The firm

This small but full service corporate law firm has been established in the market for some time and is known for challenging (and winning) some of the major firms for work.

The role

A specialist Commercial and Corporate Lawyer (4-6 years PAE), this role sits within the firm's Corporate & Commercial Group.

The role will work with senior members of the team to provide advice and transactional services in connection with all types of corporate and commercial transactions.

The role is split between corporate transactions (40%) and general commercial (60%) with some focus on the IP industry. If you have IP experience that's a plus but it's not a requirement.

The break down of work is as follows:

Corporate (40%)

  • Business and share sale transactions - mainly unregulated private treaty transactions and insolvent company asset sale transactions
  • Transaction due diligence
  • Corporate restructure transactions
  • Preparing and advising on shareholders agreements and other co-venturing arrangements
  • Corporate compliance/company secretarial

Commercial (60%)

  • Review and preparation of a broad range of commercial agreements including:
  • All kinds of service agreements
  • Licence agreements
  • Distribution, manufacturing and supply agreements
  • Terms and conditions of trade
  • Personal Properties Securities Act advice
  • Privacy law advice
  • Intellectual property advice, including in relation to the protection of intellectual property (e.g. registration of trade marks)
  • Review and preparation of security documents, general security deeds, deeds of guarantee, loan agreements
  • Business structuring and restructuring - including for the establishment of new businesses, preparation of trusts (discretionary and unit), preparing shareholders and unitholders agreements


It's an opportunity to be an integral part of a firm and their growth. You'll lead matters and have real exposure to clients.

You might be tired of the larger firm environment and are keen to try something new.
