In-house Counsel Lawyers

Burgess Paluch Legal Recruitment is a specialist at sourcing in-house lawyers for corporate and government employers. We recruit for in-house lawyers in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, and our recruiters include those who have worked in-house themselves. We have a strong track record in assisting both established in-house teams and greenfields legal counsel roles, including high-profile and significant hires, from General Counsel to junior levels and including contract lawyers. We have recruited for global brands, local listed entities and ASX top 50 companies and  private companies and start-ups. We have assisted corporate clients setting up legal teams both within and outside of Australia. Our government clients include federal and state entities and statutory bodies and has included sourcing Supreme Court Registrars.

While finding quality in-house lawyers is always our focus, at Burgess Paluch Legal Recruitment we also seek to match the cultural values and team fit of our corporate clients to our lawyers, placing an emphasis on commerciality and business acumen as well as legal skills and ability. Having been former lawyers ourselves, we recognize that businesses require lawyers who get involved in their business, approach issues with a commercial outcome in mind, and can work well within a team.

As well as strict legal roles, we also cover roles that can come under the scope of the in-house counsel team, such as contract managers, compliance roles, company secretary positions and paralegals. We can provide contract paralegals and lawyers on an hourly or weekly basis for periods of heavy workloads or for specific projects or disputes.

While we have a strong local network in Australia, and one of the most impressive databases and social networks in the area, our network of affiliate offices in London, Hong Kong, Singapore and New Zealand are able to source lawyers from overseas to fill specific roles.
