The opportunity

We have an exciting opportunity in our Sydney office for a part-time 4-5 year PQE lawyer with recoveries and restructuring/insolvency experience. You will be client facing, build rapport and act as a trusted adviser to gain the confidence of our clients.

Working closely in a growing team under a leading, supportive and friendly partner, you will act for a major bank, and on a range of high profile banking litigation and insolvency matters.

In this role, you will be advising financial institutions and insolvency practitioners on an extensive range of technical and complex legal issues of both a contentious and non-contentious nature.
