The Role

We are looking for a bright and motivated individual to join our team as a commercial paralegal on a full-time basis. You will need to have a keen interest in the areas of corporate, commercial, intellectual property and employment law (our core areas of law). We welcome applications from individuals with experience in other areas of business law so long as the experience is relevant.
