Professional Support Lawyer


Permanent – Part Time (20 hours a week)

6+ years qualified – Christchurch 

We have a rare opportunity to join our high performing commercial team as a professional support lawyer. This role focuses on the property and trusts work within the commercial team. This well-established role is sought by many, but hard to find.  You will be able to utilise your legal skills and strategic thinking in a challenging environment but without time recording, budgets or client demands.

This role supports the corporate and commercial team and ideally you will have built your legal career in this area. Key to your success will be your ability to be proactive around developments in the law, training and upskilling others, assistance with business development opportunities and working as part of a busy team.  Excellent legal drafting, communication skills and experience in property and trust law are required.

You will be responsible for developing and maintaining the firm’s precedent collection and identifying and advising relevant stakeholders of legislative changes. You will also support the firm with client briefings and articles and identify potential legal issues or development opportunities for the firm’s lawyers and their clients.  The ability to share your knowledge in training sessions on legal topics is also expected.

Naturally, you will be confident, friendly, professional, helpful, and have great communication and time management skills.

You will sit within our commercial team alongside another professional support lawyer. Our professional support staff are highly valued by the firm.  This role provides a unique chance to further your private practice career in a more flexible but senior role.  We are open to discussing part time and flexible arrangements.
