Based in the CBD, this role involves working with specialist partners as part of a full-service firm that is now looking to hire a Senior Associate (or an experienced Senior Solicitor/Associate) to be a safe pair of hands to help manage files from end to end with partnership support. The firm has modern working practices (flexibility, good systems) and their clients range from large multinational businesses to start-ups and growing businesses as well as assisting high net worth individuals. The Corporate team is highly regarded and has been recognised with external accolades for the work they've been involved in such as The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners to name a few.
 The work itself would involve a mix of:
  • Top-tier level M&A transactions for corporates and investors (locally and cross-border);
  • Joint-ventures, partnership agreements and corporate structuring;
  • General commercial contracting and negotiations (procurement agreements, supply contracts, licensing, franchising and shareholder arrangements);
  • Private equity and capital raising matters; 
  • Consumer law and regulatory work; and
  • Corporate advisory work.
Perhaps you're at a larger firm and feeling blocked from advancement or you're wanting a greater variety of work in an environment with steady workflows where you can grow. Likewise, you may be looking to join a close-knit team where you will be valued for the work you do and can have greater client relationship management responsibilities.
The ideal candidate will have 6+ years of solid experience in the corporate and commercial law area within a reputable law firm in NZ (or gained experience overseas). Decent academics and commercial nous are required. 
NZ qualified lawyers looking to return from the UK or overseas are of interest, as well as those working in-house interested in a move back into private practice for the right role.
