Commercial & Business

At Burke Lawyers we value relationships, creativity, innovation, rewarding and valuable work and efficiency. We have built a supportive, career enhancing and nurturing working environment. We want our employees to help grow the Firm and their careers continuously within it.

We have a hybrid working arrangement which means everyone works from home one or two days per week to allow flexibility between work and other parts of their life. We are based in Armadale in South East Melbourne, which provides access to some of the best cafes, wine bars, restaurants and shops that Melbourne has to offer.

We are a growing business and we need an additional Burke Star Special Counsel in our Commercial & Dispute Resolution Division, to help us deliver excellent outcomes and service to our valued clients. If you have at least 10 years of experience in commercial advice and transactions (and ideally also in disputes although not essential), this could be the role for you. This is a permanent full-time senior role as a Special Counsel and will be the Head of Division to cover maternity leave with opportunity beyond this. You will gain invaluable experience heading up, leading and managing a team, working alongside our skilled Directors and the broader Firm and managing key client relationships, referrers and other stakeholders.

We would love to hear about you and what you are seeking in your career in the law, so please submit your application and we will be in contact. If you have any questions about the role or our Firm, please contact Hayley Betros, People & Culture Manager, at hbetros@burkelawyers.com.au.
