We focus on the things that count. First and foremost, we enjoy and appreciate a job well done. Continuous learning is a key part of our culture. We work hard, but not more hours than we need to.
Everyone makes a difference. Regardless of the role, each person contributes directly to the success of our clients and to the success of the firm. Everyone's contribution is recognised. No one is here to make up the numbers.
The work is varied, which keeps things interesting. It also provides endless opportunities to learn new skills. Virtually all roles are client-facing. All lawyers are responsible for doing actual legal work, not just managing teams or performing a minor role as part of a much larger transaction. Every person matters.
The standards are high. Virtually all of our work involves a national or international firm on the other side. We compete for new work based on the quality of what we do. Consequently, second-rate is not an option.
The office atmosphere is supportive and friendly. We don’t work with (or for) people we don’t like and respect. If we spend time with each other out-of-hours, it’s not out of obligation.
Junior Lawyer (Current Employee)
There's a lot of training and one-on-one support, and we're encouraged to get involved. I'm engaging directly with clients, contributing in meetings, and I get a variety of matters to work on. It's a great place to work.
The culture is one of confident, relaxed professionalism.
The firm is currently led by two principals. Both graduated Sydney University law school, both hold MBAs, both hold degrees with first class honours (or equivalent), and both play an active role in mentoring the team. The opportunity to work directly with such senior, high calibre lawyers is one of the drawcards of a career at the firm.
We work in a beautiful space. Completed in early 2017, our office is filled with light and is a joy to work in. Sit-stand-desks, different working areas and even sparkling water on tap all contribute to a fantastic work environment.
We rely heavily on technology. We use a wider range of software applications than most firms, and we are constantly looking for new and better ways of doing things. We have the capacity to work remotely and provide flexible working arrangements when needed.
We look for people who are very good at what they do, and who strive to be better. People who work at Turtons:
Particularly for legal roles, a strong academic background is key.
We like people who have a sense of humour, and who are happy to support those around them.
We hire people who want to make a difference and who enjoy working as part of a team.
Former Employee (Lawyer)
Employed for 5+ years
It’s an amazingly supportive place to work. I learned the practical side of commercial law and the importance of detail. My time there was invaluable to my development as a lawyer.
