Creating the future of the Law
Transforming Legal Value
At Plexus, we are problem solvers who thrive on seeing the world differently. Everything we do, we assess against how it optimises the creation of value. We challenge ourselves and every one of our clients to do the same.
When we started in 2011, we were motivated by our observations of the hugely negative sentiment playing out in the legal sector. Strikingly low levels of client satisfaction with law firms, low levels of meaningful innovation or technological advancement and a profession with higher levels of depression than any other. It was truly an environment in need of transformation, and frankly still is.
It is our belief that Lawyers wish to reclaim the passion they have always had about practicing law in stimulating and value-enhancing ways. Lawyers want their intellectual curiosity stirred and their capacity to positively impact the world magnified. At the same time organisations are under increasing pressure to reduce costs and drive productivity. They are demanding new ways of thinking and operating, with a clear mandate for demonstrable value creation from every function, Legal included.
Transforming how legal value is created begins by understanding that not all value is created equally. Our end game is liberating legal teams to focus on high-value business activities by providing fit for purpose technology and talent. Our leadership in legal automaton and agile resourcing services is transforming how legal teams drive productivity and commercial outcomes for their organisations.
Transforming legal value dictates a different future – our role as leaders in this revolution means we will forever be shaping that future and leading that change. It is the challenge we thrive on.

Dougall Stevenson, Legal Consultant
Plexus people are relentlessly curious and hell-bent on challenging the status quo. We are client obsessed, we believe in being ‘the best version of ourselves’, we start with a ‘growth mindset’ and ‘positive intent’, we believe there is always a better way. We set the bar high, are outcome focused and hate politics or anything that gets in the way of great outcomes. We embrace change, as there are no maps for where we are going. This isn’t for everyone. Many people love the comfort of a big predictable company. But if you love a challenge, and want to create the future there are few better places to be.

Working at Plexus
Our team is framed by diverse minds. Lawyers, software engineers, marketers, analysts, and scientists. Our beginners mindset allows us to strip tradition bare. To highlight root causes and smash the shackles of suffocating outmoded practices. Different thinkers drive different paradigms and a sense of endless possibilities.
We attract like-minded change agents, all endeared with a touch of maverick and a load of talent. Embracing the potency of technology, not for any self serving mandate, but for the transformational legacy that it can create.
Likewise, our ability to attract a community of talented lawyers, inspired by a more dynamic and fluid career setting, means we can resource legal teams in the flexible manner that make sense and deliver optimal value.
