Holly Hill, Partner and Sustainability Leader with MinterEllisonRuddWatts, joins us to discuss what her firm looks for when hiring new associates, especially those fresh from law school. Hill points out that the New Zealand-based law firm has experienced a unique pinch in the past several years as many of their prime associate targets were lured by lucrative offers from firms in Australia and even the United States. With competition for top legal talent remaining tight, the firm focused on building a solid early pipeline for incoming talent.


MinterEllisonRuddWatts is a leading full-service, legal, and business advisory firm. It is a New Zealand owned and operated partnership, dating back 140 years. It also has a strong international presence through the MinterEllison Legal Group — one of the largest full-service legal groups in the Asia-Pacific region. MinterEllisonRuddWatts has built a strong brand in the market with numerous accolades and Tier 1 rankings in the Legal 500 Asia Pacific.
