Vacancy for Junior Barrister with Three QC’s

Junior Barrister (2 years PQE)

Andrew Brown QC,  Kate Davenport QC and  Simon Foote QC are seeking to engage a junior lawyer to work for them at Bankside Chambers in Auckland with an immediate start. The position has become available following the departure of our existing junior who has been with us since 2018, shortly after her graduation.

The work is diverse and ranges from equity and trusts, intellectual property, commercial litigation, relationship property, to some criminal matters and arbitration.  The successful candidate will appear regularly in Court and will have hands-on involvement in litigation practice.  They will also have support from a friendly team including existing junior barristers to assist their transition into chambers life.

We are seeking someone with an excellent academic record, an analytical ability, an interest in litigation, with an outgoing personality who is prepared to work hard and become an integral part of the team. Some experience in a law firm would be preferable (approximately 2 years PQE), although recent graduates will also be considered.

Please sent your CV, a covering letter and details of how we might get hold of you to [email protected].  Given the immediate start, applications filed promptly will be given priority.

Closing date: 1 March 2020
