Senior In-house Litigator

Full Time

Website Burgess Paluch

Australia’s leading specialists in legal recruitment.

Partner level role for commercially savvy, gun litigator. Newly created role at successful, high profile property developer. Top remuneration.

Our client is a high profile, privately owned, and hugely successful property developer who have enjoyed unprecedented growth. As a result of their success, they are now seeking to recruit a gun, senior litigator who can manage and run their commercial disputes. 

This is a significant opportunity to work with the CEO and MD to apply your commercial acumen in a senior role, which will provide the opportunity to be an integral part of the senior management team. It is a newly created role, that will appeal to commercially savvy, tenacious, and successful, senior disputes lawyers who are seeking to transition in-house. It is likely that you are working in private practice at a reputable firm, either as a Partner or Special Counsel. You may be seeking to break away from the constraints of private practice, and enjoy a role that will challenge, excite and utilise your highly developed litigation skills in a dynamic environment, where you will have full control of all matters. The culture is professional, down to earth, and high performing.

Experience in high level construction disputes, while desirable is not essential. You are not a black letter lawyer, although you are still technically very good, but just as importantly, you will have the street smarts and commercial acumen to provide strategies that will assist our client to succeed in their counter claims. You pride yourself on your ability to relate at all levels, and are a pragmatic, solutions focused litigator who is a brilliant strategist.

Our client is offering a career enhancing opportunity with a very enticing remuneration package designed to attract high quality, senior disputes lawyers.
