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.

We are looking for a superstar to join our successful and busy litigation team in Christchurch. The work in this team is interesting, and you will have the opportunity to work within a team that values, trusts and empowers its employees. Our clients are varied and include New Zealand’s biggest insurers, corporates, SME’s, not for profits and individuals in a range of industries. We provide advice to local, national and internationally located clients, either leading on a project or providing assistance as part of a national support for the wider firm offering.

The ideal candidate will have experience or interest in one or more of the following areas:

• trust litigation
• insurance litigation
• civil and commercial litigation
• construction litigation.
In return you’ll get the opportunity to:
• work alongside partners with an accessible, open door policy
• get new and interesting work opportunities
• receive multiple levels of support from peers, colleagues, partners and professionals
• receive ongoing training and development
• be immersed in our fantastic culture, something that we’re very proud of
• be exposed to great professional support networks.

We put a lot of time and thought into making Duncan Cotterill a great firm to work for – a firm where you enjoy work, are challenged and achieve. Our staff are encouraged to work in a balanced way, get involved in community events, sports and social activities, and stay in touch with friends and family. We think an empowering culture is essential.
