As an accomplished Senior Associate, you understand that getting the right outcome for your clients can be a complex process. Back-end construction work requires tact, tenacity and a commercial instinct to decipher which strategy to employ. Importantly, you need the right team behind you, to deliver the best results.

If you are considering taking your career forward with a new business, you should consider this top-tier Melbourne construction team.

Within the Australian market, few firms are able to offer the expertise, resources and reputation to rival this firm. As you develop and track towards senior leadership, they will provide the direction and sponsorship from above to achieve your goals and an exceptional team of Associates below you, to deliver on your objectives.

The Role

Working as part of a cohesive national construction practice, you will play a key role in driving forward the back-end construction practice by

  • Running a range of construction disputes matters from instruction to completion, including litigation, arbitration and other ADR.
  • Managing and building effective relationships with a wide range of clients including developers, owners, financiers and contractors
  • Supervising and developing junior lawyers within the team
  • Supporting in broader practice development goals

In Return

You can expect exceptional support from a team of Partners and peers who are at the forefront of their industry. You will be rewarded with a highly competitive compensation, incorporating a market leading salary and benefits package. You will be supported to develop key aspects of your technical, leadership and client facing capabilities and long-term guidance to steer your career to your goals, be that Partnership or otherwise.
