About Us

MinterEllison is one of the Asia Pacific's leading law firms. Established in Sydney in 1827, our firm today operates in Australia, Hong Kong, mainland China, Mongolia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom through a network of integrated offices and associated offices.

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.

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.

Our Team

Our Major Projects and Infrastructure Group has played a central role in a number of Australia's largest and most complex infrastructure projects (including PPPs) across sectors including social and economic infrastructure, energy, transport, justice, education, water, resources and telecommunications. We also have an extensive finance practice, being one of the few firms to sit on the panels of each of the major Australian banks, as well as having a wide range of infrastructure borrower clients.

What you need

We are looking for candidates who stand out from the crowd with their combination of technical excellence and commercial acumen.

You will be an experienced Associate or Senior Associate who is motivated, proactive and who has experience in a broad range of work, including projects, procurement, PPPs, construction and operations and maintenance arrangements. An understanding or exposure to banking and finance work would be an advantage but is not essential.

What we offer

In the major projects and infrastructure space, our clients are both private and public entities who look to us to guide them through the complexities of financing, structuring, negotiating and delivering significant and sophisticated infrastructure projects concerning assets as diverse as road, rail, ports, hospitals, prisons, schools, student accommodation facilities, telecommunications systems and defence assets.

As an employer Minter Ellison provides a collegiate working environment, with an emphasis on excellence and building successful teams to support our clients. We also offer some attractive benefits such as gym memberships, study assistance, scholarship programs and health and wellbeing initiatives.
