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 delivery 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.

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.

Our Team

Our Sydney Corporate M&A team has been one of the most active Australian team over the past year. The deal flow has been prolific and has included iconic transactions, hostile takeover bids, large scale cross border M&A and distressed debt transactions.

Your role

Our Sydney M&A team currently has an opening for a talented Senior Associate to work primarily on high value private M&A transactions, with a particular focus in the Real Estate and Financial Services sectors.

As a lawyer at MinterEllison you'll be working with a client base second to none including high profile ASX100 clients, major corporates including mining and energy companies as well as overseas pension fund clients. MinterEllison stands apart from other law firms with its ability to deliver end to end client solutions with multi-practice teams across the Asia Pacific.

The team has a very high emphasis on team work where lawyers work collaboratively to achieve successful outcomes for clients.
