About us

MinterEllison is renowned as one of Asia Pacific's leading legal practices. What sets us apart is we are driven by a strong sense of purpose: We create lasting impacts for our clients, our people and our communities. MinterEllison is redefining the boundaries of what it means to be a law firm.

Legal 500 Asia Pacific has this year identified MinterEllison as the equal most ranked firm in Australia, with 24 rankings across practice areas. We were also the highest ranked law firm in LinkedIn's 25 Top Companies in Australia for 2019.

Our culture

At MinterEllison, our people are our brand.  Every day, every person in our firm plays a vital role in helping clients to close deals, find solutions, resolve disputes, grasp opportunities and create value.  We are a friendly and supportive firm that takes pride in our work, our individual and collective achievements, our clients' success, and our strong reputation in the marketplace.

Your role

A great opportunity currently exists for a bright, enthusiastic lawyer, with between 18 months' to four years' post-admission experience in insurance or litigation to join us.  While experience in insurance is desirable, we also encourage applications from strong litigators looking to focus on insurance law.

You will be working with partner Kemsley Brennan, who is nationally recognised for his pre-eminence in insurance law.  You will work with a diverse and well-established client base, including insurers, reinsurers and brokers across Australia, Asia, the US and Europe, on a range of front-end compliance, regulatory issues and disputes, and complex claims management involving financial lines and complex casualty insurance.

What you need

We welcome applications from lawyers who:

  • show a keen interest in front end insurance;
  • have experience in general insurance litigation;
  • are familiar with District Court, Supreme Court and Federal Court civil procedure;  
  • have unwavering attention to detail and technical excellence;
  • have a strong client focus and demonstrated ability to form enduring relationships with peers, clients and industry experts;
  • work in a highly collaborative environment;
  • are resilient and committed to excellence that matches our own; and
  • take pride in their work and who they work for.

What we offer

As a lawyer at MinterEllison you'll be working with major multi-national, regional and local companies as well as government organisations and state-owned entities.  These clients trust us with their biggest and most complex matters, spanning jurisdictions.  You'll be part of a team collaborating across practice areas and across offices, as well as working with partners who are recognised as leaders in their fields.

You will enjoy working in an environment where people care about ensuring that you balance your professional goals with your interests outside of work.  We offer competitive top tier employment packages and a wide range of employment benefits.  Our internal support teams are second to none, and our learning and professional development programs are designed to maximise your legal technical expertise, client and solution focus, business acumen and leadership skills to help you take the next step in your career.
