Senior Family Lawyer

Permanent / Full TimeLocation: Perth Posted on July 19, 2022

Sole practitioner within the family space looking for more support and/or better systems and structures?

Or a proven senior keen to return to more complex, higher-quantum matters?


This specialist family law boutique has been somewhat of a victim of its own successes, with a risk of log-jamming due to the volume of client enquiries. The senior ranks are currently at capacity, necessitating the attraction of further senior firepower to take on client-facing roles.


While their client base does include ‘standard’ separations, they are best known for their delivery on complex, high-quantum matters. Current WIP includes matters involving $100m in assets. This focus on the bigger end of town is further reason for the preference of attracting the gravitas that comes with experienced operators.


Structurally, there is a dedicated group of paralegals and office support that allow for a smooth operational flow. Furthermore, there has been significant investment into precedents and systems, with IT allowing for a completely seamless WFH experience.

Daily billable targets are highly achievable, especially considering the above support, with bonuses payable for performance above those levels.


Culturally, the existing group are a tightknit cohort who have proven regularly that they have one another’s backs. Underlying this is a clearly defined and strongly embraced set of firm values. Central to this is their unwavering position that the profession, and the client, should be paramount, before the commercials.


Seniors at the 10+ mark will fit well, but I would welcome conversations with anyone who brings 5+ yrs’ PAE. Proven experience in complex, family law matters expected.

Interested? Please Apply using the button above or email me directly at You could also call/text me on 0416963992 for a confidential discussion. 

If the above is in the right wheelhouse but not quite what you’re after at this time, feel free to drop me a line anyway – we can have a confidential discussion about what good would look like for you and I can keep you informed as / when that right thing does arise.
