Sydney’s unique physical and corporate climate has a style of its own, and demands a unique approach to recruiting and retaining lawyers. As befits its status as a major international hub of finance, Sydney has a rich mix of top-tier legal firms and more specialised medium and boutique-sized firms which together offer a diverse range of career paths for ambitious and capable lawyers and lawyers. The city is experiencing steady growth, which expresses itself in a continuing demand for high quality legal personnel, both as in-house counsel and in private practice. Burgess Paluch has responded to this demand with a boutique recruitment service that combines our depth of experience in the market with a finger that is constantly on the pulse of the ever-changing Sydney legal scene. Add to that our special skills in relocation, and it’s easy to see why we have earned such an enviable reputation among employers and lawyers alike. Our clients and vacancy lists reflect this, with opportunities in international firms as well as in the most specialised boutique practices.

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