Having gained a valuable grounding in a top-tier disputes environment, are you now looking to build on that foundation with a more varied technical exposure. Frequently, due to the lower leverage environments, it is firms below the traditional top bracket that can support this best.
This bracket is well populated by alumni who have, more often than not, brought their quality matters, strategic approach and clients from the top end of town.
Whether the end goal is partnership within practice, the Bar or an in-house direction, this increased exposure can add value. Following are three options that may appeal.
- As a respected name in banking, litigation and corporate law circles, this firm spans Sydney and Melbourne
- You could expect the benefit of three partners’ practices and the mentoring of different approaches
- Regulatory disputes will feature, as will white-collar crime, class action and high-end commercial litigation
- Highly resourced global, but with a tight-knit team
- 2 Partners and an SC to align with; the two partners both have lecturing backgrounds so mentoring and training is central to their approach
- One stands out in particular as both a highly technical and personable operator who brings a pedigree on some of the biggest corporate litigations and class actions of the past two decades
- There’s also a strong line of regulatory investigations and disputes, plus a dotted line to a strong arbitration practice
- One of the larger firms globally, their model and relatively small footprint in Australia allows for increased breadth of exposure than many
- There’s three parts to the disputes division; arbitration, regulatory and commercial disputes
- The former is primarily northward facing through the APAC region, the second is corporate driven (no retail banking clients), and the latter is primarily bet the company in orientation
You will bring 2+ yrs’ (ideally 3+) in commercial litigation and disputes, ideally with a regulatory line. Top-tier experience will see you among peers, strong academics expected.
