Resource Management and Civil Litigation Lawyer

Taranaki. Aside from being Aotearoa's sunniest region, the heart of Aotearoa's energy sector and home of the stunningly beautiful Taranaki Maunga and world class surf breaks, it’s also an amazing place to work and live.

If you are keen to work at the forefront of the transformation of our country’s food and energy sectors with game-changing projects such as sustainable hydrogen fuel production, or on New Zealand’s first property-based digitally-driven e-Plan, at a firm that is genuinely committed to helping our people shine, then we’d love to hear from you.

Our busy resource management team is in need of another resource management lawyer (preferably with 2+ years’ PQE). This is a fantastic opportunity for you to progress your legal career in a flexible and forward-thinking work environment. You will be supported by two partners and an associate and the work will involve a wide range of resource management and environmental law matters. There will also be opportunities to upskill in civil litigation matters.

We are looking for a confident, proactive candidate with strong research and advocacy skills and a passion for environmental law. Someone who enjoys working as part of a team and who demonstrates integrity and drive. Strong client relationships are one of the foundations of the success of Govett Quilliam, so a willingness and aptitude for building solid relationships with our current and future clients is essential.

We believe that delivering a superior service starts with an excellent team culture and we prioritise making GQ the best place to practise law.

If you would like to join the GQ experience, please submit your cover letter and CV in confidence to our HR Coordinator or fill in the contact box below.
