MinterEllison is an international law firm, headquartered in Australia and regarded as one of Asia-Pacific's premier law firms. Our teams collaborate across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and the UK to deliver exceptional service.

We have a clear goal – to be our clients' best partner. We put the client at the centre of everything we do and partner with them to deliver truly innovative solutions.

We also think beyond the law, offering clients advisers who are multi-disciplinary and industry-facing to help them achieve strategic goals, grasp business opportunities and create value for their stakeholders.


The Melbourne Real Estate team is a large, collegiate team with a commitment to achieving excellence in all that we do. When working on matters, we aim to see the world through our clients' eyes, to intimately understand the nuances of the deal, the many issues and complexities it presents and how best to solve for these.

Our clients are sophisticated and savvy, ranging from developers, investors, owners, landlords, property fund managers through to governments and statutory bodies both local and international. We work collaboratively and seamlessly with our colleagues across MinterEllison's many practice groups and offices, especially Tax, Finance, M&A and commercial litigation. We love what we do and take pride in the quality of the service and support we deliver.


A great opportunity has arisen for an experienced property lawyer to join a large team dealing with the full spectrum of real estate law.  The work will span capital transactions (including acquisitions, disposals, due diligence and conveyancing), leasing (for many of Australia's leading landlords and tenants), property development and asset management strategies. 

Our client base has grown significantly in recent times and we need a proactive person with strong experience to meet demands.

We would like to hear from Associates (4-5 yrs PQE) who are experienced and interested in the following range of work, to assist with our growing practice: 

  • mid to complex real estate transactions;
  • development and infrastructure projects;
  • urban renewal projects;
  • government projects; 
  • leasing of commercial and industrial property; and
  • general commercial property advice work.


You will be a 4-5 yr PQE level property lawyer with experience in a reputable property team and who is ready to take the next step in your career.  

You will also have: 

  • a commercial approach to all matters;
  • excellent business acumen and a desire to strengthen and build client relationships;
  • superior drafting ability and a strong attention to detail;
  • the ability to work in a highly collaborative fast-paced environment;
  • excellent communication skills, both written and verbal; and
  • resilience and a commitment to excellence that matches our own.


Our diverse and talented teams enjoy a culture of collaboration, innovation and inspiring others.  We are committed to your career development by leveraging the unique strengths you bring to the team and building your capabilities and business acumen to take you to the next level faster.

We care about ensuring you balance your professional goals with your commitments and interests outside of work, and provide a wide range of social, financial and health benefits to support your wellbeing.  Our internal support teams are second to none and will help you perform at your best each day.
