The 25-year-old, who follows the arrival of prop Tomas Francis from London Scottish, has also played for ACT Brumbies A team in his native Australia.
After signing his deal with Aviva Premiership side, Lees revealed the chance to move to Exeter was too good to turn down.
Lees said: "I'm really excited by the move, I've had a great season with London Welsh and really enjoyed my time there, but moving to the Chiefs is an opportunity I couldn't turn down.
"This is only my second year as a professional player, so this move has come a lot earlier than I imagined it would have done.
"Exeter are a great club, one of the top sides in England, so to get the chance to come to play for them is a big thing for me."
