All major national and most international firms have offices in Melbourne, as does a strong band of quality Victorian law firms. A broad range of quality legal work is on offer from domestic and international firms. Corporate head offices for many of Australia’s household name companies also offer excellent opportunities and there are a number of opportunities in smaller legal teams.
The Melbourne market is competitive, therefore strong experience and academics from local and overseas lawyers are sought. Returning lawyers offering both local and overseas experience are also in demand.
Salaries in Melbourne are very competitive. Please see our Survey for further information about current market salaries.
