Solicitor - Commercial/ICT

Buddle Findlay is one of New Zealand's leading commercial and public law firms, with offices in Auckland Wellington and Christchurch.  We are looking for someone with two to five years PQE to join our Wellington ICT team.

Buddle Findlay has an open and approachable client-focused culture, with a determination to continually provide the highest quality of service to our clients and a fantastic working environment for our staff.  Our Wellington ICT team does a full range of commercial contracts but has a particular focus on the ICT sector.  Our national ICT practice is ranked in the top band in all the major directories and you’d be working directly with, and be mentored by, a partner and senior team members who are recognised as leading lawyers in this practice area.

Your work would primarily involve drafting, reviewing and negotiating a wide range of complex commercial agreements with a focus on ICT contracts and advising on legal issues relating to procurement processes, data use and protection, and intellectual property rights.  There’s opportunity to manage your own files and client relationships while being supported by a team of genuine experts.  An excellent remuneration package, benefits and training are also provided.

We need someone who has excellent analytical skills and sound commercial judgment.  We pride ourselves on providing pragmatic and client-focused solutions to our clients every time.  Our team is looking for a new recruit who will take their work very seriously without taking themselves too seriously!

If this sounds like you, please call Clare Fairgray on 09 363 1025 or send your CV along with a cover letter and academic transcript to  As this position requires an immediate start, you need to already be residing in and legally entitled to work in New Zealand.  If you have any questions about this position please contact Clare.
