Burgess Paluch is a leading recruiter of corporate counsel and lawyers for in-house legal teams. Whether you are looking for an in-house counsel lawyer role in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth or Adelaide, we will be keen to speak to you about your goals and interests. Our team of former lawyers are well placed to assist and include those who have worked in-house themselves.The use of in-house legal counsel in Australia and throughout the English-speaking world has increased in recent years, and shows no sign of retreat. Some businesses that previously employed a team of one or two lawyers now have teams of many, making in-house legal counsel a significant aspect of legal recruitment for us.
Lawyers are drawn to work in corporate counsel roles for the closer working relationships, chance to participate in commercial decision making, and to be freed from the chains of their time-sheets! We understand the personality types who succeed as in-house counsel and we advise our lawyers about the differences between in-house counsel roles and private practice.
In house legal counsel job recruitment in Melbourne & Sydney is our specialty
Our team of recruitment consultants have placed lawyers with leading global corporates, from General Counsel to lawyer level roles, including filling vacancies in areas that can fall within the scope of the in-house counsel function, such as company secretary, compliance and compliance manager as well as contracts managers. We have recruited for general counsel roles for businesses that turnover in excess of $AUS1Billion as well as for large private companies seeking to appoint their first ever in-house lawyer.
This is why Burgess Paluch Legal Recruitment is so successful in placing in-house legal counsel in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, the Middle East and London. We not only take the time to assess our candidates’ suitability for this field, we also educate our candidates about what to expect when they enter it. More than that, we work with employers to ensure that they know what to expect from candidates, and to help them build effective in-house legal teams. We are chosen by corporate clients to advise on internal structures and appropriate fit.
Like all Burgess Paluch Legal Recruitment services, this approach pays dividends – our short-lists are shorter, our matches are better! We have experience in recruiting roles across a broad range of practice areas, including corporate, intellectual property, litigation, property, construction, finance, sports and media, employment and IT. As well as having access to a range of roles in Australia, our network of offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, London and New Zealand provide a steady flow of overseas opportunities for in-house counsel looking to move off-shore.
Rather than publishing a broad ranging salary survey we also offer confidential one-off salary advice to lawyers and in-house counsel who are keen to see how they are paid compared to market. Feel free to call us to discuss your current package.
Our aim is to provide sensible, pro-active advice to in-house lawyers. Whether you are a current general counsel or in-house lawyer or a lawyer who is keen to move into a corporate counsel role, register with us so we can update you with appropriate lawyer vacancies when they arise.

Can't thank Thomas Hobbs enough for the time and effort he's gone to in helping me get my dream job.
