Legalite has been selected as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards 2022. The Australian Business Award for Employer of Choice [EOC] recognises organisations that develop workplaces that maximise the full potential of their workforce through established policies and practices which demonstrate effective employee recruitment, engagement and retention.

“From the beginning, Legalite has had a simple goal: to genuinely be a great place to work. With a highly collaborative work culture, we have invited our employees to be part of designing the programs, initiatives, strategies, and cultures that make us who we are. Being recognised as an Employer of Choice by the Australian Business Awards 2022 is not only an honour for Legalite as a firm, but recognition for every single team member who contributes to building our future.”

Marianne Marchesi, Managing Principal, Legalite

Legalite is an innovative and ground-breaking NewLaw firm.

The firm has flipped traditional law firm models on their head by:
1. Creating a teams based, collaborative culture where cross-pollination learning, and support thrives amongst staff.
2. Doing away with the billable hour and instead rewarding staff on the service and value they provide to clients.
3. Embedding an ethical and empathetic leadership style where the Managing Principal embeds culture through ‘walking her talk.’
4. Taking its flexible work practices to a new level by creating ‘work by design’ to integrate work into employee’s lifestyle, and
5. Implementing varied methods of staff learning and development that include programs to develop staff beyond their job description and into multi-award-winning industry leaders.

The firm could be considered the future of work here in the present day, adopting new and exciting technologies to deliver services to clients in creative ways, humanising legal services, giving back to the communities in which staff work and live, integrating seamlessly into its clients’ teams, and nurturing an unparalleled work environment for its staff.

Legalite has shone since its beginning in 2017 because of strong relationships with staff and clients, including through the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a shining beacon of a great place to work – the sort of superstar allrounder that nurtures creative, bright, emotionally intelligent and talented professionals who are not only working in law, but are also creating the future of it.
