Corporate Commercial Lawyer – Senior Associate

  • Location: Perth
  • Permanent / Full Time

Lawyer – Corporate / M&A


This environment will best suit if you have a strong foundation in corporate and commercial law but, more than that, have an acumen for and interest in the commerciality of business.

This long-standing mid-tier of repute takes an approach of truly partnering with their clients, in many cases even in terms of board representation or financial investment. What you won’t see regularly is clients engaging them for a discrete capital raising, then moving on to other representation. Rather they foster long term relationships through partnering with directors to provide wider advisory services, overlaid with legal components.

This role will suit if you are driven and ambitious. The structure will see clear air for a new Senior Associate with 5 to 8 years’ PAE (or senior lawyer at the 3-4yr mark). Coupling this with the merit-based promotion model, you can carve out your continued progression on your own terms.

Primarily aligning with a top-tier alumni corporate partner, you will also have a line to a second with a mixed corporate, commercial and property practice. Being Perth, there will always be a healthy line of resources clients but, less common for this market, there will also be a significant tech line. Expect a mix of public and private clients.

Upcoming matters include a couple of takeovers, a scheme of arrangement and some wider capital markets matters. You will do some listing work, but the nature of the relationships forged means the majority of matters are ‘second to market’ in make-up.

The lean term will mean client time is assured, with the intention that this role will be instrumental in driving matters. You can expect the support of other SAs, as well as two juniors. Offering one of the more generous incentive structures, particularly across the mid-tier, you will find that your efforts are well rewarded.

About you;

  • Ideally bringing 5-8yrs’ of corporate commercial experience in the Perth market, those at the 3-4 yr mark are also invited to get in touch to discuss
  • You will have a proven capital markets background, ideally spanning a mix of listed and private clients
  • Strong academic pedigree expected
