A perspective on Meridian from . . . .

Paul Baker | Managing Principal

I’m extremely passionate about Meridian Lawyers having played a part in establishing the firm when it was launched in 2004. Fast forward a decade or so and today we have more than 140 employees, offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle, Brisbane and Perth and are continuing to grow significantly.

As the Managing Principal at Meridian it’s my job to manage the operations, oversee and execute the strategic plan, mentor staff and act as custodian of the culture. I’m also responsible for growing the business and making sure we hit key targets.

As we are a growing firm, opportunities for career development and promotion abound. We have low turnover and a welcoming team.

In describing Meridian, I’d say we are highly collaborative and have an exceptional culture that promotes a sensible work–life balance. We are committed to excellence in everything we do, have a diverse client base and can offer varied and interesting work.

The type of people who excel here are those who are committed to their clients and to the firm – the sort of people who pride themselves on exceptional quality of work. Applicants should be highly personable, good team players and people who not only seek to provide exceptional service but are committed to helping others.

I’m genuinely excited about what the future holds for us and proud of our unique offering for clients and employees alike.
