The Opportunity

An exciting position has become available for an ambitious corporate and commercial lawyer who enjoys working in a transactions-focused team. Our client is a trusted advisor to international businesses, growing Kiwi organisations and high net-worth entrepreneurial and investor clients. They advise clients through different stages of business growth, their mergers and acquisitions (which forms a good portion of the work), joint venture arrangements, shareholder agreements and capital raising matters. Clients span a diverse range of industry sectors and the firm benefits from a flatter structure with partners so you can have a good level of involvement in the work you do and the chance to contribute throughout the entirety of the deals you work on.

You will be part of a forward-thinking culture, that embraces flexibility. There is definitely room for quick career progression if you show aptitude as the team is in growth mode.

The Firm

Working with partners that have a top-tier background and an exemplary track record of deals they've been involved in, you'll have a unique opportunity to gain one on one mentoring to learn from industry leaders but also be a part of a down-to-earth culture. Given our client's outstanding reputation in the NZ market, there is ample workflow of interesting projects and transactions that the partners are already working on.
About you:
  • 6+ years PQE with solid Corporate legal experience;
  • Experience gained in a top-tier firm or highly regarded Corporate team where you've had some M&A experience;
  • An interest in learning and continuing to grow your Corporate legal career under good mentorship;
  • NZ qualified; and
  • Good academics (B average or higher in your degree).

Either way, get in contact with us to find out more about this position.
