Job description

This modern Auckland CBD firm is requiring a talented and ambitious legal secretary with a background in property law to join the team. This is a busy practice that specialise in high-end land developments, subdivisions, and project-based work.

About the Role:

Working with an approachable Partner, and a small team of fee earners, you will be involved from start to end on residential conveyancing files, have exposure to finance-related work, commercial leasing, business transactions, and the chance to develop your drafting skills.

  • Opening and managing client files
  • Drafting, editing, and collating legal documents and commercial agreements
  • Preparing LINZ/ edealings and relevant documents for settlement agreements
  • Liaising with internal and external departments (banks, agents, Council etc)
  • Compiling month-end billing for authors
  • Diary and email management for the Partner
