Job Details

Experienced Litigator

Location Icon Auckland
  • Big trials
  • Specialist litigation firm
  • Friendly, supportive and welcoming culture
More than a decade ago this specialist litigation and dispute resolution firm was established in Auckland, providing specialist services to leaky home owners and insurance clients. The firm quickly developed a reputation as the market leader in leaky home cases. They acted for a large number of bodies corporate and individual homeowners with claims before the Weathertight Homes Tribunal, District Court, and High Court.  Although the firm is well known for its advice to body corporate clients and focus on all areas of construction litigation, they continued to work across other practice areas and attracted lawyers with expertise in insurance, employment, and civil litigation. Today, they are a full-service litigation firm with a team of five partners and over 20 lawyers.

Looking ahead, the firm has a strong pipeline of big trials (10 -20-week trials) scheduled over the next two to three years. The trials mainly involve large-scale construction claims, acting for plaintiffs. This created an opportunity for an experienced litigator to join the team.  The opportunity will see you work alongside all the partners and being involved in all the big picture stuff including managing juniors and briefing expert witnesses.

To be successful in this role, you’ll need to show experience working on large-scale matters and briefing expert witnesses.   The team recently moved into new and modern premises and the overall culture is friendly, welcoming and supportive.
