Managing Partner Paul Hopkins said, “We are delighted to have been recognised as an employer of choice by Australasian Lawyer. The initiatives ranked in the Employer of Choice survey confirm our commitment to offering benefits to all staff throughout the firm.  We’ve worked hard over many years to be able to offer our staff a working environment which meets both their personal and business needs”.

Addressing some of the requisites covered by the survey, Mr Hopkins continued, “We recognise that staff have responsibilities and commitments outside of the workplace and we offer a number of flexible working arrangements. This is linked closely to our wellbeing initiatives such as our CN|Alive and CN|Benefits programs where we aim to provide a balanced environment for all staff. Through our CN|Advance program, we provide our lawyers with clear pathways to develop their skills and specialist area of practice. As a whole, these drivers all come together to cement our collegiate culture and ‘one team’ philosophy. This leads to staff who are passionate about serving their clients and developing their careers and this is ultimately what sets us apart”.
