NOT JUST RESOURCES
Being Perth, there will always be a healthy energy and resources deal stream, but it is worth noting that won’t be the be all and end all here. You will also get involved with premium transactions across the media and technology, financial services, and FMCG spaces.
Those miners that you work with will be at the bigger end of town; medium to large capex principals. Investment bank and private equity activity can be expected.
Underpinning a multi-rated Partner, who also brings management credentials in addition to their legal strengths, there will be two other senior operators to draw on.
There will be a strong listed transactions line, spanning M&A, ECM, schemes of arrangement and high level corporate governance. The team has a takeover panel pedigree too.
Best suiting an experienced associate or first/second year senior associate, there will be ample opportunity here to carve out a career in corporate M&A without resorting to an east coast or UK move.
Compared to many of the global and top-tier teams on the Terrace, this is a less ‘crowded’ environment at this level. You will have support of two lawyers plus rotating grads.
You will bring at least 3 yrs’ PAE (ideally 4 +) in corporate law and a strong academic background. Top-tier, global or highly-rated corporate team experience expected, as is experience with listed deals.
