Employment Opportunities: Associate & Senior Solicitor

March 1, 2022

We are currently looking for two new members for our team. A Senior Solicitor and an Associate. We are happy to discuss both roles before application so please contact brigitte.morten@franksogilvie.co.nz

Applications close Wednesday 23 March 2022

Who we are 

Franks Ogilvie specialises in public and commercial law. We work with a range of clients across government, political parties / causes, industry groups andnot-for-profits. Our small team enjoys new challenges, tricky public policy challenges and finding solutions where others might not.

 

We expect the same from you.


You would be expected to manage client files and advise across the practice. Our preference is for someone with public law or commercial law experience but demonstrated energy and commitment to learning new skills would be recognised.

For the Senior Solicitor role:

About you:

  • 3+ years PQE with experience gained in commercial law, a regulatory or     public law/litigation role – whether in a law firm, government or crown     owned entity;
  • An interest in learning and applying your knowledge and skills in a  Public Law context;
  • NZ qualified; and
  • Good academics (B average or higher in your degree LLB is a must). A degree in     economics or financial literacy would be a bonus. 

 

You may be looking to take a step out of big law firm compartmentalisation, government or regulatory employment into a role where there is more room for rapid advancement. We rarely work on the same kind of matter twice.  This role is full time. We are happy to discuss the role and type of work we do before application so please drop us a line.

 For the Associate role:

About you:

  • 7+ years PQE with experience gained in commercial law– whether in a law firm,     government or crown owned entity;
  • An interest in learning and applying your knowledge and skillset within a     commercial law context
  • NZ qualified; and
  • Possibly looking for part-time/ flexible work arrangements.

 

You may be looking to take a step out of the big law firm compartmentalisation, the internal government or regulatory space and into a role where there is room for you to learn and progress. We rarely work on the same kind of matter twice. We are happy to discuss the role and type of work we do before application so please drop us a line.

Give the team a call

We’re likely to know who makes the decisions, why, and how politics or the law can compel you or trip you up.
If it takes less than 20 minutes we rarely charge.
There are not many specialist public lawyers. Even fewer have commercial experience. We start and end with commercial interests at heart.
