The seasoned lawyer has worked at several top-tier firms and has run her own commercial legal practice
A seasoned lawyer with extensive experience in commercial and property law has joined Creevey Russell Lawyers.
Helen Kay has joined the firm as special counsel. She made the move from Hynes Legal, where she was associate director.
She was also previously a practice leader at LegalVision, head of corporate and commercial at Panetta McGrath Lawyers, managing director at Rise Legal, senior associate at Allens, and senior solicitor at Herbert Smith Freehills. She has also practiced in the UK.
“During her 16-year career, Helen has provided targeted commercial and property advice to listed companies, private and not-for-profit organisations, overseas clients, private investors, and state governments on all aspects of commercial transactional work, including high-profile developments, acquisitions, disposals, and mergers,” said Damian Bell, who leads Creevey Russell’s property and commercial law team.
“Helen has also provided specialist advice in relation to the acquisition and development of senior accommodation, including retirement villages,” he said. “Helen is passionate about working closely with her clients to understand their business and help them to achieve their strategic goals. She brings with her a wealth of experience and will be a valued team member and trusted legal advisor to our clients.”
Kay said that she looks forward to both join and grow the commercial team and to achieve successful outcomes for clients.
“Creevey Russell are a well-established yet forward thinking law firm which, in the current climate, are attributes I believe all law farms need to possess. The technology and experience that the firm has to offer its clients are second to none,” she said.
