Solicitor or senior solicitor - Corporate/commercial

We are currently looking for a solicitor with between two and seven years' post qualification experience to join our corporate team in Wellington.

You will be joining a highly experienced and busy team specialising in mergers and acquisitions, capital raising and corporate advisory.  We work for top clients on high profile transactions, including recently working on: Infratil and Brookfield’s proposed NZ$3.4b deal to acquire Vodafone New Zealand, Contact Energy's acquisition of 49% of Simply Energy, and formation of the DrylandCarbon carbon farming joint venture between Air New Zealand, Contact, Genesis and Z Energy.

We are happy to consider candidates with pure private practice M&A experience, those with some relevant in-house corporate and commercial experience, as well as banking and finance lawyers looking to move into a corporate team.

You will need to be the cream of the crop, and ready to make your mark.  You'll have great initiative and always deliver to the highest standards.  This is the perfect chance to set yourself up in an intellectually challenging and fast paced environment working with a great team.

This opportunity will allow you to be involved in a variety of challenging work from inception to delivery with clients – there are always opportunities to step up.

We want our lawyers to become leaders in their field and to play a leadership role in the firm, whatever their age or level of experience - and this plays a large part in making Buddle Findlay a great and innovative place to work.  We believe strong leadership drives our culture and that in turn drives our business performance by encouraging, fostering and supporting excellence and performance-oriented behaviour.

For more information or if you'd like to join the team, please call Clare Fairgray on 09 363 1025 or send your CV along with a cover letter and academic transcript to
