I speak to lawyers all the time that are tired of working at a top-tier firm.
Most of them don't know there are other options out there.
Here is a good example - I'm working with a specialist firm in the financial services regulation space that is arguably doing better work than the top-tiers.
Why is this appealing?
- As a lawyer, you will be at the coal face of the financial services industry and will provide hands-on advice to companies (like fin-techs and neo-banks) creating innovative products. Of course, there's advice on how to deal with ASIC, but it's much bigger and better than that.
- You will get paid the same as if you were at a top-tier.
- You will work in a fantastic environment with normal hours.
- You will work with people vastly experienced in their field (I've met them and they're all interesting, lovely people).
- They are growing and this role exists because of that growth.
- Given how specialised they are and the work you will do, it will look amazing (possibly even better) on your CV.
For me it's a no brainer.
They will not take anyone, so you must have these things to be eligible to apply:
- 5-9 years' experience in the financial services regulation industry.
- Private practice experience within Australia.
- Experience in any of the following - credit, wealth, AML, super or insurance.
- Good academics from a reputable university.
I've worked with this firm for a while now, and have helped a number of people move there. Feedback has been excellent.
