Join an Esteemed Partnership and Advance Your Career!

This prestigious firm has established a reputation for exceptional financial performance, consistently achieving $3.5M+ per 100-point partner over the past decade. With a young and highly collaborative partnership, the firm is dedicated to continued growth and development, targeting a 20% to 30% increase in its Partner ranks in the next 12 months in their Queensland office.

The company provides a comprehensive array of commercial services and is highly esteemed for delivering exceptional legal assistance to its corporate clientele. Presently, they are in search of a skilled Corporate Partner with 10 to 25 years of experience to join their esteemed corporate practice.

As a part of this esteemed firm, you will work alongside other Corporate Partners nationally, collaborating in managing and mentoring a team while serving clients on a range of matters. Your expertise will encompass:
  • Regulated and off-market mergers and acquisitions,
  • Equity capital markets,
  • Back door listings,
  • Corporate advisory,
  • Joint ventures, as well as
  • ASX and Corporations Act compliance.
While experience in all these areas is not essential, compatibility with the team will require working across the majority of these practice areas.

To thrive in this position, you should have accumulated 10-25 years of post-admission experience, with a substantial portion gained in Brisbane within a specialized M&A firm, mid-tier, or prominent national practice, thereby establishing a robust presence in the corporate arena.

Apart from your technical skills, the firm values soft skills that drive client communication and business development. Your ability to generate additional client activities will be crucial. As a Partner (or Special Counsel), you must have the confidence to back yourself, aiming to have supervised fees of $800K to step into the Salaried Partner level role, or $1.6M as the entry point to equity.

In exchange for your expertise, this lateral partnership opportunity provides compensation commensurate with your skills and contributions. Anticipate a remuneration package surpassing market standards, exceeding your expectations. Entry-level Partners receive generous salaries along with bonuses tied to reasonable KPIs, while Equity Partners enjoy earnings triple the industry norms. Renowned as one of Australia's most lucrative practices, this firm's prosperity continues to experience exponential growth every few years.
