Competition Lawyer | 4-8 years PQE | Auckland

McLeod Duminy Careers

An intermediate to senior level role in a leading competition team. Ideal for someone looking to step up to Senior Associate.

  • Two Excellent Partners
  • Competition Litigation Focus
  • Awarding Winning Work Environment
Join a market-leading competition team, led by two top notch practitioners. The opportunity is for a senior solicitor level lawyer, probably keen to make the step up to Senior Associate in the short term. As well as a career step, you will be able to take a step forward into top quality work across the competition and regulatory space.

Typically you will find yourself working on the following:  
  • assisting clients with NZCC and FMA investigations;
  • acting for clients in any resulting court proceedings;
  • providing competition advice on acquisitions;
  • providing general competition, FTA and securities advice to local and overseas corporate clients;
  • assisting clients with leniency or co-operation applications; and
  • providing training to clients on these issues.  
The team has a bias towards contentious work and so litigation skills will be valuable. Competition experience will be important, but you need not be an out-and-out specialist, just someone who has a strong interest in becoming one.  It is a close knit team, with hands-on partners, but the hope is that this person will develop quickly as a senior member of the team dealing with clients and with more junior lawyers.

The firm has been a leader in creating diversity in their workforce and they continue to win awards for their efforts, as well as for the work environment they have created. You will find a firm that is supportive of your professional and personal goals.
