Title: Senior lawyer
Madeleine Hunt is a corporate lawyer who primarily works with startup clients but is also actively involved in some of the industry’s largest capital raising deals. In the three years since Hunt’s admission to the practice, she has made a significant contribution to the Australian startup landscape and to LegalVision (LV). For this, she was promoted to senior lawyer in July 2019 at just two-and-a-half years PQE. Her contributions to the emerging startup market include providing accessible, practical advice to clients and staying active in business development projects aimed at innovating the way the firm delivers its legal services to improve the client experience. For example, this year she worked with LV’s in-house tech team on the development of a document automation software to allow the firm’s lawyers to spend more time with clients and decrease the cost of its services. Hunt is also keen to share her technical knowledge with the industry and has created a large number of free educational resources, including over 30 articles, webinars and of particular note, the LV Startup Manual (co-author), a resource aimed at helping startup founders grow and scale their businesses. It has been downloaded over 6,000 times. She also speaks at industry events and runs training sessions and workshops.
