This has contributed to high productivity levels as individuals can work in the environment that best suits them, and an extremely low staff turnover rate.

Leading a team of two Senior Associate, 2 Associates, a Trainee, and a Paralegal, you will also be a mentor and offer support and guidance to help them progress their careers and grow professionally.

Given the firm's penchant for promoting lawyers to Partnership internally, it is very rare for a role at this level to become available. It is an exciting time to join as they embark on a journey to become one of the key national players and make waves in the market. You can expect to receive a highly competitive salary, a bonus on your billings, in addition to a bonus based on team performance, and on any work that you refer to other departments.
