Job Description

Based in the eastern suburbs of Brisbane, our client is a well established and highly regarded firm. This position presents an opportunity for advancement for an experienced Property and Commercial Lawyer looking to expand their profile and assume management of an existing practice.

In addition to managing a team of Paralegals who handle Cottage Conveyancing matters, you can expect to take ownership of a range of Property and Commercial related matters including:
  • Business Sales and Acquisitions;
  • Leasing (Landlord and Tenant);
  • Commercial Conveyancing;
  • Shareholder agreements;
  • Company agreements; and
  • Business Succession & Trusts.
You will also be responsible for the Wills and Estate Planning matters including, Disputes and Administration.

We are inviting candidates with 5 or more years post-admission experience (with 10 to 15 years being ideal) to be at a level of competency to work autonomously and supervise others. 

In addition to your strong technical and drafting skills, your ability to manage client relationships will be paramount to this position. Whilst our client is not looking for a "business developer" they do require someone who is comfortable fostering relationships, and the drive and ambition to continue to develop the firm's already strong client base.

With over 30 years as specialist consultants to the legal profession, Law Staff has an impressive history of facilitating discreet moves for legal practitioners 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 confidential discussion over coffee/tea, allowing you to comfortably provide us with an understanding of your considerations in that next move. 

Applications should be directed to Trudy Reading ( and Ena Pita ( 

We look forward to engaging with shortlisted candidates.
