At Plexus we are building a platform for a happier lawyer. We have no dress code, no partnership structure, no office politics.
We think passions are what make people great. We think outside interests make people better professionals. Most importantly, being a great mother or a great lawyer, or having a healthy income or a healthy life; should never be mutually exclusive choices.
Our mantra is:
Sleep peacefully / Work purposefully / Live passionately
The traditional law firm model is broken. Work-life balance is an oxymoron. The road to partnership has never been longer or more congested. Pressure from clients to increase efficiency just means longer hours with more write-offs.
Perhaps it is no surprise then that law firm employee attrition is 36% per annum, depression rates are the highest in any industry and third year solicitor compensation is only $33.21 per hour. This is hardly the prestigious and engaging career we all signed up for.
You’re smart and talented. Why NOT work for us?
From our inception we have been the people who think differently. We are established to ‘transform the value’ delivered to clients and provide a more compelling career alternative for lawyers. We do this through world-first technology enablers, New Law outsourcing and through seconding our lawyers to run projects, or ‘insource’ work that would have been sent to traditional law firms.
The Age liked us so much they profiled us as a cool company.

What is working for us like?
Working with us means being part of something new, having the power of choice, living more of the career you want and less of what you don’t. Our people have full discretion to decline or accept engagements as it suits them. Have a big skiing trip planned? Want to focus on knocking out that Masters? School holidays? Simply let us know and we’ll just run the next engagement by you when you’re ready.
You will get everything you want from a great law firm without the stuff you hate. You won’t find corner offices, billable targets, or office politics here. When you join our team you will have the opportunity to direct your practice, take advantage of our learning and development resources, work from our offices or the clients’ and enjoy a young, relaxed culture.
We work with 65% of the ASX100 so you will get challenging, interesting and varied work with Australia’s leading legal teams.
