Commercial Lawyer (2-3 PQE)

We’re a disruptive new kind of law firm with a mission to change the way legal services are delivered. Our mission is to provide affordable and accessible legal services for start-ups and small businesses. After years of award-winning growth in Australia, our firm has also recently expanded into the UK market.

We’re focused on efficiency, simplicity and embracing technology, and have been recognised as the NewLaw Firm of the Year at the 2020 and 2021 Australian Law Awards, as the Australasian Lawyers Employers of Choice 2021, in Deloitte’s 2020 Asia Pacific Technology Fast 500 and 36th fastest growing company in Australia in AFR’s Fast Starters List. Find out more about us in this video.


We offer clients a range of fixed-fee legal packages, covering everything that small businesses and start-ups need – things like company set up, trade marks, commercial contracts, online terms, employment, capital raising and data protection. We run our business like a tech start-up, with user experience, creativity and lean thinking at the core of our culture.


Position: Commercial Lawyer (2-3 PQE).

Schedule: Full time. Hours are flexible. Start early 2022.

Location: We are a distributed company and encourage you to WFH, but we do have an office in Sydney and co-working options available if you prefer.


We’re looking for a qualified lawyer with 2-3 years PQE in general commercial law, preferably having worked in a leading private practice or in-house environment in Australia.

This is a junior lawyer role, so there would be supervision from senior lawyers. However, the successful candidate should be confident to take ownership of most matters, particularly in basic commercial law.

In addition, specialisation in any of the following areas would be favourably considered:

  • Technology & IP contracts
  • Trademarks
  • Commercial and retail leases
  • Employment
  • Franchising
  • Privacy and data protection
  • Online business

Note: We do not do any dispute or litigation work.

Key skills

  • Personable, with experience working directly with clients
  • Tech-savvy, able to operate out technology platforms
  • Independent, comfortable working autonomously
  • Efficient, works smart and get things done


Our clients include all kinds of businesses, from local cafes to tech start-ups, so you’ll always have a variety of work. As an early career lawyer, you’re given the opportunity to work across a range of areas of commercial law and take on a high volume of clients – super-charging your experience early in your career.

You’ll get to work autonomously while being part of an innovative and collaborative team. We have a fully distributed international team and take flexible working seriously. Our general approach is that you can choose how you best work, whether it be from home, the office, or somewhere else. For us it’s more than just taking your laptop home – we know that it takes effective project management, communication and transparent accountability to make flexible arrangements work.

We also have an awesome company culture, and you’ll always feel welcome at our in-person and virtual social events.

If you’re ready to be part of an exciting and growing team that is changing the way legal services are delivered, then we’d love to receive your application!
