Nic co-founded and runs Lext Australia, an Australian legal technology start-up, under which Hearsay thrives. Prior to co-founding Lext, Nic also co-founded the boutique financial services law firm Assured Legal Solutions in Sydney’s CBD.

David Turner


David Turner has a gift for teasing out people’s stories, so it’s no wonder he is Hearsay’s host.

When he isn’t interviewing people on Hearsay, David is the co-founder and Head of Operations at Lext Australia, an Australian legal technology start-up (and Hearsay’s parent company). Prior to founding Lext, he practised as a barrister at the NSW Bar, and as a solicitor in law firms large and small.  David is a former President of NSW Young Lawyers and a former Councillor of the Law Society of NSW.  In addition to his LLB, David has completed his MBA at UNSW’s Graduate School of Management.

David spends the little downtime that he has left tinkering on home improvement projects and working on computer programming projects.

Ross Davis - Producer & Lawyer

Ross Davis

Producer & Lawyer

Ross Davis has an unhealthy obsession with following the latest in legal news and a nose for producing engaging content. He holds a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology, Government, and International Relations) and a Juris Doctor from the University of Sydney.

A reformed litigator, prior to Hearsay he worked in a knowledge role in Mergers and Acquisitions at a top-tier Australian firm and as a legal writer at one of the world’s largest legal publishers.

Away from Hearsay, Ross is a tennis tragic and a keen (sometimes barefoot) runner and can often be found hitting the pavement to the sounds of tunes and podcasts in Sydney and its surrounds.

Jacob Malby

Legal Researcher

Jacob Malby works as Hearsay’s legal researcher and is the resident tech guy (“have you tried turning it off then on again?”). He is also studying a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Communications and Media at the University of Wollongong.

Jacob has a keen interest in creating audio and video content. He enjoys working with technology, whether it be developing software, programming robots or editing photos and videos. He also loves learning and discussing both the law and its relationship with politics.

Jacob’s hobbies include playing soccer, watching soccer and playing soccer video games (so, a diverse range of interests…). He also loves to listen to comedy podcasts while he’s driving.
