An exciting opportunity has arisen for a self-motivated paralegal to join our busy and expanding Corporate team.

  • Demonstrate the ability to work under pressure, often to tight deadlines and be able to prioritise tasks effectively;
  • Build strong working relationships with colleagues, clients and other departments in the firm;
  • Conduct legal research; and
  • Provide administrative support where required.
