LegalVision is a market disruptor in the commercial legal services industry. Our mission is to power the success of every business by delivering legal support that is proactive, affordable and commercial, and the key way we do this is through our industry-first legal services membership. We have assisted over 200,000 businesses across the UK, Australia and New Zealand, and we’re just scratching the surface. We were named Law Firm of the Year at the 2021 and 2022 Australasian Law Awards and a 5 star Employer of Choice by Australiasian Lawyer in 2023.

The Opportunity

To keep up with continued growth in our commercial disputes and litigation practice area, we’ve created a new role for a talented and driven 4-6 PQE lawyer to join our team as Senior Lawyer. This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced and versatile lawyer, looking to apply their knowledge and skillset in a fast-paced, friendly and collaborative environment, whilst running their own matters and mentoring junior lawyers.

Our practice focuses on a broad mix of litigious and pre-litigation advisory matters, so if you like variety, lots of client contact, taking ownership of your matters and coaching junior team members, this may be the ideal position for you. Given the nature of the work and the current mix of the team, hands-on experience in disputes relating to contract law, Australian Consumer Law and the Corporations Act is essential. Additional experience in relation to disputes involving regulators, commercial and retail leasing, construction, or intellectual property is highly desirable.

Candidates should be confident with processes and rules of the NSW Courts and the Federal Court. Experience in other jurisdictions will be highly regarded, as will experience acting in proceedings before the NSW Civil and Tribunal Administrative Tribunal (or other state equivalent bodies).

  • Attentive: Brilliant attention to detail; nothing ever slips through the cracks.
  • Efficient: Prioritises effectively; focuses on what matters; works productively.
  • Commercial: Demonstrates business acumen; cares about business growth (including helping to grow LegalVision further).
  • Collaborative: Gets a kick out of working with smart, fun and passionate people and learning from them.
  • Adaptable: Grasps new concepts quickly; improves every day; goes with the flow.
  • Service Orientated: Loves assisting clients and providing an amazing experience.
  • Optimistic: Sees the best in situations; is solutions focused; never gives up.

The Perks

  • Fast-paced environment with accelerated growth opportunities for high performers.
  • Talented and energetic teammates across the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
  • No suits, and no unrealistic billable hour targets!
  • 25 days annual leave per year, plus birthday leave, volunteering leave, and paid parental leave.
  • Annual budget to spend on external learning and development.
