We’re looking for you!

Join our Commercial Team as a Lawyer playing a crucial role in delivering high-quality legal services. You’ll be the key driver of client matters assigned to you, 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 up to 2 years’ experience post-admission in commercial matters.

You believe that dealing with the law can be a positive, logical and productive experience. You’ve developed strong legal expertise through your experience in commercial matters in a firm environment and have a willingness and enthusiasm to build on these foundational skills across a variety of matters and industries. You are forward thinking, inspired, and curious to learn and grow.

You are passionate about what you do, always putting relationships at the core of your work ethic. You thrive in fast-paced, busy working environments, relish problem-solving opportunities and enjoy being part of a close-knit team.

You are looking for more meaningful client interactions and greater clarity in your professional growth.


As one of eight members of the Commercial team within our firm, you’ll play a crucial role in the delivery of high-quality legal services.

You’ll be the key driver in client matters assigned to you, responsible for ensuring that tasks are provided to schedule, objectives are met, and the expectations of our clients are exceeded. You will report to a Senior Associate and Managing Director. You’ll be responsible for helping drive the productivity of our team.

You’ll be a central figure for our clients, building trusted relationships. You will uphold our proactive, positive approach. You will be supported in your role by paralegals and graduate lawyers.

Specifically, your role would include:

  • Drafting client and stakeholder communications for assigned matters
  • Taking and clarifying client instructions
  • Preparing draft agreements, terms, licences, leases and other commercial documents
  • Supporting your Associate, Senior Associate and Director with input to strategic objectives
  • Overseeing the development and inclusion of our graduate lawyers
  • Helping shape and drive the culture of our team


Based in South Melbourne and Surry Hills (Sydney), we’re a group of lawyers who believe in a better legal experience; one that redefines the experience of working with and being a lawyer.

We are a team of smart, fun and bright humans. Our team of 20 is led by Director Nich Burch, a leading commercial lawyer whose deep experience in litigious and commercial matters make him an invaluable resource to both early stage and established businesses.

We work with a diverse group of clients across health, hospitality, manufacturing, sport, entrepreneurship and technology, always seeking to be useful, positive and straightforward in all that we do.

Our firm was founded 8 years ago and, in that time, has grown a community of over 1000 clients.


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. We think that 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.
