Join the team.

Why Greenwood Roche?

Our philosophy is to recruit the very best people and give them a supportive environment where they can be themselves, pursue their goals and maximise their talents. An environment where they enjoy their work and the company of like-minded colleagues. We look for team players with a commercial edge, people who are eager to test themselves and grow as they work with some of New Zealand’s best specialist lawyers.

We have the privilege of regularly working on some of New Zealand’s most significant commercial property, infrastructure and energy projects, being delivered by government and blue chip corporate clients.

Our specialists are recognised nationally for their depth of knowledge and experience in their particular fields – and for their ability to be proactive and efficient in the support and delivery of outcomes for private and public sector clients.

Many members of our team have worked for large national and international law firms, including in the UK and Australia. That experience and those connections are invaluable in helping facilitate our clients’ projects and in securing positions overseas for our young lawyers. We encourage the Kiwi OE. Without fail our folk return to us and enhance our expertise with their experience.

We work hard, but the firm is also structured to ensure that our team and their families are supported and that the work aspect of their lives enhances rather than detracts from all the other parts. We care that our colleagues are not overworked for sustained periods, and that they have the flexibility they need to achieve real work/life balance. But, as we compete with the traditional large law firms, we offer our staff superior remuneration.

We aren’t a team of teams. We are one team.And we take that approach seriously, both in terms of what we offer our clients, and what we offer to our staff. In real terms, this means we don’t tolerate internal competition or politics. We select the best-suited people for the job on a case-by-case basis. We also ensure our clients and staff have easy access to the diverse range of experience and skill sets the firm has to offer. This approach allows our people to discover, experience and focus in on what interests them. With three locations and clients undertaking significant projects across New Zealand, our staff also have the opportunity to work around the country.

This isn’t just business strategy. It’s a cultural thing. We are about people who are good at what they do and who work hard. But equally, we are about people who really value what they do and the people they work alongside.

So if you are looking for an opportunity to undertake exciting and challenging work in one of our specialist areas, and this environment sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. Please send an email at any time to mail@greenwoodroche.com. All enquiries will be treated on a confidential basis.
