We’re looking for you!

Join our Commercial Team as an Associate Lawyer, playing a crucial role in delivering high-quality legal services. Lead client matters, ensuring tasks are completed on schedule, objectives are met, and client and legal expectations are fulfilled.

You’re a confident, reliable and principled lawyer looking for a new opportunity in the legal industry. You have at least 3 years’ experience post-admission in commercial Law and you bring a positive, logical, and productive approach to your work.

Your expertise in commercial law, gained in a firm environment, includes a focus or interest in commercial property. Passionate about your profession, you prioritise relationships and thrive in dynamic, collaborative environments.

You enjoy problem-solving and being an integral part of a close-knit team.

Now, you’re seeking more meaningful client interactions and greater clarity in your professional growth.


Reporting to our Managing Director, you’ll drive team productivity, building trusted relationships with clients. Supported by junior lawyers and paralegals, your responsibilities include drafting communications, clarifying client instructions, shaping team culture, and reviewing/drafting various legal documents including:

•               commercial leases;

•               service agreements;

•               licences;

•               intellectual property registrations and agreements;

•               terms and conditions; and

•               employment agreements and policies.

Led by Director Nich Burch, an esteemed commercial lawyer, we believe in creating a better legal experience. Recognised as a finalist in the Women’s Law Awards Diversity Law Firm of the Year and one of BRW’s fastest-growing firms in 2023, we work across diverse sectors, always aiming to be positive and straightforward in all that we do. Founded 8 years ago, our firm has grown into a community of over 1100 clients. In summary, we genuinely care – about each other, our community, and the law.


We genuinely believe our team and clients are what sets the experience of working at Burch&Co apart.

We love what we do and who we work with, and we believe you will too.

Additional benefits include a tailored KPI and professional growth program, a 9-day working fortnight without a salary reduction, bottomless coffee (and beer/cider on tap), genuine flexible working arrangements, balanced team face time, fully maintained gym, weekly meditation sessions, Pilates classes, performance psychology support and a variety of other perks designed to enhance your work-life.
