Banking Lawyer | Senior Associate | Auckland

McLeod Duminy Careers

This opportunity for a senior banking lawyer with this top tier firm, will allow you to fulfill your potential.

  • Great career progression
  • Growing banking team
  • Broad transactional experience
Very few top-tier firms are actively seeking to grow their senior ranks, but the workflow and leverage of the team means that the need is for a senior practitioner, and so you will likely need at least 7 years' PQE and the ability to stand on your own two feet with clients and colleagues.

The current role works with two partners working across a wide range of banking and finance matters. Although they each have key areas of work, it is very much a collaborative team.  They are on the panel for all the major banks, as well as acting for some major corporate borrowers, and other domestic and offshore lenders and borrowers on all aspects of financing transactions.  Maintaining a variety from day-to-day will therefore not be an issue. 

The role will see you working on the development and investment side of property finance and includes acquisition and project finance, local authority funding arrangements etc.  You will have at least 7 years' experience and need to have reached a level in your career where you are comfortable running your own files, interacting directly with clients and taking on the supervision of junior solicitors all whilst enjoying a top-tier environment at a firm that truly values diversity.
