Employment Lawyer – Associate / Senior Associate


5 – 10 years qualified – Auckland

Duncan Cotterill has five offices in five distinct markets underpinned by an energetic, diverse and collegial partnership. We think as one, but grow as five. As a full service law firm we deliver quality legal advice and exceptional value to our clients who include leading private and public sector organisations and high net-worth individuals.

Our Auckland Employment team is seeking a talented Associate/Senior Associate to join us on our journey. This fantastic opportunity will provide you with a wide range of exposure to exciting work with plenty of development opportunities.

You will have sound technical knowledge and experience in the employment law field, combined with excellent commercial awareness and aptitude. Taking pride in your work and having a strong eye for detail, you will bring the presence of mind, skills, agility and attitude to respond to the varied and interesting instructions, as they arise.

The role will be a stimulating and rewarding one, engaging with a broad range of both international and national clients, across multiple sectors. You will have the opportunity to work autonomously, with mentoring and guidance, as needed, from the three partners in the team and two Senior Associates. The work in this team is diverse and challenging, spanning the full spectrum of employment law, including health and safety, human rights, immigration and disputes. This is a strong, collegial team with a great culture and a flat structure.

Clients have described the team as ‘…a great practice to deal with. Their size means that you get a sense of family and community, but they’re large enough to have great networks and expertise. The firm focuses on building strong relationships with their clients and is passionate about what it does.’ Client quote in the Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2021 directory. Duncan Cotterill’s employment team is the largest practice of New Zealand’s full-service firms, providing you access to various expertise and exposure to the full firm’s clients and resources.

This is the perfect time to advance your career in a supportive, highly successful and growing firm. With stunning offices in the Britomart, and a team of pragmatic and down to earth people who believe in life outside of work, this is where you will want to be.
