We're Norton Rose Fulbright - a global law firm with over 50 offices and 7,000 employees worldwide.

The Newcastle Hub is home to our Legal Services Team, which is presently staffed principally by paralegals. Our paralegals work with teams in an integrated manner across the entire global NRF network, allowing the Legal Services Team to deliver the scalable, cost-effective resource and quality assurance required to support our global clients effectively. However, we are now ready to build on the huge success of the Legal Services Team to date by expanding the team to include Associates.

Associates in the Legal Services Team will initially work in an agile manner for one of the three practice groups (Banking, Corporate and Disputes), before specialising further and becoming directly aligned to a specific team within a practice group.

Our lawyers represent all parties in capital markets transactions, including issuers, underwriters, placement agents and selling shareholders. Similarly, in the M&A space, we regularly represent buyers, sellers, financial advisers, funds and shareholders. Over the past three years Norton Rose Fulbright advised on over 500 M&A deals globally with a total value of over US$235 billion, and with 1400 corporate lawyers globally we are strategically positioned in the world's prominent business and financial markets.

We are looking for corporate associates to join an established practice group at an exciting time. We would expect you to have plenty of opportunities to work on a diverse range of cross-border instructions and with a number of different partners across the various teams in the Corporate practice group.
