through separations and deal with relationship disputes (care of children, domestic violence etc). You have the opportunity to build solid internal relationships with partners who want to see you advance your career in this area while allowing you the freedom to promote your personal brand to attract new clients to the firm. Since there is a good balance of being able to work autonomously on files while having the support of other experienced lawyers at the firm, this would be an excellent role to consider if you are thinking of a change.

About you

  • 3+ years experience in relationship property from a reputable law firm;
  • Sound drafting skills (e.g. Contracting Out Agreements and other related RP agreements);
  • Experience with family law disputes and attending to defence hearings would be of interest;
  • Ambitious character and excellent communication skills.

Perhaps you are at a senior level and are looking for more autonomy of your day-to-day, or perhaps you'd like more advocacy experience at a progressive law firm, either way, we would like to hear from you.
