Who is Harmos Horton Lusk?

Harmos Horton Lusk is New Zealand's pre-eminent corporate legal advisory firm.  We have a well-earned reputation for innovative, solution-centred advice and an enviable reputation for expertise at the high end of the market.

We're defined by our absolute commitment to our clients' success.  We "find ways to do things others say you can't" (Asia Pacific Legal 500 2016).

We've forged that reputation because we are not simply 'black letter' lawyers.  Keen commercial insight and a willingness to innovate are hallmarks of legal practice at HHL.

Why practise with us?

You will learn from some of New Zealand's most respected corporate lawyers, honing your incisive thinking and creative problem-solving skills on high profile work, in a dynamic, supportive, team-orientated environment.

Your work may include specialist corporate advice, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital, capital markets and securities, foreign investment, and more.

Our uniquely flat structure means you'll benefit from open knowledge sharing with colleagues who are invested in your success.  Our culture of support and our collegial environment - which extends to our families - is a big reason why we are successful at what we do.

We are always looking for sharp thinkers.

Lawyers of all levels of experience and graduates are welcome to apply.  Summer clerk positions are also available each year and we invite law students to apply.  We promise you challenging and stimulating work - professionally, you'll learn and grow.

Senior and intermediate lawyers, you can expect to be deeply involved in driving transactions and supervising our junior lawyers where applicable.  More than likely, you'll already have experience at a top New Zealand or international law firm.

Graduates and summer clerks, you'll have an academic record you're proud of, a passion for corporate practice, and be keen to bring your energy and incisive thinking to the table.  You'll be rewarded by learning from the best.

Because we recognise that our people are one of our most valuable assets, our rewards and remuneration are attractive.  They include above market remuneration packages and six weeks' annual leave for our lawyers, reflecting our international reputation for excellence.

We are an equal opportunities employer and we welcome a diverse range of applicants.

Please apply in writing to our Practice Manager, Naina Faith, at careers@hhl.co.nz.

Summer clerk and graduate applicants must include an academic transcript with their application.

We strive to be more than just lawyers.
