Lucienne Maxwell is the Founder and Director of Essia Law, an innovative Australian law firm focused on providing exceptional legal services to clients. Lucienne's passion for law started early, and she was admitted to practice in 2010 after studying a combined Bachelor of Laws and Business at the University of Technology Sydney.
Lucienne started her legal career at one of Australia's leading top-tier law firms, where she worked in the Mergers and Acquisitions team, focusing on consumer law and intellectual property. She then moved to a leading boutique firm in Sydney, where she pursued her focus on consumer law.
After gaining extensive experience in private practice and as in-house legal counsel at a major multinational in the fast-moving consumer goods industry, Lucienne saw the need for a new type of law firm that put the needs of clients first. She was motivated to challenge the traditional time-based billing method used by many law firms, which can be inefficient and result in additional costs to the client. She was also passionate about making it easier for all Australians to access legal services by providing lawyers that are available online and by offering competitive rates for legal fees that are made clear upfront.
Lucienne founded Essia Law in 2022 with a goal to address both these inefficiencies and issues of accessibility by creating the most client centric law firm in Australia. Its focus is delivering an exceptional service that is easily accessible online and is priced competitively and transparently. Lucienne in particular focuses on consumer law, start-ups, contracts, and privacy law for the firm’s commercial clients including a leading Australian ASX listed entity, to provide pragmatic legal advice that makes business sense in the unique circumstances of each client.
