Our client has a well-established litigation team that works across complex restructuring, insolvency, banking and finance disputes for high-end clients in the financial services sector. They are now looking to hire a senior litigation lawyer with relevant experience to join their team, working closely with expert partners and dealing directly with clients from day one.

In this role, you will be supported by modern systems and legal support staff while having the opportunity to mentor junior lawyers in the team and play a key role as lead counsel on a variety of interesting disputes whether it be acting for insolvency practitioners, major banks or listed corporates on contentious matters.

The ideal candidate will have:
  • 7+ years' PQE in litigation (relevant experience includes insolvency, restructuring, corporate and commercial litigation)
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills with the ability to run files indepdently;
  • A genuine interest in progressing your career within financial services litigation;
  • A good academic record; and
  • Experience gained in a reputable firm - ideally a large firm or boutique litigation practice.
Perhaps you're someone wanting more autonomy over the files you work with, or maybe you have solid commercial litigation experience and interested in transitioning into a banking and finance litigation focused role, then this could be the right opportunity for you. Likewise, you might be returning to New Zealand from overseas and are considering joining a disputes team at a leading full-service law firm. Eitherway, be in touch to find out more about this position and other dispute resolution positions available.
