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 Aotearoa, Australia and the UK, and we’re just scratching the surface. We were proud to win Law Firm of the Year at the 2021 and 2022 Australasian Law Awards, and in 2023 we were named an Excellence Awardee at the same event.

Our New Zealand team works fully remotely, providing an unparalleled opportunity to practice law and assist quality corporate clients, all from the comfort of your own home (or bach, local cafe, ski fields - you get the idea!).

The Opportunity

Our practice focuses on a broad mix of litigious and pre-litigation advisory matters, so if you like variety, lots of client contact, and taking ownership of your work, this may be the ideal position for you.

Given the nature of the work and the current mix of the team, demonstrated hands-on experience in commercial, corporate and employment law matters, including previous exposure to, and experience in, all aspects of disputes from initial advice and strategy to final resolution by negotiation, mediation, arbitration and trial is essential.
