Keypoint Law has appointed Corinne Attard as a principal lawyer to lead its newly launched franchising practice.

The firm said that Attard is one of the most well-respected franchising and retail law specialists in Australia. Since 2014, she has been named one of the country’s leading franchising lawyers by International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers.

Attard brought to Keypoint more than 25 years’ experience, including as group legal counsel of a franchise group with oversight of more than 350 stores. Keypoint said that she represents some of the country’s most recognisable suppliers of food, restaurants, household services, business-to-business services, health and aged-care providers, and retailers.

Warren Kalinko, Keypoint chief executive, said that the new practice expands the firm’s client offering to 22 areas of law. He also praised Attard, who joined the firm from Holman Webb lawyers, where she was a corporate partner.

“Corinne is truly a leader in this area, and her expertise will round out our already strong corporate offering,” said Kalinko. “Corinne’s impressively broad experience ranges from establishing, buying and selling franchise groups to IP and international expansion. Our clients will benefit from her outcome oriented and risk management‐based approach.”
