LegalStream is an Australian company specialising in streamlined, efficient and cost effective legal and lender process outsourcing services right through the mortgage cycle. We employ over 60 local expert staff with no offshore operations.

LegalStream started life in 1970 as a law stationer and legal agent, where we established strong relationships and a solid reputation within the legal community and public sector. Since then our business has evolved and expanded and, in 2004, the legal corporation LegalStream was created. Our services now extend to end to end mortgage processing for lending institutions, mortgage recovery and property presenting as well as support services to mortgage brokers and financial advisers, across Australia.

Our reputation for consistently high standards, innovation in service delivery and strong customer focus is based on an impressive track record: LegalStream has provided continuous mortgage processing services for mortgage originators and brokers – including for four major bank lenders – since 1997 and is subcontractor to more than 450 law firms.

LegalStream clients benefit from our culture of continuous innovation and integration of proven technologies with rigorous quality assurance that delivers bottom line savings, greater process efficiency and productivity gains.

Our People

LegalStream's management is led by Managing Director, Joe O’Neill who takes direct responsibility for the performance of the entire LegalStream team.
