Join a high performing litigation team, but one where you’re not going to get stuck on the Royal Commission resubmits and recommendations for the foreseeable future. Rather, the practice will be highly varied; spanning class action, Superior Court litigation, and a range of ADR.
MATTERS will include
- Partnership, JV, shareholder and trust disputes, and other corporate disputes
- Intellectual property, patent enforcements, trademark activity
- PPSA disputes
- Commercial construction and infrastructure, and property disputes
- Competition and regulatory investigations and enquiries; ASIC, APRA
Aligning with two partners and two seniors, your role will go beyond what many would expect at this level. Expect to have input around strategic direction and to directly brief counsel. While you can expect ownership over some disputes and discrete portions of the larger more complex matters, there will be plenty of mentorship from the senior ranks.
Culturally, this long-standing mid-tier has worked hard to instil an environment of excellence with the frills and pretence of some of their competitors. It’s one of those ‘take the work seriously, but not ourselves’ kind of settings. A similar personal ethos will see you clicking and moving up.
You will bring 2-4 years’ PAE with proven involvement on complex disputes. Strong academic background expected.
