Are you an overseas qualified lawyer looking for a career move to Australia?

For more than 18 months Australia has had its international borders closed to South Africa and the world. That is all about change, with the border set to open soon.

Whether you are seeking to move to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, or Canberra, Taylor Root’s international career management team can provide you with an in-depth insight into the Australian legal landscape as well as assist you with visa, immigration, and relocation information.

Taylor Root is Australia’s leading legal recruitment firm. We have over 30 years of experience assisting international lawyers and expats transition back into the Australian legal market and we are the preferred recruitment partner to all the major Australian law firms for the supply of international lawyers. We are proud to have partnered with the leading firms across Australia throughout our history and will continue to do so in the years ahead.

Right now is the perfect time to consider that career move. Our clients are actively seeking internationally qualified lawyers to relocate to Australia in 2022.

Whether this is definitely the next move you wish to make or you are simply interested in hearing more about Australia, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Australian Private Practice team.
