Family Lawyer 4+ years' PQE - $90K-$135K plus KiwiSaver

An exciting opportunity awaits a Family Law Solicitor to join our busy litigation and dispute resolution team.
In the business for more than 104 years, our well-respected firm assists clients throughout New Zealand and overseas. We have always moved with the times, offering:

  • Modern, attractive, offices in the CBD.
  • Flexible working to suit all team members’ circumstances.
  • A family-focused work environment.

We are looking for a lawyer with at least 4 years’ P.Q.E. in Family Law, strong verbal and written skills, experience in Court, good academic record, and a focus on delivering clients a high level of service.
If you are looking for an opportunity that offers:

  • Your next big step in a successful career.
  • Varied and interesting clients.
  • Support from a senior Principal in building increasingly strong litigation skills.
  • Ongoing skills and career development guaranteed, and
  • A friendly and fun team environment...

...we’d love to discuss the role with you.

Committed to very high standards of service to our clients and a balanced lifestyle for all who work with us, we don’t expect long hours or excessive billings from our people to earn well or progress their careers rapidly.

We begin with market-leading base salaries comparable with much larger law firms (in the range $90,000-$135,000 dependent on your demonstrated experience), and tailor each team member’s WorkPlan to their particular role and desired work life balance, in which all work is valued, and remuneration regularly reviewed. The opportunity for additional variable rewards is in your hands.

You’ll be free to take the responsibility, and commensurate personal accountability, to organise performance of your role flexibly to suit your lifestyle interests, family, and other non-work commitments.

We guarantee continuous clarity for all team members around their roles and our expectations and provide monthly formal sessions with your supervising Partner for feedback and dialogue, as well as having ample ad hoc opportunities for feedback and discussion with Partners and team members.

We walk the talk in caring about our people, focus on your ongoing skills development with interesting and challenging work, very good training and mentoring, and career progression, in a supportive team of colleagues.

Standard benefits include an extra day off on your birthday, income protection insurance, monthly firm lunches, a cell phone, an active social club, and of course the legendary scones baked in-house every Friday! We are also happy to discuss relocation assistance if required.

Please apply in the strictest confidence by forwarding your CV, together with any written references, to Shaun Cousins, Partner, care of
