Working for us : what sets us apart?

Most law firm websites have a page dedicated to the various “benefits” they offer their staff, often including:

  • flexible working arrangements
  • employee assistance programmes
  • social functions
  • flu vacs
  • competitive salaries
  • discounted legal transactions

For us, these are a given, an expectation and fundamental to a contemporary, progressive workplace rather than a selling point or noteworthy. 

What sets us apart from other firms and what we see as the real benefits of joining our team are:

  • the importance we place on training, mentoring and supporting your career progression
  • how intentional we are about support structures and every lawyer having regular, dedicated time for supervision with their supervising Partner 
  • we know the value and benefits that come from having accessible senior lawyers who are keen, willing and able to offer guidance and assistance when needed
  • we are open and honest about our expectation that senior staff learn how to teach and mentor others and we provide support, encouragement and opportunities for this to occur
  • we focus on ensuring everyone can achieve their full potential and reach their career goals
  • our approach fosters a genuinely supportive, encouraging and empowering culture and provides opportunities for ongoing learning, development and refining of legal and business skills.

Alongside this, we are proud to be an equitable employer, we are signatories of the New Zealand Law Society Gender Equality Charter and also members of Womens Empowerment Principles (WEPS).  We support a range of community initiatives and are honorary solicitor for a number of local groups and charitable organisations.   

We also love to hear from our team – ideas are encouraged, innovation is welcomed and we are invested in our joint future.

Finally, we are beyond excited to move into our brand new, purpose built premises in early 2022!
