McElroys is looking to recruit a talented Solicitor with 2-3+ years PQE in insurance or civil litigation to join our close-knit team.

About us

McElroys are experts in insurance law, maritime litigation and legal representation helping the New Zealand business community navigate risk and resolve complex litigation.

We have been solving problems in insurance and maritime law for over 25 years. In that time we’ve been called upon by both global and national clients to help them navigate risk and resolve a broad range of litigation challenges from leaky buildings to employment and statutory prosecutions.

We are proud of our track record, but actually McElroys’ success lies in the values our founding partners established when the firm first opened its doors for business. Attention to detail, going beyond what is required, keeping astride of new approaches and setting new standards have all contributed to a purposeful culture that sets itself apart by consistently delivering results that count.

The role

You will work closely with our partners in our civil litigation team, with an opportunity to develop client relationships and hone your advocacy skills.

You will be managing civil and insurance disputes, including claims against professionals and directors, marine insurance and product and public liability claims.

Attributes we are looking for

  • Collaborative – the ability to work as part of a team and value the contributions of each other
  • Better – to continually strive to reach the highest standard and go beyond what is required
  • Expertise – to constantly challenge your understanding and deepen your knowledge
  • Straightforward – be clear, accurate and direct in ensuring the right course of action is taken
