Job description

Our client has a well-established litigation team that operates across complex commercial, public law, regulatory, insurance and insolvency related disputes. They are looking to hire a talented senior litigation lawyer with solid litigation experience, sound drafting and advocacy skills that is looking to take the next step in their career. 

If you're someone who enjoys a varied litigation role, where you can be immersed from start to finish on complex litigation files then this could be the role for you. You'll be able to be involved in High Court litigation matters, adjudications, arbitrations and complex trials as part of a team where you'll be mentored by industry expert partners and be a part of a reputable full-service firm. In this role, you will be supported by modern systems and legal support staff while having the opportunity to mentor junior lawyers in the team. This is a close-knit and collegial team environment, and you'd play an intergral role on providing strategic advice to its clients on the disputes that they work on.

About you:
  • 4+ years' PQE in litigation (a broad mix of civil and commercial litigation experience would suit and some public law experience would be advantageous);
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills with an ability to cut through issues and problem solve;
  • A good academic record; and
  • Experience gained in a reputable firm - ideally a large firm or boutique litigation practice.
Perhaps you're looking for greater autonomy in your role, or a place that can offer a pathway to progress. Likewise, you might like to step into a high performing team where you can add value and be recognised for your contribution on files, gaining hands on court exposure. Whichever the case, get in touch, to discuss this opportunity further.

NZ qualified lawyers with relevant experience returning from overseas will be of interest too. This would be a great opportunity to secure an exciting role for the new year!
