Ready to take your career overseas

Make 2018 the year you make the change. The appetite for Australian and New Zealand qualified lawyers in the US, UK, Middle East and Asia continues to grow. Take a proactive approach and contact us for a confidential discussion about your options.

At Empire Group, we work with a range of law firms in New York, London, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore. We can advise you of the different processes available in each country and tailor a strategic plan to your specific career goals.

The ideal candidate who will enjoy success in these regions will:

  • Have 3-8 years PAE
  • Experience in either corporate M&A/ECM/IPO/Capital markets or B+F (acquisition & leverage, project finance, asset finance, DCM, securitisation, corporate finance and real estate finance)
  • Be an Associate or Senior Associate in an international or top tier law firm in either Australia or New Zealand
  • Have excellent academics (First or Second Class Honours) from a highly regarded tertiary institution
  • Possess excellent technical, drafting and negotiation skills
  • Have strong commercial acumen and the ability to build strong relationships with clients
  • Have the ability to speak another language (Mandarin is desirable for candidates interested in Hong Kong)
  • Commit to at least 2 years in a foreign jurisdiction

Lawyers who have advanced degrees and/or admission to either the NY, HK or Singapore Bar will be in an advantageous position.

If you meet all the above requirements, yet have expertise in a different practice area (e.g front end construction, financial services regulatory) we would be happy to have a discussion with you. However, as a caution, there are typically less international opportunities for lawyers with such specialisation.
