Rare & Pivotal career opportunity with leading National mid-tier law firm – Key role – High profile matters -Prominent Insolvency practice

Our client is a leading mid-tier national law firm, with several offices throughout Australia, providing strategic commercial solutions for clients in any global region. Their Melbourne office has a well established and ever-growing client base of corporate and commercial clients, offering challenging and often ‘high profile’ matters.  

They are now looking to appoint an experienced insolvency/commercial disputes lawyer, to a key leadership role, in their Melbourne offices working closely with highly regarded and affable Partners/Senior Professionals in their specialist insolvency team.  
In this role you will have extensive contact with high profile and valuable clients of the firm, and will be an integral part of the team’s client management strategy. As well as highly developed litigation skills, you will be an excellent communicator and able to inspire and lead the less experienced colleagues within the practice.
This is an exciting, perhaps a career defining opportunity and will involve a mix of both front/back end insolvency and commercial dispute resolution matters eg.

  • Insolvency/Restructuring;
  • General Contract/Commercial Disputes/Resolution;
  • Recoveries; 
  • Director advisory & Investigations.

**Applicants will have exceptional client service skills, strong academics & experience in complex Supreme & Federal Court matters.**

Although a larger firm, the culture here is personalised and ‘merit’ based, they clearly understand their people are the key to the firm’s success.  They value and acknowledge the contribution their lawyers make, and actively promote the team to build and develop their skills.  

There is a genuine career path for the right lawyer in this firm. They also offer a generous salary package plus other staff benefits.  

With a collegiate atmosphere, loads of high quality client contact, mentoring by leading Partners and a busy, varied practice, this firm is a welcome alternative to the anonymity & isolation of most larger environments. Enjoy your work again, and give your career the boost you deserve!
