Australia’s resources boom has had a dramatic impact on the legal market’s in Perth and Brisbane. With global law firms opening offices in Perth on the back of skyrocketing levels of investment in mining and energy projects, the market for lawyers is booming. The story is much the same in Brisbane, with the growth mostly prompted by an increase in large-scale infrastructure projects and extraction of resources such as coal seam gas.
EA International has long worked with the leading firms in these jurisdictions and has seen a marked increase in the number of opportunities available in energy and resources, construction, infrastructure and corporate. These highly competitive, fast-growing legal markets are offering increasingly lucrative deals to lawyers with such experience.
If you are a lawyer with experience in one of these areas from a leading national or top tier firm looking to take you career to the heart of the resources boom, we would like to hear from you.
