Corporate Solicitor / Senior Solicitor / Associate Role

Save job

Are you a Solicitor with a passion for Corporate / Commercial Law? We are looking for someone ambitious, switched-on and hard-working who wants to build their career in this area of law.

This role offers the complex work and perks of a large Auckland law firm, but based in a more relaxed South Island location. Wanting less time stuck in traffic for your daily office commute? Looking for a better way to get on the property ladder? After a more outdoorsy lifestyle than big city life? This role ticks all of the boxes.

What you'll do:
This is an opportunity to work alongside Partners in the Corporate Commercial team who have been well established in the legal industry in New Zealand for over the past 20 years. Working with a national team, you’ll be working on complex, high-quality work but with a breadth and variety that you won’t get based up in the North Island! The team's work includes:
• mergers and acquisitions
• procurement and commercial contracts
• capital raising
• private equity and venture capital
• corporate advisory work
• competition law
• insolvency and restructuring

What you bring:
Given the growing workload, our client is open to seeing expressions of interest from solicitors with 2 years PQE up to Senior Associate level. Successful candidates will need to have:
• A minimum of 2 years PQE in Corporate Law
• Experience in handling complex legal matters is an advantage
• Strong knowledge of mergers and acquisitions, commercial contracts, and capital raisings
• Ability to structure business deals and transactions effectively
• Ability to explain complex legal concepts clearly


This role requires a keen eye for detail, excellent communication skills and the ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment!

What sets this company apart:
Our client provides an environment which fosters your career development and success. With future partnership prospects, the role would suit someone ambitious, who likes working to targets and wants to see their team succeed! In exchange this firm provides a host of benefits for their staff, including:
• Mobile phone and laptop packages
• Health & Wellbeing allowance
• Annual health checks and flu vaccinations
• Discounted health and life insurance
• Wellness seminars
• Fresh fruit and snacks daily
• Long service leave, Easter Tuesday off and a great paid parental leave policy

If you’re someone who wants the Southern lifestyle but the fast-paced buzz of a large law firm, this is a great place for your next career step!
