About Buddle Findlay

Buddle Findlay is one of New Zealand’s leading commercial and public law firms with offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.  Our origins date back over 123 years, to the earliest days of legal practice in New Zealand.

Buddle Findlay is progressive, well respected and at the forefront of the legal profession.  We balance an open and approachable culture with a determination to continually provide the highest quality of service to our clients.  Our experienced partnership is made up of genuine experts in their fields who bring an energy and enthusiasm to New Zealand’s legal market.  Our practical approach has made us a valued strategic adviser to clients.

The opportunity

Each year Buddle Findlay looks for enthusiastic and talented summer clerks to join our team.  We can provide you with an incredible launch pad for your legal career.  The work is challenging, rewarding and there are plenty of opportunities for you to build expertise and skills, and experience a wide range of practice areas. 

As a summer clerk at Buddle Findlay, you will have the chance to immerse yourself in two different practice areas of the firm and become involved in client facing work.  You will work on interesting and challenging legal projects, be mentored by experienced senior lawyers and partners, and supported by your own dedicated buddy who will guide you through your journey.  You will not only get direct experience through the work you’re given, but you’ll also have the opportunity to see what it’s like to be a senior person in the firm and be involved up close in the work we do. 

What we’re looking for

As a summer clerk, you'll experience the real day-to-day life of being a lawyer.  The opportunities at Buddle Findlay are immense, and starting your career with us will open doors in both New Zealand and around the world.

There is no ‘one fit’ Buddle Findlay person, and we’re looking for candidates who are as diverse as we and our clients are.  Our most successful team members are those who are self-motivated, great communicators, and enjoy working closely with clients and learning more about their business.  Above all, we’re looking for people who are curious, hard-working, committed to a career in the law, and ready to venture further.

If this sounds like you, apply online from 14 March to 31 March 2019.
