Corporate Associate

Beacon Legal

We're working with a leading Melbourne law firm with a very highly regarded corporate practice.

  • Top-tier Melbourne corporate practice.
  • Excellent culture, remuneration and benefits.
  • Genuine progression opportunities available.
We're working with a leading Melbourne law firm with a very highly regarded corporate practice. The firm provides a specialist corporate/commercial offering and focuses on private and public M&A, joint ventures, private equity and equity capital markets transactions.
The firm is renowned for its dynamic and flexible offering when compared to large, international law firms. All of the firm's Directors have made a conscious decision to move away from the big firm environment and have developed their own unique way of practising law. The size of the firm makes controlling the culture a lot easier.
Another key advantage is the scope for progression within the firm. Junior and mid-level lawyers can expect open conversations about their progression pathways, with realistic targets in place to keep them motivated.
The firm pays above market salaries to attract top-tier talent to the practice.

Key Points:
  • Exposure to some of the best corporate work in Melbourne across the M&A, ECM and private equity space;
  • Genuine opportunity for progression, without the politics of a big firm enviornment - not to mention the queue of people lining up for a promotion;
  • A young, dynamic, innovative culture built on high quality work but a fantastic team environment;
  • Above-market remuneration to attract top talent;
  • The opportunity to learn from Partners who have had success in larger law firm environments

About You:
  • Admission as a solicitor in Australia;
  • At least 3 PQE gained from a reputable corporate practice - strong preference for lawyers from national or international firms who are looking for a cultural change;
  • Experience in high value corporate transactions across the M&A, PE and ECM space.
  • A desire to work as part of a close-knit team is essential. The firm promotes a collaborative, sociable approach to working and maintains that culture is one of it's biggest selling points.
