Growing national firm seeking a Partner to head their Corporate/M&A team in Auckland.

  • Strong North & South Island presence
  • Highly regarded Corporate Advisory Team
The firm is a longstanding firm that employs over 150 staff. They are home to a number of specialist teams dotted across the North and South Island. They are well equipped to service national as well as international clients.

Under the Corporate Advisory umbrella, the team already consists of six Partners each focusing on their own specialist areas across corporate/M&A, general commercial, financial markets and investments, IP, technology and competition law.  The team acts for a diverse range of clients including multi-nationals and businesses of all shapes and sizes, listed and unlisted from a wide variety of industries.  They also work for not-for profits, iwi, local and regional bodies, ministries and other Crown departments. The team is now looking to grow further and identified a need to have a dedicated Corporate/M&A Partner based in their Auckland office.

Culture fit and leadership capabilities will be at the heart of the decision. It goes without saying that at this level you'll have the proven ability to manage existing client relationships well and win business.  You’ll feel confident in a client following and depending on the size of your practice, the role can offer you the opportunity to have some skin in the game and join as an Equity Partner or it could suit someone entering as a Salaried Partner who has the ambition to further develop and grow their practice with the backing of a supportive, national team.  They have a good track record in this respect and count to numerous success stories in recent times.

Overall the firm values a non-hierarchical, friendly working culture and an entrepreneurial mindset.  They have excellent support structures in place and are proud to offer their clients a top tier service, mid-tier pricing and boutique - style interaction. 

All discussions will be in the strictest confidence.
