The Opportunity

A rare gem with an almost blank canvas to create the perfect legal services platform within an existing brand. This unique position as Managing Director - Law, is the perfect chance to build and lead a commercial law firm with strong networks already in place.

It's an opportunity to be a part of a dynamic and truly entrepreneurial professional services team.

The Role

You will be responsible for the establishment of a new legal division to service an existing network of professional services clients. With service and innovation at the core, you will further develop and implement the strategy of this new commercial law firm offering across a broad business offering in property, intellectual property, commercial law, employment advisory and litigation.

It's not an easy role, you will need to grow and mentor a team of lawyers that share the same commercially minded objectives that can work collaboratively to achieve the desired outcomes.

You need to build and maintain strong relationships with key internal stakeholders and new clients with a constant eye on innovation and flair in service delivery.

About you

To be successful you will need to have strong commercial acumen, be an excellent communicator and a desire to succeed.

As an experienced lawyer with at least 10 years post admission experience, you must be able to demonstrate an excellent understanding of the legal profession and know what it takes to deliver efficient high quality legal advice.

You might currently hold a senior role with a large or boutique firm but importantly be confident in your field of expertise and ability to grow and manage a team of lawyers.

True to its innovative style, the model is not locked, you might have a portable practice and be looking for equity or be a senior lawyer looking for the right opportunity to make a move away from the traditional path.

Please contact Brad Booth on 0427 670 626 for a confidential discussion.
