“Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard to achieve it.”

If you’re in the latter camp we’d love to hear from you. When you choose to progress your career at Lawrence Stephens you will find that, unlike some larger law firms, you are not lost among a cast of thousands. It’s a place where the work you do really makes a difference and you have the opportunity to shine.

We are big enough to attract some genuinely interesting work that will allow you to stretch yourself but not so big that you will be trusted to handle only routine paperwork. Working closely alongside our partners, you will learn at an accelerated pace and have the opportunity to fast track your career.
