Job Satisfaction at Henry Davis York

Please comment on your role and day-to-day responsibilities.

I have had access to great work with a significant amount of responsibility, even at a junior (graduate) level.
Graduate, Sydney
Although quite junior, I have been granted a significant level of responsibility. This has both pros and cons, in that responsibility often requires supervision as well.
Entry level, Sydney
Presently seconded to the client. I assist in process and the development of matters (incl. conducting case summaries, evidentiary analyses, chronologies).

I have been given a varied range of work and responsibilities, and no day is ever the same. They expect a lot, but they will always ensure that you have the tools and abilities to perform the task.

One of several mid-level (2-3 years PAE) lawyers in the firm's property, environment and major projects practice. My role is to assist the partners and senior associates with the preparation, negotiation and finalisation of property agreements, such as contracts for the sale or purchase of major commercial and industrial assets (e.g. shopping centres and commercial office towers), leases, development agreements, compulsory acquisition documents for major infrastructure projects, memorandums of understanding, and project delivery agreements. I also advise clients in relation to their property law queries and act for clients in pre-litigation property disputes (e.g. tenancy disputes). I am not required to attend court for any matters, although I have previously been given the opportunity (and have) done so.

Midlevel, Sydney
As a grad, I am given a lot of autonomy and responsibility. I have my own matters and am encouraged to attempt tasks I have not done before. I am provided with ongoing feedback so I know that I am on track. I work daily with partners, senior associates and lawyers. I attend court for directions hearings (unsupervised), draft letters and advices, liaise with the client and other lawyers. I find the work to be varied and meaningful.
