The role

Our client, a major Australian corporate law firm, is looking to add an Associate and/or a Senior Associate to its growing Corporate M&A/ECM team.

In this role, you will work with two highly regarded Partners who are known to be friendly and great to work with. One of those Partners has been at the firm for his entire career which is testament to the firm's interest in progressing its lawyers.

The team

Our client's Corporate team is the 'go-to' legal team for complex mid-market transactions in Australia. The team has a particular expertise in mergers and acquisitions and equity capital markets. They act for numerous public companies and regularly advise on primary capital raisings (such as initial public offerings), rights issues and formal takeovers. In addition to transactional work, the team advises extensively on all aspects of the Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules, including on ongoing compliance obligations for listed entities.

Our client

Our client has more than 560 people, including 128 Partners operating out of its offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. Its clients include ASX top 200, major global foreign corporations, ASX mid and small caps, Government enterprises and large and medium private corporations.


This role would suit an Associate and/or a Senior Associate who is looking to:

  • strategically join a leaner team with brighter prospects for career progression while still benefitting from support from the firm's broader Corporate team;
  • improve work/life synergy in a friendly working environment and enjoy a less 'intense' way of working without compromising on quality of work; and
  • work directly with the Partners and benefit from one-on-one training (this is particularly relevant for Associates currently working in much larger teams).
