JOB DETAILS:

IS IT TIME FOR A CHANGE?

If the words 'organised', 'experienced' and 'professional' describe you, make sure you read on.

A highly reputable Brisbane law firm seeks an experienced Litigation Secretary to join their team. This role would see you working in Commercial Litigation & Disputes supporting a team of Lawyers, including at Director level, on a broad range of dispute matters, and could be the step up in your career you've been seeking!

The successful candidate will be adaptable in their approach to work and focus their efforts into the collective success of the Commercial Litigation Team, by supporting authors with day to day tasks. If a challenge is what you seek, this role will certainly provide you with a new challenge each day and make you excited about going to work.

This is not a Paralegal role, so you will not be expected to run Litigation files, however, you will be expected to assist your authors in doing so.  You will have prior experience in assisting authors who practice in Commercial Litigation, and you will need to know the "next step" in the process. You will ideally know your way around the litigation of a property dispute, including contractual disputes, together with general commercial litigation matters and planning and environment matters.

You will therefore be responsible for:

  • Providing secretarial assistance to Senior authors;
  • Maintaining an organised document management system;
  • Typing of dictation and preparation of documents and correspondence;
  • File management - file opening, closing and archiving;
  • Diary management;
  • Call screening;
  • Compiling briefs (electronic and/or paper);
  • Preparing documents from precedents;
  • Performing any necessary searches i.e. company searches;
  • Monthly billing and invoicing;
  • Liaising with clients and other parties;
  • Any other ad hoc duties as required.

You will need:

  • At least three (3) years experience in a similar role;
  • To be confident, organised, resilient and energetic;
  • Experience in the areas of Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution;
  • Confidence to work under pressure in a fast-paced environment;
  • Flexibility, adaptability and reliability at all times;
  • The ability to perform well autonomously and as part of a team; and
  • A thorough, attentive and methodical approach to work.

In return for your hard work, you can expect the opportunity to work with a high performing and skilled team with a strong social and inclusive culture. The firm offers a unique range of benefits in a great office fit out that includes access to great coffee!
