About the role  

An opportunity has arisen for a senior lawyer with a passion for technology, media and telecommunications to join our market leading team.

The work will generally be commercial, with a focus on a wide range of technology, media and telecommunications issues and projects, e.g.: procurement and implementation, emerging technologies, “as-a-service” delivery models, broadcast and communications, fintech, data privacy and cyber-security.  The successful candidate will also be involved in corporate/commercial deals that are required to create and exploit these technologies, including via sale, joint venture, licensing etc.

The role is a varied one, and as a specialist firm, you will be challenged with, and learn from, issues that you may not have encountered before.

About you

Excellent people skills are vital as you will be encouraged to develop junior staff and your networks, and to participate in the operation of the firm outside pure legal work.

The ideal candidate will have corporate and/or commercial legal experience (7 PQE) with some exposure to technology, media, telecommunications, data privacy and/or intellectual property.  You will also be a team player with a genuine desire to keep learning, really get to understand our clients’ businesses, and contribute to the culture of the firm.  If you do not have this experience but have pure corporate/M&A/financial services experience and a passion for technology, media and telecommunications we would also be keen to speak with you.

If you are keen to work with some of New Zealand's (and the world's) leading organisations, particularly in the technology, media and telecommunications space, and with a great team, apply now!

You will receive a competitive salary and other benefits, while getting to work in a fun and supportive environment.
