We are a full-service law firm that has provided comprehensive legal services to the Brisbane and Redland regions for more than 30 years. If ever we can’t help a client with a specific enquiry, we will connect them with the right people.  We have worked diligently to create a culture of transparency and high-quality outcomes at McCarthy Durie Lawyers. Accessibility and professionalism are at the crux of our services, and we welcome you to expand the team with your litigation expertise if your values align with ours. 

Our values fortify our business model: integrity and authentic engagement with the community. We champion solutions-oriented & respectful interactions; innovation & accountability. Ultimately, our values help us deliver value to our clients and foster a healthy work/life balance amongst our team.

Due to well-earned retirement, we have a rare opportunity for a Senior Associate - Litigation! This role would suit an experienced Corporate or Commercial Lawyer seeking full-time or flexible arrangements.

As Senior Associate - Litigation, you will report to the Director (Head of Litigation), applying your extensive consulting experience to strategise case-by-case outcomes tactfully, efficiently, and effectively. You will need to maintain active and transparent communication with all staff; from industry veterans to interns. Similarly, you will need to be confident liaising ethically with clients of all backgrounds, from varying industries. 

You will ideally have demonstrable experience with at least two of the following fields:

  • Building and construction law;
  • Planning and environment;
  • General litigation;
  • Debt recovery;
  • Insolvency;
  • Estate litigation and disputes, or;
  • Contractual and trade practice disputes

McCarthy Durie Lawyers’ scope typically serves residents through to mid-size building, construction, planning, and environment projects - as such, these specialties will be highly favoured.
