Job Details

Commercial Property Lawyer | 5-8 years PQE | Auckland

Location Icon Auckland
  • 5 to 8 years' PQE, property work
  • Ex-top tier partners
  • Looking for something a little but different?
This firm was set up almost twenty years ago by partners from top tier firms, looking to do things a little differently. Since then they have gone from 6 people to over 20 and created a unique work environment with less emphasis on personal budgets and billing targets.  The aim is to create a cooperative rather than a competitive approach to the work. 

The property team reflects the rest of the firm in working with a range of clients described at 'SME upwards'. They also have a handful of very wealthy individuals they work for, with the common factor being an entrepreneurial feel to their commercial ventures. Recent work of note has included major developments and a complex subdivision, but the work can be anything that falls under the broad umbrella of commercial property. They also don't tend to work in strict silos, meaning you could have the opportunity to touch on different related areas of practice. Something that is very rare in a larger firm.

The work environment is described as pleasant and positive, with plenty of energy coming from the group of junior lawyers. Hours aren't typically long and there is some flexibility around start time. You will need previous property experience and likely at least 5 years PQE.
