Job Details

Corporate Lawyer | 5-7 Years PQE

Location Icon Auckland
  • Local and International Deals
  • Blue chip clients
  • Some of the best work in New Zealand
This top tier corporate team is finding it tricky to find the right person for a crucial senior position.  They need a genuine M&A specialist to take a leading role with clients and the wider team. 

The partners deal with a range of acquisitions, mergers and trade sales, private equity, capital markets, property syndications, commercial transactions, and general corporate advisory work, and act for a diverse mix of national and international clients.  They are regularly recognised at home and overseas for the quality of their practice.  International experience would be a real bonus.

The type of experience needed suggests large firm training and you will be in a position to be managing files and working on complex transactions.  There wouldn't be immediate partnership prospects, but the aim is to create opportunities for you to build your own long term client relationships, which is obviously vital to taking the step up in the medium term.

You might already be in a senior role but wanting to take a step up in the quality of your work.  Similarly, there might be a bottle neck in your current firm and you are looking for a clearer path.  You might also be overseas at the moment and hoping to move back to a senior role and maintain some of the complexity you have become used to.
