Commercial Litigation Property Lawyers

Proud History, Bold Future, Since 1834

What’s it like working in a leading Tasmanian legal practice?

I have been working at Dobson Mitchell Allport (“DMA”) since September 2023 as a paralegal in the commercial litigation and insurance litigation teams. My days are varied, enriching, and rewarding, with the acquiring of new skills and the acceptance of new challenges. I assist my supervisors in reviewing and drafting documents, undertaking legal research, drafting articles on recent developments in the law and high-level legal support across the practice.

Working at Dobson Mitchell Allport has given me an extremely encouraging environment to put the knowledge I gain at law school to practical use. From refining my legal research skills to drafting advice for clients and engaging in business development, Dobson Mitchell Allport does it all! In addition to the experience, I get to work with a team that is incredibly nurturing, and always take the time to answer any questions I have, no matter how basic they are. I also have ample opportunity to seek feedback, which will only (hopefully) make me a better lawyer.

We also give back to the community, which I find important in setting a positive workplace culture. With initiatives to donate to organisations like Dress for Success and the Red Cross, DMA really values its place in the community, and in turn value their employees. I would recommend working here to anyone and everyone, it has been an incredible start to my legal career in Australia.
