In a nutshell, what does your business group/service line do?

The Commercial Law team of KPMG Law complements the traditional KPMG service offerings by providing high quality legal services to our clients as part of a ‘one KPMG’ integrated team. Our strategy is to provide end-to-end solutions to our clients through our expertise in:

  • public and private M&A
  • equity capital markets
  • foreign investment
  • corporate and commercial advisory
  • competition and trade practices
  • workplace and employment
  • real estate.

What does the average day look like?

There is no such thing as an average day in the Commercial Law team as you will constantly be learning new things and getting involved with different tasks. You will be an integral part of a focused and cohesive team and will gain experience through meeting and discussing client engagements with other KPMG service lines and clients, getting to know your colleagues across the diverse service lines at KPMG, reviewing and drafting documents, researching different areas of the law and providing support to senior team members. From day one you will be challenged to think about solutions for clients from both a legal and commercial perspective.

What will I learn in the first year?

You will learn the fundamental legal skills required for your career in an evolving legal services market. You will be part of a dynamic team of market leading lawyers who will provide you with the platform to learn the technical skills required to be successful in your role. Additionally, due to the unique nature and position of the KPMG Law team, you will also learn invaluable business skills to prepare you for the delivery of an innovative legal services offering. What’s the best part of the role? The best part of the role is working for a dynamic team of highly talented and successful people. The Commercial Law team is a tight knit group who are actively interested and invested in your success and ability to contribute to the team. The team has an extremely supportive and collaborative culture which makes work an enjoyable and engaging experience, and this is reflected in KPMG being ranked in the top five of the AFR Top 100 Graduate Employers List.
