Job description

Our client is a well-established CBD firm offering a partnership opportunity - salaried or equity depending on your transferable client base and background/experience. The ideal candidate will have a general civil and commercial litigation background as the team does a mix of disputes which cover contractual disputes, insolvency and restructuring matters, property disputes, regulatory investigations, shareholder/business disputes, trust, and estate litigation. The team represents a range of clients from multi-national businesses to developers and high-net-worth individuals.

This is an opportunity to work in a firm and team that is expanding and has been working well through the COVID situation. Due to internal changes, an opportunity for a new litigation partner has come up in the team. You'll have the experience of partners in other specialist areas e.g. employment law in order to consult with them as required.   

Our client is looking for someone with well-developed advocacy skills, who has a solid track record with resolving complex claims, coming from a well-regarded practice. You will be supported in business development and marketing initiatives to help grow this area of practice further.
 
What you need to succeed:
  • 10+ years legal experience with solid experience in litigation work;
  • Experience gained in a reputable city practice;
  • Driven to be a leader and expert in your field; 
  • Ability to mentor juniors; and
  • NZ qualified lawyer.
A transferable client base or clients which could be cultivated should you be moving practices would be preferred but isn't necessarily a must as the firm does have an established client base. 
  
You may be a partner that is looking to move into a practice with a better working environment and management or perhaps you're at a Senior Associate / Special Counsel level and feeling blocked from progression where you currently are. This is a firm with a sound reputation and infrastructure in place to support you in managing your client relationships and where there will be cross-referral opportunities. 
  
All enquiries and applications will be treated in strict confidence.
