WHY WORK WITH US

What is it like to work at Sharrock Pitman Legal?

I commenced working at Sharrock Pitman Legal as a Senior Associate in February 2020. Prior to joining Sharrock Pitman Legal, I practised at a top tier law firm, a boutique commercial firm and an Ombudsman scheme in Melbourne’s CBD. I also worked previously in Sydney at a mid-tier commercial litigation firm and corporate insolvency firm in the city.


The role at Sharrock Pitman Legal was the first time I had worked at a suburban law practice during my 20+ years in the legal industry. I was somewhat apprehensive as to whether this “change of scenery” would hinder my career opportunities. Would the move away from the CBD mean I wouldn’t be able to attend the city courts for appearances as easily? Would I lose touch with my litigation colleagues and my panel of barristers I had spent many years doing the networking rounds with and building professional rapport? I was physically moving away from everything I had ever known about working as a litigator in the CBD.
