Our client is looking for a senior lawyer to join and manage their specialist commercial litigation team, an area of the business that is continuing to grow. You will work across multiple partners in a very team based culture where there isn't a hierarchy but more of a flat structure.

This is a unique senior opportunity to lead this close-knit and friendly team and to continue to develop upon their existing client base.

  • 6+ years solid litigation experience - ideally you will have a history of managing complex litigation files;

  • A strong ability to lead a team and mentor juniors with a friendly and approachable personality; and
  • A hard-working and driven work ethic.

Perhaps you're working at a larger firm and want to move into a specialist commercial team that has a great work life/balance but also good quality work, likewise you may be a NZ qualified lawyer returning from the UK or Australia. If this sounds like you, apply now.
