The firm

The firm is a boutique commercial law firm in the heart of the CBD that includes an impressive balcony that is utilised for lunches and staff and client drinks throughout the week.

It is a firm that is run by top-tier lawyers who were looking for a different working environment, but retaining the same quality of work. Lawyers are set a very achievable target of 5 to 5.5 billable hours a day, and can elect to work remotely during the week as their needs suit.

The salary range is circa $160-190k - depending on your experience.

About you

You will have at least 6 years of experience, working in a corporate/commercial practice. The firm is not fussy in terms of academics and/or firm you are currently at. What is of more interest to them is the hands-on experience you have gained to date, alongside your attitude.

Culture is very important to the firm, and accordingly, you will have a positive mind-set and not afraid of being involved in business development and the occassional precedent update or two.

The partners are open minded, and are happy to consider those wanting to work a part-time basis (ie. 4 days per week).

The position would suit somebody that is looking to maintain a high calibre of work, but in a more relaxed office setting. You would also be keen on developing junior lawyers (there are three in which you would delegete work to and help develop).


If you would like to remain doing high-quality work, but are tired of the same-old law firm and high billable hours, then this position could be for you. Please contact Geoff Denton at
