Your role at LUNA:

  • Australian and International Trade Mark applications — providing advice in relation to trade marks and assisting with applications and associated filings.

  • IP Advisory — providing clients with advice around protecting and unlocking their most valuable intellectual property. We work with startups in a range of industries – from tech to fashion, agriculture to medical tech so you’ll be advising on a diverse set of commercial contexts.

  • Build LUNA’s IP Practice — we want you to play an integral role in building out our IP offering. Alongside our senior team members, you will be helping us scale LUNA’s IP team (everything from system and process design to product and marketing strategy).

  • BD — we don’t see rain making as something that is just for Partners — it’s a core skill for a young entrepreneur and that’s exactly how we see all of our team: entrepreneurial in spirit and attitude. This might mean attending and representing LUNA at startup events or taking clients out for coffee but we will let you dictate how you approach BD.

  • Impact — we want to have impact beyond our legal and accounting services. This means presenting to accelerator programs and founders, writing up helpful articles and blog posts and using tech to build out new legal products.
