Colin Biggers & Paisley
Founded over a century ago, Colin Biggers & Paisley is one of the oldest legal practices in the country. Our key fields of expertise are construction, property and insurance and we maintain a strong presence in the areas of agribusiness, banking and finance, education, energy, mining and resources, and government.
Our offices in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney encourage creativity, collaboration and productivity. Whether it’s relaxing with a drink on a Friday night, joining our netball team or enjoying a complimentary massage, we offer a suite of unique employee benefits.
If you’re a law student in your penultimate year, our Clerkship Programs will expose you to the fast pace of a full-service commercial law firm and show you the law in action. You’ll be working under the guidance of some of the sharpest legal minds in Australia, on challenging, complex and high-profile transactions and matters. You’ll be mentored by partners and lawyers who are leaders in their fields, in a firm where individuality is embraced and innovation actively encouraged. Our Clerkship Programs are our future pipeline for the Graduate Program. They are designed to give you a feel for what it’s like to be a Graduate and they are a great place to start your career.
