You’ll  have excellent technical drafting and advocacy skills, the ability to build fantastic relationships with clients, and be a highly effective communicator.  You'll have the drive and expertise to develop the practice across a broad range of family law work, including in particular:
  • Relationship property advice and  litigation;
  • Estate and trust litigation;
however there’s the ability to take this role in the direction that suits you and your experience best.  You’ll have the chance to develop your practice and profile with the support of our collegial and collaborative litigation team, and to develop your skills in managing junior staff.  You’ll also enjoy the benefits of our excellent training and support.
We are proud of our diverse and inclusive culture and our reputation for putting people first in everything we do.  We are committed to promoting flexible work practices, so if this role interests you, please talk to us about what you would need to make it work.
