Seasoned family and relationships practitioner joins Keypoint Law

Seasoned family and relationships practitioner Kristina Antoniades has joined Keypoint Law’s family law practice as a consulting principal.

Antoniades is a family law specialist accredited by the Law Institute of Victoria. She is also an accredited mediator and a family dispute resolution lawyer.

She focuses on LGBTI family and relationship matters such as donor and surrogacy agreements, and enjoys working on “challenging and complicated” parenting cases, the firm said. She has drafted complex agreements for both child support and property issues.

Antoniades has worked on matters involving the Hague Convention and the Family Court of Appeal. In 2018, the Law Institute of Victoria named her that year’s Accredited Specialist Achievement awardee.

She will be operating from Keypoint Law’s Melbourne office.

“We’re delighted to welcome Kristina to Keypoint Law. Kristina is highly regarded for her expertise in family and relationship matters, and her joining us is a wonderful development for our team in Melbourne, as well as our lawyers in Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra,” CEO Warren Kalinko said.

Antoniades expressed her eagerness to join the roster of a “collegial and cutting-edge law firm.”

“I am excited to be joining a firm that recognises their lawyers as individuals and in doing so, assists those lawyers to flourish,” she said.

Last month, Keypoint Law also welcomed privacy law expert Deidre Missingham to the Melbourne branch. Meanwhile, commercial and property lawyer Dave Cheng was appointed in late 2020 to boost the firm’s offering in Brisbane.
