Job description

About the firm and role
This is an exciting growth opportunity for an intermediate level lawyer with solid experience across resource management, environment planning and local government work. This is a chance to be involved in work that will be affected by the RM reforms, working for a firm that has modern systems, a well-supported and friendly team and where you'll be mentored across a variety of work. The work is to a high standard and you'll learn from the industry bests.
 
 
In this role, you'll work with a partner in matters before the Environment Court, mediations and appeal stages. There will also be some strategy and advisory work but it will be a chance to hone your advocacy skills if you enjoy doing some litigious work. You'll be involved in resource consenting and planning matters, enforcement matters, judicial review decisions, public law matters and infrastructure related project work.
 
 
About you
 
The ideal candidate will have:
  • 2-5 years' experience within a well regarded resource management and/or environment and planning team or a mix of work with general litigation, perhaps treaty or public law matters also;
  • Some working knowledge of the resource management legislative framework (ideally you studied this paper at uni);
  • Quality drafting and advocacy skills;
  • An interest in further developing your career as a resource management lawyer.
Perhaps you're reflecting on where you're headed for the second half of 2022 and thinking about a move to a practice where you can be mentored, or you're looking for greater variety of RM work, or a place that has a structure that will allow you grow to take your career to the next level - if this sounds like you, then get in touch to find out more.

Those returning from Australia or the UK with relevant experience are of interest also
