Senior Associate - Employment
Role: Senior Associate
Location: Auckland, New Zealand
Looking for change? It’s already happening.
The whole legal industry is changing. The old establishment is gone, and there’s a new establishment in town. It’s an exciting and dynamic future, which we at DLA Piper are leading.
It’s a new business world, with new client needs. Clients want more than legal advice, they want strategic business advisers that cross borders and geographies. They want global insights with local savvy. And so do we.
DLA Piper is a firm built for this rapidly globalising world, and we’re looking for people to join us on this mission. We’re looking for people who see the world differently, who listen to clients, and solve their problems, not just give legal advice. Being well read is good, but being able to read the room is great. We’re looking for people to help make business better for our clients.
