Title: Lawyer
Age: 28

Joshua Butler is proud of his thought leadership across the industry, dedication to improving the way Lander & Rogers (L&R) delivers for its clients, and commitment to providing access to justice for those who need it most. Last year, he had the privilege to speak at a number of events on the topics of Blockchain in the Law, Smart Contract Standardisation and the Future of the Legal Profession. In late 2018, he formed a relationship between L&R and YBF Ventures and together, they launched Australia’s first LawTech Hub — an immersion program for lawtech startups to join the YBF Ventures community and work with L&R on proofs-of-work to solve real legal challenges. He also recently launched L&R’s Blockchain & Digital Assets Group, which works with the entire blockchain ecosystem to deliver sound legal advice in what is a challenging regulatory environment. As a member of LIV’s Refugee Law Reform Committee, he is passionate about assisting marginalised groups through pro bono work. He leads the firm’s Asylum Seeker Program as co-coordinator, managing a team of 15 lawyers acting for asylum seekers in protection visa matters in the Federal Court. In March 2019, he launched an online educational platform to help lawyers give pro bono assistance to asylum seekers, which he built from scratch.
