Solicitor - Litigation team

Buddle Findlay is one of New Zealand's top law firms with offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.  We are a progressive, dynamic firm at the forefront of the legal profession.

At Buddle Findlay, we believe that our business is as much about people as it is about the law.  That is why we've created a culture where people like coming to work and they can thrive both personally and professionally.

Our Christchurch office has an outstanding reputation working with great clients, a diverse and inclusive culture and talented staff.  A rare opportunity has presented itself in our general litigation team.  This team has not had to recruit at this level before as positions are usually filled at summer clerk level.  Vacancies have been created by overseas travel. 

We're looking for a solicitor with between one to five years post qualification experience to join and work for a three partner civil litigation team.  You will work on a range of commercial civil litigation matters including, local government, insolvency, construction and insurance issues.  Prior experience in disputed insurance claims arising out of the Canterbury earthquakes is not essential but would be of particular use.  You will be involved in a variety of challenging work that will allow you to successfully develop and progress your legal career.

If you are a highly motivated self-starter who is able to provide pragmatic and client-focused solutions, then we would like to hear from you.  In return you'll be part of a close knit team working on interesting and challenging matters, in a supportive and inclusive environment within a national firm that offers comprehensive training, competitive remuneration and benefits and great social activities.

Please contact Margot Elworthy, Human Resources Coordinator, for a confidential discussion on 04 462 0835 or send your application to recruitment@buddlefindlay.com.
