Job Details

Commercial Solicitor | 3-5 years PQE

Location Icon Auckland
  • Broad commercial issues
  • Working with a experienced partner
  • Down-to-earth, friendly environment
If you are hungry for more variety in your work then this role will suit you down to the ground. It spans corporate, commercial and financial markets within the commercial team at one of New Zealand's longest established firms.

You will work closely with an experienced partner who has a mixed commercial and finance practice. The firm is committed to sharing knowledge and hands-on training and so your own development will benefit from access to that considerable experience. Although the client base now includes multi-nationals and listed companies, there also remains a core of privately held companies, some owned by families who were among the very first clients the firm had over 100 years ago.

On any given day you could be dealing with with capital raising, commercial contracts, governance, restructuring, finance structures, franchising, M&A, partnerships, JVs, private equity, securities, shareholder agreements, trusts and asset protection. The aim is to provide pragmatic advice in a friendly and professional way.

You should have at least 3 years PQE, and probably not more than five or six. Experience in commercial work is essential and financial services or banking exposure would be a real bonus.
