Syd & Melb Lawyers: Plexus presents new research The Agile Legal Function live in Oct. Get Tickets.

Taking the law out of the old firm

By Cara Waters For Business section, The Age

04 March 2012

A new company, Plexus, is trying to shake up what it has labelled the "incredibly conservative and risk-averse" Australian legal market and its "legal industry duopoly" where work is done either by a law firm or in-house.

Plexus insists it is not a law firm. Instead, it is a network of 280 lawyers founded by barrister Andrew Meagher and consultant Andrew Mellett on the premise that not all lawyers want to work for a firm, or full time.

Plexus' legal work goes beyond basic due diligence and discovery to more complex work including contractual reviews, rebuilding compliance functions and reviewing credit collection functions.
