Job Description



Competition. It's how it all began. It is what has brought you here today.

It's the moment your name was read out at the top of the class, the memory you hold of being admitted to law, the spark that lights when you find the missing piece to your winning argument, the curl of your smile when you were first promoted to Senior Associate.

At DLA Piper, innovation and challenging the status quo forms the vital spark to how we think and what we do. It's this spark that fuels our dedication to creating exceptional experiences, outcomes and growth of our clients and our people. It's something we're proud of and something, we know, drives the continued success of our Litigation and Regulatory Competition practice.

Our Team form a thriving practice group, engaged as trusted advisors to a wide range of clients on economic regulations and competition law matters. Each day, we play a vital role in maintaining market competition through our engagement of ACCC investigations, enforcement matters, merger clearances, exclusive dealings and anti-competitive agreements.

With all that we do, we commit to delivering exceptional outcomes… and that brings us to you.

You're an experience lawyer, a Senior Associate who is looking to join a firm where you can experience the feeling of winning a land mark case. These are the cases you'll never forget, the ones you're reading about   that make you click further, diving into the detail just wishing you were there.

You challenge conventions and find bold solutions to every challenge. You value the voice of others and seek to understand different views to achieve the exceptional results. You don't shy away from conflict, in fact you're drawn to it and know that innovation begins with a shift in perspective.

At DLA Piper, we understand that you're building a future. Which is why we encourage you to reach your full potential. To explore the opportunities and choices that shape your individual career journey. Here, personal growth goes hand in hand with professional development in a supportive culture.

Bring your ambition, initiative and entrepreneurial mindset to a global business that’s redefining the expectations of a law firm.

The time is now.


At DLA Piper, we believe great businesses can make a better world. Our entrepreneurial and supportive culture promotes bold, ambitious thinking and a warm, empathetic approach. And at the heart of everything we do are trusting, collaborative relationships with clients and each other. Sharing the belief that together, we can make business better.


In everything we do connected with our People, our Clients and our Communities, we live by these values:
  • Be Supportive  - we care about others, value diversity and act thoughtfully
  • Be Collaborative  - we give, we share and we join in
  • Be Bold  - we stand tall and challenge ourselves to think big
  • Be Exceptional  - we exceed standards and expectation       
At DLA Piper we are working hard to ensure that our talent pool is diverse. For us, diversity isn't just about visible differences, it's the unique blend of talents, skills, experiences and perspectives that makes each of us an individual.
We know it's crucial to have a culture and environment where those differences are genuinely valued and that's why we strive to be a business where everyone can thrive, develop and succeed based on their talent.  Our aim is to build an inclusive and supportive culture where all our people feel they belong and can achieve their best. We encourage people from all backgrounds to apply to join us, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people identifying as LGBTI, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and people with disability.
