An opportunity exists within a small boutique, but high-quality firm for a Commercial Lawyer with broad Commercial experience (touching on some Real Estate work) due to growth and an abundance of high quality matters the team are currently handling.

Despite being a smaller firm, the team attract high calibre and complex matters, which you will gain exposure to.
