About this role

We are currently looking for a part-time lawyer/senior lawyer to join our friendly, flexible, small but growing commercial law firm in a generalist role (approx. 15-25 hours per week, negotiated span of days/hours).

Initially work will be varied; sometimes simple, sometimes complex, and extending across all of our core service areas. You will be required to manage transactions, as well as ACT/NSW/Federal Court/Tribunal litigation. You will need to be prepared to take a red hot shot at whatever comes your way, and work towards a specialisation in the medium-to-long term.

Selection Criteria

The right person for this position will be:

– Able to prevent and solve legal problems efficiently and effectively; identifying, connecting and leveraging all dots both in and outside the proverbial box.

– Able to explain complicated legal topics – like devastavit, resulting trusts, partitioning and intermeddling – patiently and clearly, in language our clients will understand.

– Affable, with a good sense of humour.

– That special kind of grounded person who wants to be their best possible self at all times; celebrating wins, and learning from mistakes. Motivated and brave enough find their personal niche. Beaming with positive energy and fresh ideas.

– Inspired by all-things-law-tech, and exceptionally comfortable with computers.

Mandatory Qualifications

Admitted to the High Court of Australia and ACT Supreme Court rolls of legal practitioners (or interstate equivalent with eligibility to transfer).

Current ACT practicing certificate (or interstate equivalent).

Skills/Experience

Ideally at least 4 years PQE, however, if you’re not quite there yet and we sound like a good fit we would still like to hear from you.

Advanced computing skills preferred, including familiarity with common document automation techniques and popular digital signing services.

Salary

Salary will be negotiated with suitable applicants on a case-by-case basis appropriately reflective of skills, experience and agreed hours.
