Job Description

Rare In-house opportunity to work on significant projects for a recognised leader in the international resources sector.
  • Brisbane CBD Office
  • Global Resources Entity
  • Full-time Position
  • Package Negotiable to $150K 

Our client is an ASX listed entity with decades in the resources sector globally. Their activities are across a range of interests including Gold, Oil & Gas, Copper, Lithium, Zinc, and Iron.

With such a diverse portfolio and a significant pipeline of projects, their requirement is for an additional lawyer to join the team to provide technical legal support to the General Counsel. Due to the dynamics of the organisation, your core responsibilities will vary from day to day, providing that intellectual stimulation and sense of achievement you fervently strive for in your career. Depending on the stage of any particular resources project, your exposure will be to:
  • Mining & Resources Project Developments;
  • Sale and Purchase of Tenements and Projects;
  • Joint Venture, Farmin/Farmout Agreements;
  • Drafting, negotiating, and advising on commercial documentation;
  • Corporate M&A;
  • Corporate Financing, Capital Raisings and IPOs,
  • Environmental Issues and Approvals;
  • Workplace Health & Safety Issues; 
  • Intellectual Property; as well as 
  • General Corporate Advisory and Corporate Governance;
In this instance they seek applications from talented lawyers, ideally at the 3 to 6 years post admission level.

You will currently be in-house or within a notable national law firm, and have experience in Energy & Resources or Corporate Law. Candidates with Private Equity or Equity Capital Markets experience will be considered favourably. In addition, you will have a high level of commercial acumen and a strong attention to detail. 

Interview now for either an immediate start or a late January 2019 start, allowing you to enjoy your Christmas holiday plans.

Remuneration is attractive and competitive with top-tier law firms with the package negotiable in line with the skillset and experience of the individual.

With 30 years as specialist consultants to the legal profession, Law Staff has an impressive history of facilitating discreet moves for  lawyers at all levels and has an uncompromising commitment to confidentiality. 

Most importantly, we treat this as a two-way information sharing session to allow you to make an informed decision whether to move forward with an expression of interest to this employer. We will only ever confer with our client after you have done your research and at a time when you have expressed in writing that you are ready to take that cautious next step. Absolutely everything stays in the vault until that time. 


At LawStaff we offer a lounge room setting for a relaxed discussion over coffee/tea, allowing you to comfortably provide us with an understanding of your skillset and interests. In an effort to secure your opportunity for an uncompromisingly confidential discussion on this role, please email your details through to
We look forward to engaging with shortlisted candidates.
