Job Details

RM / Local Government | Senior Solicitor - Associate | Queenstown

Location Icon Rest of the South Island
  • 3+ Years PQE
  • National firm
  • Growing team
This national law firm is growing across all their offices in the South and North Island.  They are attracting top talent which is not surprising as the firm offers the full package including good quality work, strong career development opportunities,  a competitive package and flexible working arrangements. One of the opportunities is in beautiful Queenstown in the firm’s national Environmental & Local Government team.  

On a day-to-day basis, the role will see you working alongside a newly appointed partner who is now growing her team. Her experience gives her a unique perspective on the issues local government clients face and how to best respond in a political and pressured environment.

You can expect to regularly advise on contentious resource consent and district plan matters as well as strategic planning and policy work. You’ll also be regularly involved in consenting infrastructure projects and working with project teams from the inception of an idea through to project delivery. The role will also involve appeals and judicial review proceedings in the Environment Court and High Court.

Although you’ll be receiving the necessary support and training to ensure you continue developing your legal as well as your softer skills, the role will see you take on a reasonable amount of responsibility and will therefore require someone who has at least a few years relevant experience gained with a reputable team.
