We’re seeking a candidate with a current practicing certificate in an Australian jurisdiction and a strong understanding of data and privacy law, IP and digital/technology law. You’ll also have a strong understanding of commercial and contractual legal issues, relevant privacy and IP risks, and previous experience dealing with similar matters in a law firm or in-house.
