VACANCY DESCRIPTION

The Melbourne office of one of our oldest clients is looking to welcome a Senior Associate of at least 5 PQE into their shipping litigation team. We’ve had regular contact with the hiring partners in their Australian offices and are happy to guide you along the interview process.

Our Managing Consultant, James, has previously visited Melbourne on several occasions and considers it a vibrant, culturally enriched city full of open-minded people, music and art. As the second largest city in Australia, it houses the offices of many of the world’s leading international private practices.

You will be exposed to wet and dry shipping disputes, advising both shipowners and other businesses in some of the biggest cases in the region. You will be working with a highly experienced Partner and several other experienced lawyers in a collegiate and well-run team. As befitting of a more senior position, you will be expected to foster and generate client relationships and business develop frequently.

The hiring partner has highlighted several advantages of joining the team.

  • Career advancement. The partner is looking for someone who is gunning for partnership. Furthermore, the firm provides a structured approach to career development. Opportunities to business develop will be given and talent and ambition will be rewarded.

  • Remuneration. The firm pays in between the market and magic circle firms. In addition, the work life balance in Australia is slightly better than London or Singapore. They also have good bonus payments commensurate with large international private practices.

  • Opportunity to be at the forefront of the firm’s expansion. Our client is looking to lead the transport and offshore sector in the region. This is an exciting opportunity to get in early and build a practice with the support of a team of highly capable and experienced lawyers.

If the above position is of interest, we will be happy to discuss the specifics of this opportunity or similar opportunities. If you’d like to know more about the team or the APAC market in general, do contact us for a discreet discussion.
