Job Details

Corporate Lawyer | Graduate to 2 years PQE

Location Icon Auckland
  • Well-respected boutique commercial firm
  • Excellent quality work
  • Good training and career progression
It is rare for us to be recruiting for such a junior level role, particularly for such a sought-after firm. They are looking for a talented lawyer to join their excellent commercial team.  Crucially, you will have plenty of day-to-day contact with partners who have a proven track record of training and mentoring new members of the team.

There are two partners, each with a slightly different focus, creating a broad corporate commercial practice.  Clients come from a range of industries including technology, media, retail, logistics, fishing and biotechnology, from start-ups to international companies.  As a result the work covers a wide range of issues, agreements and deals.  The expectation for this role is that you will develop particular M&A expertise and you should be enthusiastic about the opportunity to build your knowledge in this area.

The pace and expectations of the team mean that you are likely to already have some experience, but very strong graduate applicants may be considered if you have already completed Profs. There is a commitment to quality in this close-knit, supportive team environment, so you can be confident that training would be second to none. The ideal is at least one year PQE and a strong academic background, with at least a B+ average.

Please forward your transcript with your application and we will be in touch if there is interest in progressing your application.
