Job description

The Firm

Our client is a full-service law firm known for its high-quality work and exceptional client service. Their Corporate & Commercial team is expanding and they are now recruiting for an exceptional Lawyer who has a keen interest in working for a high-performing Corporate team.

This is an opportunity to join a firm that has embraced a modern way of working, operating flexibly and without red tape or bureaucracy. If you're looking for greater client contact or end to end exposure on files, so that you're involved in substantive legal work, then this would be an opportunity that is definitely worth considering. 

The Role

You will work in a team led by a couple of Partners and a mix of Lawyers at different levels in the team, doing top quality mergers & acquisitions work, advising on joint venture arrangements, management buy-out arrangements, corporate structuring, corporate governance and providing strategic advice to growing businesses (e.g. capital raising, seed funding, private equity etc.) The client base is diverse and includes the likes of blue-chip companies, multi-nationals, start-up clients going through expansion and a mix of local private companies.
You will be someone that has:  
  • 2+ years experience in a well-regarded corporate/commercial law team with recent private practice experience. If you work part of an M&A Transactions team within a consulting or accounting firm and are admitted to the bar, your background may also be suitable.
  • 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. 

If you are looking for more transactions/deal exposure or would like to be part of a market-leading corporate team within a top-tier law firm environment, get in touch to find out more about this position, as well as other corporate and commercial positions available through CoLegal.
