Helen Kay

About

I am an experienced business lawyer with extensive legal experience thanks to working within top tier firms, running my own legal practice, and heading up various commercial law teams over the years.

I have assisted countless businesses across many different industry sectors with their commercial legal agreements, including commercial leases, buying and selling businesses and providing general contractual advice. I love what I do and am looking forward to helping you and your business!

“Thank you Helen Kay for such fantastic and quick service. I feel much more comfortable now that my contracts are in order. I feel like I have more control if things ever go wrong. Helen made it such and quick and easy process, she took care of everything and made sure I was happy with the outcome. I took a unit of commercial law at university but my knowledge and experience is nothing in comparison to Helen's. Thank you again!!”
Matt Heywood - Heytech IT
"Helen was able to provide feedback on areas I hadn't thought of, exceeded my time expectations for works to be completed and continually communicated with me throughout the process. In an area of law where it has been typically found that her colleagues are less so socially inclined (while exceeding clever), it was both astonishing and refreshing that Helen's attention to detail is not only top notch, but she was a joy to deal with as a human as well. Looks like I just found my new lifelong commercial legal partner. If you're in need of a legal service in Helen or her team's realm, close the book - You just found a star."

I originally found Helen Kay online, through a Facebook business group if I recall correctly. We engaged Rise Legal to revise some contracts and customer-facing documents to ensure we had adequately cove red any likely eventualities. Helen and her team have provided consistently excellent service, they are friendly and it’s actually fun talking to our lawyers, which is very unusual in my experience! They are really proactive and suggest things we haven’t thought of without it being a sales pitch to generate more business, which is a refreshing experience. I am delighted with the entire Rise Legal team for their continued guidance in complicated legal matters and the personal touch that they bring to every engagement. It is my great pleasure to recommend Helen Kay and her team to any business owner looking for legal help, knowing that it will reflect well upon me due to the exemplary service anyone wo uses them will experience.

I was recommended to Rise Legal and after using them I will now recommend them to others myself. I engaged them to trademark a name for my business and throughout the process the entire team were professional, understanding and extremely efficient. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Rise Legal and I highly recommend them to anyone.

Helen, of Rise Legal, has been such a dream to work with. Not only did she prepare my contract quickly, but her customer service and attention to quality work is second to none. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

I was thrilled with my experience with Rise Legal getting an agreement created for my migration law agency. Managing Director Helen Kay became known to me through mutual connections and I knew her as someone who "lives and breathes Contract Law". I was very interested to work with Helen regardless, but I was also pleasantly blown away by her processes, professionalism, and quality of output. From start to finish, Helen, Lucy, and the team at Rise Legal were a pleasure to deal with and all steps were seamless and purposeful. I look forward to returning for their services when needed in the future. I can talk from personal experience that you should look no further than Rise Legal for your contract law matters.

Working with Helen at Rise Legal well exceeded my expectations! She was very friendly, efficient, professional and made what seemed like an overwhelming task to me, incredibly easy. The Terms & Conditions she created were legally robust yet clear and uncomplicated, and gave me a real sense of security moving forward in my business. For the service I received I felt the price was extremely reasonable. Highly recommend.

We started working with Helen early 2020. We find her knowledge and professionalism of the highest quality. As a small business owner working in the commercial sector we work in larger project spheres and need a lawyer who has the knowledge and understanding of the construction industry. Helen is able to explain terminology and clauses in plain English for us to understand and ensures that we are well protected legally. We cant praise Helen highly enough!!!

"I'm a Tradie and the leader of the best bunch of plumbers on the Gold Coast. When I needed upgrades to our Business T&C's, Privacy Policy and other docs, I turned to Rise Legal. The process was simple and I had documents created that were specific to my business. Helen was very generous with her time and knowledge. To have minor changes made to the documents as more ideas presented was not a problem either. I really felt that I had found "my" lawyer who was invested in helping me at last...We've even got an audit planned to make sure that my business is compliant from all perspectives."

Dane the owner of Gold Coast Plumbing Company

"I chose Helen at Rise Legal because she is first and foremost, a caring, helpful 'person'. It's been my experience that this is a rare commodity in the legal profession. Helen has assisted with agreement documents, terms and conditions, trademarking and general advice and is an absolute gun with her ability and knowledge. I refer all my own clients to Helen now without hesitation. I cannot recommend Rise Legal highly enough. Thanks for the amazing client experience!"
