Sydney is a popular destination for overseas and interstate lawyers with all major international and most independent law firms having offices there.  Private practice lawyers have access to first-class work across a broad range of areas. The presence of multinational organisations ensures that high-quality work is briefed to firms, and offers excellent opportunities for lawyers looking to move in private practice and in-house.

Sydney firms are interested in overseas and interstate lawyers who bring quality experience from major firms and offer strong academic backgrounds. Returning lawyers offering both local and overseas experience are also in demand.

Salaries in Sydney reflect work quality, a higher cost of living and accommodation. Please see Survey for further information about current market salaries.
