The Opportunity

To keep up with continued growth in our commercial disputes and litigation practice area, we’ve created a new role for a talented and driven 6+ PAE lawyer to join our team as Practice Leader. This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced and versatile lawyer, looking to apply their knowledge and skillset in a fast-paced, friendly and collaborative environment, whilst running their practice and leading a team.

Given the nature of the work and the current mix of the team, hands-on experience in disputes relating to contract law, Australian Consumer Law and the Corporations Act is essential, and experience in relation to director/shareholder disputes and commercial leasing disputes is highly desirable.
