Special Council Helen Kay has accepted a position as a Partner with Creevey Russell Lawyers, with the leading Queensland legal firm’s partnership ranks now 50 per cent female.
A highly experienced senior commercial and property lawyer, Ms Kay joined the firm as a Special Counsel in January this year and has moved into partnership alongside Co-Principals Dan Creevey and Clare Creevey and accredited specialist personal injuries lawyer Tom Rynders.
Dan Creevey said Ms Kay accepting the partnership with the firm was an exciting development for Creevey Russell Lawyers, which this year is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
“Helen has been a tremendous asset for the firm since she came to Creevey Russell after working within top tier firms in the United Kingdom and Australia as well as running her own legal practice and heading up various other successful commercial practices,” he said.
“Creevey Russell has benefited from Helen’s experience in corporate and commercial matters including business sales and acquisitions, leasing, franchising, corporate structuring and commercial property transactions. Helen is passionate about working closely with her clients to understand their business and help them to achieve their strategic goals.”
Clare Creevey said the firm was proud and delighted that 50 per cent of its partners were women.
“It’s very exciting to have Helen become a Partner with Creevey Russell Lawyers as she has already brought so much to the firm,” Ms Creevey said.
“It’s also a proud milestone for the firm to have women as 50 per cent of our equity partners. We have been committed to building a gender equal firm, and addressing economic inequality for women is an important issue for the legal community.”
Ms Kay said she was excited about the opportunity to be a Partner with Creevey Russell Lawyers.
“Creevey Russell is a forward thinking law firm which offers its clients exceptional service across all areas of the law,” she said.
