Job Details

Commercial Property Lawyer | 3-5 years' PQE

Location Icon Auckland
  • Busy, growing team
  • Great environment with excellent partner
  • Varied, high quality property work
This firm has a long, distinguished history in Auckland and, although they are very much a full-service law firm these days, they are proud that their roots remain bedded in property work. That long-standing reputation means they have remained as busy as ever in these challenging times and they are looking for someone to join them with a view to developing their career.

This role will work directly with the partner and overall the property team is well-leveraged and can offer you great support. In fact, previous recruits have provided us with that exact feedback. The quality of the work is as good as anywhere, but probably provides more variety in terms of both work and clients than some larger counterparts.

Clients include developers, investors, and bodies corporate across commercial, industrial and residential assets. They range from a couple that have worked with the firm for over 100 years, through to those new to New Zealand and interested in investing here. The work is largely related to the planning, development and contractual work necessary for large scale complex property developments and the creation of master-planned communities. 

You will need between 3 and 5 years PQE and really good solid commercial property experience, as well as a strong academic background.  The team come from diverse backgrounds and is cohesive and successful, so a good cultural fit will be important as well.
