Job Ref 3119923
Location Auckland CBD
Category Legal
Type Permanent - Full Time
Excellent in-house Legal Counsel opportunity with an ambitious NZX listed company, mainly focused on corporate, investment, and commercial work. 

Our client has a top team across the business, top-tier advisors, and are located in an excellent Auckland location. 
The in-house function here is well established and is genuinely part of the wider business.  The successful candidate will not only be a strong technical lawyer but needs to be a natural at engaging with both internal stakeholders (including at SLT level), external advisors (not just lawyers), and regulators.  
This opportunity is not for a black-letter lawyer - this is an environment where a commercially focused and outcome focused thinker will thrive.  The brief will be diverse and challenging across corporate, commercial, investment, markets, and governance matters.  There will be little to no dispute/contentious work.  

You will need to be confident dealing with a range of advisors - including at times driving matters with top-tier external counsel. 
Our client is open to a range of backgrounds but you will ideally have impressive corporate, M&A, funds, and/or banking & finance experience.  You could be looking to move into your first in-house role from private practice, returning to NZ, or looking for a more exciting in-house lateral move. 
Ideally, you will have at least 4 years PQE to around 8 years PQE but we are open to hearing from profiles outside of that range. 
If you are interested in a confidential discussion, please contact David McGregor on email:; or cellphone: 027 700 2999
