You will simply not have access to better corporate work anywhere in New Zealand. The partners at this firm all have top tier backgrounds, by way of London and New York, and are recognised as the front-runners across all types of transactional corporate work in New Zealand.

Their name continues to be attached to headline-making transactions that lead the market not just in size, but also complexity. They are also at the forefront of innovative structures for their local and international clients. At the moment they estimate their market share of public M&A work is about 50%.

The client base includes numerous listed companies, Private Equity companies here and overseas, private companies and a handful of very high net worth individuals. They operate as one team and so you will have the opportunity to be involved in a wide range of the work, and at all levels.

The philosophy is that associates represent the firm and so a sense of ownership is encouraged. This can be seen in the day-to-day running of matters, and also through bonus schemes that are calculated on an individual and firm-wide basis. Salaries are well above market and recognise the calibre of people they employ. They admit that hours can be long reflecting the progress of the deals, but with no culture of presenteeism there is down time as well. The size of the firm and the personalities involved also means that office and career politics have no place and admin and procedure are kept to a minimum.

To be considered for this role you will need very strong academics and top tier training in a good corporate team. They are very keen to consider those returning from overseas and, for those considering a move in the future, they have a track record of helping their lawyers find opportunities via contacts in London and New York.
