Commercial Litigator

About the role  

We have plenty on in the litigation space, so we are expanding our team. We are looking for a Commercial Litigator (Intermediate level, 4-7 years PQE) with a real interest in tech and IP to join the team.

We’re a specialist firm working predominantly in tech, media and IP law, and our contentious work is usually in those areas, or relates to corporate disputes for clients operating in those industries. That said, the role is varied and it is likely that you will deal with issues that you haven’t encountered before, so there will be plenty of scope for you to develop. You’ll have the opportunity to work on high quality matters, directly engaging with clients and barristers to manage disputes end to end – from initial pleadings through to appearing in court.

We have strong transactional and IP teams, and so as well as engaging contentious work, you’ll also help them to deliver commercial outcomes for clients.

About you

You’ll have strong technical and interpersonal skills, that you apply to deliver quality client work, and to collaborate with others in the team and externally for the benefit of our clients and your own development.

You’ve got experience across a range of commercial litigation matters, and will bring curiosity, a drive for excellence, the ability to work through complex issues and great organisational skills to boot.

Working with us

We're a market leading corporate, commercial and litigation law firm focusing on Tech, Media and IP, and our litigation practice is busy.

We are all about expanding horizons – for our team and for our clients. Our team are paid highly competitive base salaries, and enjoy a range of benefits while working as part of a fun, supportive environment. Our remote working policy gives us all flexibility. We have a great, top floor CBD office which has a mix of internal offices and spacious open plan areas. There is plenty of space for both collaboration and quiet work.

If you are keen to work with some of New Zealand’s (and the world’s) leading organisations, particularly in the technology, media and innovation space, and some of NZ’s leading lawyers, please get in touch.

Immediate start available.  While we’re ideally looking for someone full-time, we are open to exploring other options, so please get in touch for a confidential chat.

Direct applications only – strictly no agencies.

All applications treated in strict confidence.
