Senior Capital Markets Lawyer – Sydney

In today’s regulatory environment the use of technology to manage legal documentation is essential. The financial crisis has highlighted the inadequacy of traditional documentation systems to adequately capture the risks embedded within contracts. Frequently, however, banks have lacked the internal skill-set needed to deliver legal-data infrastructure to the satisfaction of regulators and internal departments.

D2 Legal Technology was formed in November 2011 to meet this specialist skills-gap. The firm consists of a team of experts with an understanding of the law and the way in which in-house legal teams operate, alongside practical reference-data and technology expertise.

We have grown rapidly over the last seven years, due to industry and client demand, to a firm of nearly one hundred consultants across EMEA and North America.  Along this journey, we have numerous prestigious awards for our work, including 1st place for “[Legal] Data, Knowledge and Intelligence” in the 2017 FT Innovative Lawyers Awards, as well as an “Outstanding” rating for Collaboration.
