LegalVision is a market disruptor in the legal services industry. We have an innovative business model, custom-built technology embedded from the ground up, and a client centred approach. These qualities enable our lawyers and attorneys to provide a high quality, faster and more cost-effective legal solution and client experience. 
We’re a national firm that has serviced more than 12,000 businesses. We have grown from a team of 2 to well over 100 in just a few years and there is much more growth to come. Our team is ambitious, skilled and diverse. We have a true startup ethos where ideas are valued and collaboration is critical. 

The Opportunity

To keep up with client demand, we’re looking for a talented Associate/Senior Associate level Registered Australian Patent Attorney to join the team in Sydney. Preferably the candidate would have a technical background in an engineering field.  

As a Patent Attorney, you will be responsible for providing high-quality services and advice to a broad range of clients and helping develop and grow our practice. You will work directly with our existing Patents team to leverage your technical background to increase the offering of our practice.  

Beyond working directly on patents within your specialty, you will be involved in working with the internal LegalVision transformation team to develop and implement new and more efficient ways for the team to work.  

This position is ideal for a 2+ year Registered Australian Patent Attorney with skills and experience that compliment those of our current team. We may also consider qualified US, UK or European attorneys.

You must have a ‘can do’ attitude and be comfortable in an environment of constant change. You look for solutions as opposed to just identifying problems.
