Job Description

  • Rare In-house Opportunity for a Lawyer to Senior Associate
  • Brisbane CBD Office
  • ASX Listed Entity with International reach
  • Full-time Position
  • Package Negotiable

Our client is an established ASX listed entity with global activities. Their Board has a long history and a deep level of expertise in navigating a successful and enormously profitable course in its field of expertise.

With such a diverse portfolio and a significant pipeline of projects, their requirement is for an additional commercial 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 project, your exposure will be to:
  • Joint Venture Agreements;
  • Drafting, negotiating, and advising on commercial documentation;
  • Corporate M&A;
  • Corporate Finance, Capital Raisings and IPOs;
  • Environmental Issues and Approvals;
  • Workplace Health & Safety Issues; 
  • Intellectual Property; as well as 
  • General Corporate Advisory and Corporate Governance;
You will currently be in-house or within a notable law firm (mid-tier, national, international), and have relevant experience in Corporate Law and Commercial Contracts relevant to your level of seniority. Whilst not essential, 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. 

Remuneration is attractive and competitive with top-tier law firms, with the package negotiable in line with the skillset and experience of the individual. In this instance they ideally seek applications from lawyers at the 3 to 7 year post admission level, however they may stretch to 10 PAE subject to your salary expectations. As a general guide, a 3rd year is likely to attract a salary circa $90K to $100K, through to a 7 Year Lawyer at approximately (+/-) $150K.

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 Law Staff 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 or

If this role is not entirely suitable then we would still enjoy the opportunity of hearing from you. We often work on roles that are not advertised, with a range of positions across private practice and in- house.  

We look forward to engaging with shortlisted candidates.
