Job description

The Opportunity

An opportunity has arisen for an intermediate or mid-senior level lawyer to join our client’s insurance team due to consistent growth in workloads from top-end insurers and re-insurers. You will work in a team-based culture where there isn't a hierarchy but more of a flat structure. There is the chance to be involved in files end to end and take on greater responsibility on more complex claims as you progress. The work will involve contentious insurance matters, primarily representing insurer clients, in matters such as statutory liability, professional indemnity (e.g. D&O), professional negligence, construction-related insurance matters, marine disputes, business interruption and regulatory investigations, acting for insurers and its brokers. 
  
About you: 
  • 3-6 years litigation experience, gained in a well-regarded litigation practice or within an insurance organisation. While having some insurance litigation experience is preferred, those with a solid civil litigation background would be of interest also; 
  • A team player that enjoys varied work;
  • An analytical mind with good drafting skills and client relationship management capabilities and; 
  • A decent university academic record. 
Perhaps you are currently working at an insurance company and have been thinking about a move back to private practice to build on your technical legal skills? Likewise, you might be keen to move into a specialist insurance team that has a good work-life/balance but also quality work.

NZ Qualified lawyers looking to return from overseas are also of interest.  

Enquire now to see if this is your next move for 2022.
