LawFuel.com – New Zealand Law Jobs – Down here in Down Under (New Zealand, to be specific) we’ve had the Robert Walters recruitment firm launch a second office – in Wellington, our home town as it happens. But what’s interesting is that the firm has released data showing the massive money (by antipodean standards) being offered to lawyers from Down Under by the London branches of major US law firms like Skaddens, Fried Frank and others.

The US firms are looking for lawyers with between one and three years’ experience by offering salaries of between £100,000 and £120,000 — up to 30 per cent more than rival “magic circle” practices such as Clifford Chance and Linklaters, according to the Robert Walters report.
