Job description

The Firm & Opportunity

An exciting opportunity for a junior-intermediate level lawyer to join a forward-thinking centrally based firm with modern offices. Led by two M&A / corporate specialist partners with a strong portfolio of NZX listed companies, multinationals, SME's and start-up businesses you will be joining their growing Corporate team. 

Day to day you will be involved in a mix of transactional, drafting and advisory work on M&A transactions, joint venture and management buy-out arrangements, corporate structuring and providing strategic advice to growing businesses (e.g. capital raising, seed funding and private equity). If you're looking for greater client contact or end to end exposure on files, then this would be an opportunity worth considering. With strong values embedded in this firm, you will be a part of a people driven culture that has embraced a modern and flexible approach to working. 
You will be someone that has:  
  • 2+ years experience in a well-regarded corporate/commercial law team (recent private practice experience and while corporate legal experience is preferred, you may come from a general commercial law background or have gained transactional skills from a tax or banking background and keen to move into corporate);
  • Good academics - at least a B average in your LLB; and
  • Passionate about further developing a career in the corporate/commercial law field and learning from experts.    
Note: this is not a graduate position and you must have been admitted to the bar in NZ with some existing corporate experience to apply.
