Job Description

About Us

Morgan Conley is a well-established boutique law firm located in the Brisbane CBD with a thriving commercial, litigation and insolvency practice.  We operate a collaborative practice, and you will have the opportunity to work with and learn from each of our four experienced directors.

We are conveniently located in 239 George Street, with easy access to Queen Street Mall and public transport.  The building includes recently renovated end-of-trip facilities including showers, lockers and secure bike racks.

About the role

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for a law graduate, graduate solicitor or recently-admitted solicitor. You will work directly with dispute resolution partners with a particular focus on commercial transactions, commercial litigation and insolvency.

Your duties will include:

·        Providing advice to clients;

·        Document drafting and review, including court documents;

·        Court appearances and mentions;

·        Research of case law and legislation;

·        Assistance with commercial litigation matters predominantly in the Supreme Court of Queensland and Federal Court of Australia.

This is an outstanding opportunity for someone who is looking to commence their career in litigation and insolvency, and get more hands-on experience on a broad range of matters than you would receive at a larger firm.

Your salary will be commensurate with your experience.

About you

The successful candidate will need to be self-motivated, confident, reliable and willing to work as part of a close-knit team.

Whilst no experience as an admitted solicitor is necessarily required, previous experience working in a law firm will be viewed favourably.

Ideal background and skills include:

•         An interest in commercial litigation and insolvency;

•         A good understanding of technology and strong typing ability;

•         An interest in appearing in court, and willingness to do so;

•         Strong communication skills, both written and verbal;

•         Strategic thinking;

•         A quick learner with the ability to grasp new concepts;

•         A team player;

•         Strong time management and organisational skills.

If you are looking for a role where you can work on challenging and fulfilling matters and build relationships with the client you're here to help, then this is the role for you.

How to apply

We look forward to receiving your CV and covering letter by email to addressing how the candidate requirements are met.
