We’re looking for a junior lawyer to join our team (1-3 years’ experience, with expressions of interest from more experienced lawyers also welcomed).

About us

Avid.legal is a boutique firm based in Wellington that has been busy since inception 5 years ago. Our key areas of work broadly fall into:

  • technology law;
  • venture capital;
  • M&A;
  • procurement; and
  • general corporate/commercial/contract advice.

Many of our clients are involved in the technology sector and/or follow business models for growth. This position provides a real opportunity to advance your legal career.

We pride ourselves as being a collaborative, forward thinking, and an (almost) paperless firm.

We do not strive to be the biggest law firm – our aim is to be the New Zealand law firm of choice for our clients’ most important corporate and commercial matters.

If successful you will receive great exposure to legal work and client interactions, and will work with all members of the Avid.legal team.

About you

It would be great if you have some experience in the areas of work set out above, but we’re open-minded about your background if you can demonstrate that you are an analytical thinker and good communicator.

We’re looking for someone that is eager to learn, up for a challenge, and enjoys good banter. If you’re not afraid of hard work and have a strong academic transcript with a well-rounded CV, we’d love to hear from you.

What to do

Check out our website to get a feel for the firm, and some of our work (www.avid.legal). If you can see yourself as part of our team, send your CV, academic transcript, and a cover letter to sophie.meaclem@avid.legal and murray.whyte@avid.legal by Friday 30 April 2021.

In your cover letter, we’d like you to tell us:

  • a bit about yourself;
  • why you’re applying; and
  • your usual coffee order.
