Lawyer – Litigation
As a long established and respected boutique in the central CBD, partners are in the enviable position of turning away clients at the moment. Matters are of a high-quality. Spanning both front- and back-end, you will have ample opportunity to contribute to large, multi-party matters with strong partner access. At the same time, they also take on smaller matters for SMEs allowing you the chance to drive matters autonomously.
Their strong referrer networks allow for a sufficiently ample work-flow to assign matters as preferred. So, while the ideal would be for an ambitious Lawyer or Associate who is comfortable taking on both front-end and disputes, there is scope for you to focus more on one or the other. Founding Partners have added one to the partnership, a ‘home-grown’ talent, and would like to continue to build from within.
Indicative back-end matters include contractual, complex estate and probate, insolvency, tax, and construction disputes. You could touch everything from a $30m, multi-party dispute in the Federal Court to personally appearing in local courts. Court time is strongly encouraged for those with a disputes leaning.
On the front-end, they handle property, shareholder, construction contract reviews and wider commercial agreements. Of help to this are strong precedent systems and AI technology – giving you a big head-start on the drafting front.
The three Directors very much have an ‘open-door’ approach to mentorship and a pragmatic, down-to-earth cultural approach. This will particularly appeal to those from larger firm backgrounds who are looking to regain some balance. You can expect to clock-off by 5.30pm upwards of 90% of the time.
With more than one role available, they are open to conversations with those in both the 2-4 yr PAE bracket, and those who are 4+.
