What we look for in new recruits

We look for people who are intelligent and resourceful.  

We value good people skills, both within the office environment and because we build strong relationships with our clients.

We expect hard work, but our focus is on productivity and results rather than the number of hours you spend in the office.  We imagine that you, like most of us, would rather spend your weekends at the beach (or doing whatever else takes your fancy) than at work.

What we offer

We offer challenging work and excellent opportunities for career progression.  We pay competitive salaries to attract top talent.

You’ll have access to regular training and mentoring from partners and senior staff.  Many of our lawyers and legal executives are leaders in their fields in Northland.

You’ll be working in new, modern offices with access to excellent technology and legal resources.

We know you’ll want to have fun too, which is why we have a busy firm social calendar.

Interested in joining us?

We are always on the lookout for talented individuals to join our firm, regardless of whether we have specific vacancies. If you are interested in joining us, please forward your CV in complete confidence to:
