Job description
  • Number of mid tier and boutique opportunities
  • Equity and salaried options on offer
  • Focus on property, commercial and construction disciplines

Our Client
Our instructions come from a group of Ablethorpe's long-term select Private Practice clients at both the mid-tier and boutique level in Melbourne. The client's consist of both profitable full service commercial legal practices and specialist boutiques and can reward senior lawyers considering a lateral move by potentially delivering a better salary/profit share model as well as better strategic positioning in terms of client acquisition and development through cross referrals of existing clients and established market brand. Many of these firms have won multiple employer of choice awards, are high profile and invest significantly in helping acquired practices prosper, grow and reach their full potential.
The Role
The roles on offer will suit lawyers at the Senior Associate, Special Counsel or Partner level across a number of different practice levels.
We have a particular focus at present on new briefs for Partners with the following skillsets:
  • Corporate Commercial
  • Insolvency
  • Construction
  • Property
  • Litigation
Typically to take advantage of these opportunities you will need some sort of portable practice, however there are opportunities available for ambitious SA's looking to just simply leverage their contacts outside of a top or mid tier environment with the support of a more flexible rate card and a focus on mid-cap and private clients. Our clients will consider both salaried and equity/fixed partners, depending on client base and amount of portables. Special Counsel Appointments and fast-tracked Senior Associate appointments are also on offer.
What's on Offer
Ablethorpe Recruitment's consultants are legally qualified and have extensive local knowledge, contacts and experience gained over close to 15 years assisting senior level candidates move laterally. We are able to spend significant time with you, identifying and mapping out targets, matching practice synergies and helping you put together appropriate business plans and financials to assist in making the right long-term move and marketing your practice in the best possible way.
