LawFuel says – 

Like all the large law firms, MinterEllisonRuddWatts creates a work hard environment, although there are reports of a culture that remains open to improvement.  Although the NZ firm has stars like LawFuel’s former Lawyer of the Year Stacey Shortall, the firm continues to demonstrate a strong move towards technology innovation.

MinterEllisonRuddWatts says – 

Our intern, summer clerk and graduate programme is critical to our firm’s success. Our graduates are an important part of our firm’s future. We know that graduates launching their careers today have unique expectations – and we have listened.

The legal landscape is changing, fast. We have invested in AI and are embracing the changes. We need agility to continue to grow and allow our talented people to future proof their careers.
