Banking/Finance – Top Tier Firm – Auckland

Our client is a premium New Zealand firm.

Their Banking & Finance team handles a broad range of top market transactions for both lender and borrower clients. In this team you’ll get access to a variety of areas, including:

  • Structured finance.
  • Leveraged finance.
  • Acquisition finance.
  • Mezzanine finance.
  • Project finance.
  • Syndicated lending.
  • Debt restructuring.

The team’s client base comprises a diverse mix of domestic and overseas entities spanning across a broad range of industry sectors including financial services, property development, climate, transport, logistics, infrastructure, energy, hospitality, agriculture/forestry and telecommunications.

The team is tremendously busy. Now that New Zealand’s borders are open, Associates are leaving to explore the world, leading to a vacancy in their Auckland-based team for a high quality Senior Solicitor or Senior Associate Banking & Finance Lawyer.

While some experience in the New Zealand market is preferred, they are very interested in Solicitors qualified in other common-law jurisdictions, particularly Australia, England & Wales, Ireland, Scotland, and Canada.

In order to be considered you will have:

  • Qualified as a Solicitor in a common law jurisdiction (probably New Zealand, Australia, or England & Wales, although applicants from other jurisdictions with appropriate experience will be considered also).
  • Gained at least 4 and up to 10 years’ experience (which may include your training contract, if there is one in your jurisdiction) in Banking & Finance law either in private practice, in-house, or a combination.
  • Willingness to learn and the ability to work hard along with a common sense, down-to-earth approach.
  • First rate drafting skills.
  • Commerciality, and the ability to work in a sometimes fast-paced, intellectually challenging environment.
  • An interest in mentoring junior Lawyers.
  • The ability to deal with clients and colleagues in a relaxed and confident manner.

This is a sensational opportunity for a common law-qualified Banking & Finance Lawyer to move to a very highly regarded New Zealand team. Sponsorship, a contribution to relocation costs, an excellent salary and benefits offering, high quality work, and genuine long term career prospects await successful applicants.
