An exceptional opportunity to join New Zealand’s leading specialist corporate law firm 

About Harmos Horton Lusk (HHL)

HHL is New Zealand's leading specialist corporate legal advisory firm. Its core focus is "top end" specialist corporate transactional and legal advice. Since its establishment, HHL has been retained in a number of the most complex and challenging M&A transactions in New Zealand. It is the market leader in advising on public company takeovers, and regularly advises on primary and secondary NZX listed equity offerings and other non-listed securities structuring and issuances. HHL is regularly sought after to provide strategic board and governance advice, and has also assisted clients before Takeovers Panel hearings and with Financial Markets Authority investigations.

Don't just take our word for it. HHL is independently recognised by legal ranking publications, including Chambers Global, Chambers Asia Pacific, Asia Pacific Legal 500, IFLR 1000, AsiaLaw Profiles and NZ Lawyer. In addition, the transactions that HHL advises on are regularly nominated for, or win, transaction awards including deal of the year awards at the INFINZ Awards, IJ Global Awards, Australasian Law Awards, NZ Law Awards and Finance Asia Awards.

About the Opportunity

Right now, HHL is recruiting for two intermediate corporate lawyers and one senior corporate lawyer to join its team.

You will have the opportunity to work with HHL’s directors in advising some of New Zealand's leading listed companies, private equity firms and corporates. Depending on your experience, you will help manage transactions and help to supervise junior lawyers. In return you will be rewarded with the opportunity to work in a dynamic and fun workplace and to advance within the firm.

If future travel is important to you, you will be given training and experience that can take you anywhere (HHL has helped a number of its alumni in obtaining positions at leading international law firms in London and New York).

About you

Successful candidates will have:

·         an outstanding academic record;

·         top tier national or international firm experience (2 years minimum); and

·         strong interpersonal skills, with the ability to communicate effectively at all levels.

If you are a high achiever with a strong desire to learn and grow professionally, this is the opportunity for you.
