Darwin and the Northern Territory have developed a commercial life that extends across the Timor Sea and into Asia. Nearly as close to Singapore as it is to Sydney, and closer to Jakarta, Darwin has been Australia’s second fastest-growing city for some years now. Boosted by prospects for oil and gas production in the Timor Sea, Darwin has recorded double-digit growth rates, largely comprising young migrants from Australia’s south, and its population now stands at nearly 150,000. Together with the outdoor lifestyle offered by its tropical climate, this growth pattern makes Darwin a great place for an ambitious lawyer interested in building a rewarding career and raising a family.
Burgess Paluch is the Territory’s leader in legal recruitment, with a team that is perfectly attuned to the unique tempo of its legal scene, and with the law jobs available. Our network includes the upper strata of Darwin’s national legal firms, as well as the Darwin law firms which serve the many niches in its professional life.
