Chapman Tripp strives to be and be known as the market leading law firm, helping our clients shape their future. We deliver the highest levels of legal and business performance to our clients - we are dynamic, astute and collaborative. We act with honesty and integrity and we respect and value individuality and diversity in our people.
We are looking for a highly organised and proactive Project Services Coordinator, based in our Wellington office, to provide outstanding paralegal support to our lawyers, partners and clients, throughout all stages of a case (including discovery, witness briefing, preparation for trial and assistance during the trial).
This challenging and varied role provides the opportunity to work in a busy, yet social and supportive team. You will be responsible for hard copy and electronic document management, organising large volumes of documents, using litigation support tools, providing advice and information to legal teams, tracking and cataloguing of documents, assistance with producing casebooks and other general litigation support.
We are looking for someone with electronic document management experience, ideally within the legal field. A law related qualification is advantageous, but not essential. Previous experience in a professional services environment is desirable.
You will have strong attention to detail, top notch negotiation skills and the ability to understand instructions quickly. You will be highly organised, have a sound knowledge of Windows systems and be comfortable using litigation support software in order to manage large amounts of information.
This role requires an enthusiastic, driven individual who uses their initiative and works well within a team environment. They must also have the ability to remain calm under pressure, and maintain a friendly ‘can do’ attitude at all times.
