As the Head of LegalVision’s Legal Transformation team, Thomas is a lawyer working at the leading edge of a rapidly-changing legal industry.
Thomas joined LegalVision after spending a year as an Associate to Justice Kiefel (now Chief Justice) at the High Court of Australia, the peak court in Australia’s judicial hierarchy. Before that, Thomas was a lawyer in the competition and consumer law group at Allens, one of Australia’s top corporate law firms, and a researcher for the Equity Division of the Supreme Court of New South Wales. Through these experiences, Thomas has developed a strong background in resolving commercial disputes and providing pragmatic advice to clients in relation to regulatory issues – including merger clearances, anti-competitive conduct and ACCC investigations.
In his current role, Thomas leads a team responsible for identifying and implementing innovative models of legal service delivery for large corporates and fast-growing businesses. He works with his clients to design legal solutions that are cost-effective and responsive to commercial needs, while maintaining a high quality of legal support. Thomas’ practice brings together legal expertise, legal consulting and legal technology capabilities.
Thomas is a member of the Legal Technology Committee of the Law Society of New South Wales. He has also published articles in leading legal journals and taught property law at the University of Sydney.

The legal work provided by the team at LegalVision has been invaluable to Just Cuts. LegalVision’s balance between quality and efficiency is particularly impressive and integral to the success of our many franchised outlets. Their lawyers maintain a consistently high quality of service and their fixed-fee approach is a breath of fresh air.
Amber Turnbull, Just Cuts (COO)
LegalVision assisted with a number of legal docs and advice including negotiating with large corporates. They demonstrate pragmatism, experience and deep understanding of our business' risk profile, and has led to us counting LegalVision as an integral ingredient to the overall success of our business.
Anthony Bekker, ROKT (Head of Operations Strategy)
We have worked with LegalVision on our shareholders agreement, employee share scheme and a capital raise. Their fees are very reasonable compared to “name” firms and they have repeatedly gone the extra mile and demonstrate they know the startup space.
John Baini, TruePillars (Co-Founder & CEO)
LegalVision's lawyers are the team you want by your side when reviewing and negotiating contract terms. We’ve worked with LegalVision during our Friends & Family Round where they prepared our convertible notes, and during our seed round which we closed with excellent terms and well ahead of schedule.
