The role

Our client, a pre-eminent international law firm, is looking to add an Associate to its Corporate team.

The team

Our client's Corporate team is one of the most respected in the world and has a client base that includes more than half of the Global Fortune 500 and many of Australia and Asia Pacific's most innovative and successful companies. The team advises on both public M&A and private equity transactions, and counts prominent private equity firms among its clientele.

Our client

As a fully integrated global partnership, our client combines its first-rate global standards with its in-depth local market expertise to deliver a truly international M&A offering. You will benefit from constant exposure to top-tier domestic work along with multi-jurisdictional matters from around Asia Pacific and our client's global network - opportunities that few law firms in Australia can provide.

Our client offers the close-knit and inclusive culture of a smaller law firm with the resources, reputation and market-leading work of a global elite firm. Our client really cares about its lawyers and is often leading the way in terms of employee benefits. Progressive parental leave policies, generous bonuses, across the board pay increases, remote working allowances, wellness allowances, additional annual leave days, opportunities for its lawyers to work in other jurisdictions and to have meaningful interactions with its clients are some examples of how this firm is thoughtful about its lawyers and what might matter to them.


This role would suit an enthusiastic and emotionally intelligent lawyer looking to:

  • Gain exposure to an international law firm including access to other markets and jurisdictions. Our client has offices in 31 countries across five continents and a demonstrated track record of assisting its lawyers in international career moves within its global network.
  • Develop as a recognised practitioner in the field by leveraging a comprehensive training program in a broad range of important client-focused skills, and by working with market-leading practitioners on high-value, high-profile mandates.
  • Play a key part in a leaner team where you may have brighter career progression prospects.
  • Benefit from an approachable, collegial, and team-based way of working.
