  • Australia

    Nicholas Scott has been assisting Australian Qualified Lawyers looking to return to Australia or to relocate UK Qualified Lawyers to Australia for over 10 years.The legal market for overseas lawyers is concentrated in a relatively small number of commercial centres: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

    Occasionally opportunities will arise in other cities, but these are not areas of significant activity for the overseas market. Within this market the ‘Magic Circle’ equivalents number five or six in total, and it will be these, and possibly also the next tier of law firms, that the majority of lawyers considering relocating will be interested in approaching.

  • New Zealand

    Nicholas Scott assists New Zealand Qualified Lawyers looking to return to New Zealand or UK Qualified Lawyers wanting relocate to New Zealand. Auckland is the largest legal centre in New Zealand and is home to the major domestic law firms, as well as some international firms. As the economy continues to perform strongly there is an increasing demand for legal services. This continuous growth has however resulted in a shortage of lawyers across New Zealand, meaning that skilled migrants are welcomed. Candidates most sought after are those with three to six years PQE, particularly those practicing corporate or commercial law, including construction, banking and finance, M&As and general transactional work. There is also particular demand for Commercial Property Solicitors in Auckland as recent infrastructure developments are driving many new deals in the city.
