Commercial and Private Client Lawyer

  • Clear pathway to partnership!
  • Engaging work with an established and diverse client base
  • Enjoy an informal, family-friendly working environment

Imagine yourself as a successful partner in this well regarded and established firm! WFH and flexibility available.

About the role

This well-established and thriving law firm in the Auckland CBD is seeking a commercial and private client solicitor to not only join their team, but to be warmly welcomed as a future partner of the firm. This is a succession planning appointment and as such, you will be stepping in to take over part of an established practice and client base. As a bonus - you will not have the usual partnership requirements to create a business case or to come with your own clients.

This role sits within the larger Corporate and Commercial team which is currently led by four Partners (one of which will be your direct report). You will enjoy working across a range of practice areas including commercial law (including business sales and purchases), property law (both residential and commercial including subdivisions), trusts, wills, estate administration and enduring powers of attorney.  You will be the most senior lawyer in the team and will be ably supported by a wider, collegial team of more junior solicitors and business support.

This is a full-time position with some WFH flexibility once you are settled into the role.

What we’re looking for

  • NZ admitted lawyer with a minimum 8 years’ PQE
  • Experience across a broad range of practice areas including commercial law (including business sales and purchases), property law (both residential and commercial including subdivisions), trusts, wills, estate administration and enduring powers of attorney
  • A desire to work towards partnership within the firm
  • Management experience (or aspirations to manage and lead a team)
  • Strong client service orientation with a genuine interest in people
  • Down to earth and collaborative interpersonal style
