HSF property star to head up KHQ Lawyers team

A seasoned property lawyer from Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) has been appointed to head up the commercial property and development team at KHQ Lawyers.

Dinh Ptok has spent almost two decades focusing on commercial property law – with more than 14 years of experience gained while she was with HSF. She has played a role in a number of major development projects in Victoria.

Her considerable expertise “adds significant weight to KHQ’s commercial property capability,” KHQ Lawyers said.

“Dinh is an exceptional property lawyer with an impressive pedigree. I couldn’t be happier that Dinh chose KHQ as the springboard for the next phase of her career and look forward to supporting her as she expands the firm’s commercial property offering,” managing director David Kelly said.

Ptok said that KHQ Lawyers’ size and culture “enables our people to think outside the box and put the client and our people at the heart of everything we do.”

“It’s great to be a part of KHQ Lawyers’ strategic growth. I look forward to combining excellence in service with an approach to costs that listens to the market,” she said.

The firm said that Ptok’s appointment was another indication of the firm’s success in 2020 in spite of COVID-19’s impact.

“The firm has weathered the COVID-19 storm incredibly well, while simultaneously continuing the fulfilment of our strategic growth blueprint,” KHQ Lawyers said. “Heading into 2021, we are ideally positioned to leverage the successes of this difficult year and move into the next phase of our plan.”

Last year, the firm also snapped up a four-strong financial services team from HWL Ebsworth.
