Lawyer Traits





Our solicitors project the personality we hope defines our firm: innovative, energetic, efficient and most importantly, trustworthy.




Because our clients trust us with work traditionally sent to law firms, we rely heavily on our solicitors to exhibit exceptional judgement.




Service is the defining theme of our firm and we're committed to getting it right.  For us, this means demonstrating to our clients that we "get it".  We delight in exceeding our clients' expectations and, in return, our clients reward us with loyalty and interesting work.




Our solicitors thrive with the change inherent to any litigation, and they take real pleasure in problem-solving in response to shifting priorities.




Communication is key to our success.  We communicate constructively and concisely, we're hard working and demonstrate grace under pressure.

What kind of experience do I need?


Our people are highly accomplished but the depth and breadth of their experience varies depending on their position.  Solicitors who provide legal services to our business clients must have in-house legal experience and demonstrate the ability to provide commercially viable legal solutions and outstanding service to our clients.   


What positions are available?


We will advertise any vacancies on our website when a vacancy arises.


How can I submit my resume?


When a vacancy arises, please send your resume to the email address on the advertisement and specify the position you are applying for in your covering letter.


Where would I be required to work?


We operate out of two main offices located in Bentleigh & Mount Waverley.  However, our clients are based all over Melbourne and travel to a client's location may be required.


Do I need to follow-up after submitting my resume?


It is not necessary to follow up your application.  Every resume is thoroughly screened and considered. We will contact you to schedule an interview if we feel your experience closely matches our requirements.


What is the interview process?


Generally, applicants can expect 2 to 3 rounds of interviews. The first round is typically with our management team and subsequent rounds are an opportunity to get to know the people you will be working with. We know that we ask a lot of our candidates, but we are incredibly selective in our hiring and meticulously focused on creating a truly special and addictive culture. Thank you in advance for your patience.

Company Culture



Our Culture


MLB succeeds by being creative, thoughtful and working hard with our clients to meet their individual requirements.  What we don’t do is mess around and cut corners and get ourselves in trouble. That means that when it comes to issues like conflicts of interest, confidentiality, harassment, accounting etc., we don’t even get close to the line.

We pride ourselves on being the good guys. We’d rather have an off year, or face the music of telling the truth, than do something that’s ethically questionable, or legally borderline. That’s the gist.
