Associate level commercial lawyer

We have a full time position available for an associate level commercial lawyer.  The work will primarily come from our specialty in business, succession and rural law.  However, we also act for our commercial and rural client base in family law and litigation matters.

Conrad Law is a small firm that specialises in serving the legal needs of small to medium sized businesses, rural clients and providing high level succession planning. At Conrad Law, the quality of work and providing value to the client is more important than making end of month budgets.

We are looking for a commercial lawyer at an associate level, with solid experience in general commercial work including property, leasing, employment law and commercial agreements.  Some exposure to commercial litigation will also be highly regarded. We are looking for someone who is able to independently manage tasks and files allocated to them, with general supervision and strategic guidance.  The successful candidate will be interested in developing their career in commercial law with a focus on business and rural client needs and rural and high net worth succession planning. Lawyers receive extensive mentoring and are encouraged to develop expertise in an area of law they are interested in, that provides value to our client base.

A high level of technological literacy would be highly regarded. The litigation and family law matters we take on, often require significant financial analysis. Candidates with a dual accountancy degree or bookkeeping skills will also be highly regarded.  Experience in litigation, family law, or employment law is relevant.

Whilst we are looking for candidates with commercial experience, graduates or near graduates with a strong academic record, relevant work experience and demonstrated knowledge of the relevant law, will be considered. We will only be considering applicants with a commitment to a long term future in the Townsville region.

A salary commensurate with experience will be negotiated with the successful candidate.
