Job Description

The Firm

Our client is a boutique commercial practice at Varsity Lakes at the Gold Coast. This is a growing firm that embraces a family-friendly and supportive environment. Reputation is a critical part to this firm, growing its practice on clear and regular communication with its clients.

The Role

This is a role for an experienced and confident family law lawyer to join the firm and build and develop an existing practice. You will be the sole senior lawyer in the family practice area supported by a senior paralegal who has been with the firm. You will run your matters autonomously and utilise your network and the client referrals from the firm to build the family law area further. Your hours are dictated by your workload and flexibility is embraced.

This is a terrific opportunity for a local practitioner, with at least 5 years' experience in family law, to take the next step in their career and join this growing firm, as a Special Counsel or Senior Associate depending on experience, and growing their own practice.

About You

You will possess a minimum of 5 years' PAE in family law and the desire and confidence to be the sole family lawyer (with support from other Partners from different practice areas) until the practice grows further. You will have a commercial approach and the energy and desire to continue to develop your practice and help the firm to continue its growth path and achieve its goals for this team.

A small fee base or proof of substantial network for referrals is beneficial.


  • Attractive remuneration package
  • Substantial bonus scheme
  • Flexible hours
  • Client referrals
