Helen Kay

I'm an experienced business lawyer and am passionate about helping business owners avoid unnecessary risks by providing tailored commercial legal advice.

There is no 'One Size Fits All' - a template contract or a lawyer who doesn't take the time to get to know your business will not help solve your problem. I'll take the time to really understand your unique circumstances because I know that business owners rely on commercial lawyers to help them avoid unnecessary risks and, at the same time, expect that they understand their industry and the unique problems they face.

I have spent over 15 years implementing and supporting large Project Management Offices across multiple business sectors including banking, utilities, mining and higher education I am now utilising my management skills as the General Manager for Rise Legal.

I’m also husband to the very talented managing director Helen Kay. If Helen is the brains of the business, then I make up the beauty part of it. After working for big corporations for so long it’s extremely rewarding to work in the family business and assist the legal team in helping so many businesses survive and grow.

I have the pleasure of working under the supervision of Rise Legal’s managing director, Helen Kay, whilst in the first years of practice as a newly admitted lawyer. Some may find this strange, but I thoroughly enjoy reading and crafting Terms and Conditions.

I also enjoy helping clients with their trademarking and company structuring. I believe my drive to become a lawyer first stemmed from my childhood aspiration to one day go to work in a ‘lady suit’. I have a keen interest in commercial and business law and aim to focus my legal career around this area of law here at Rise Legal.

I was previously employed in the NSW Police Force. After completing my first year as a Police Officer, I knew my passion was law, however, didn't believe it to be within this area. I then decided to take the leap and study law to pursue a future career as a lawyer. I am currently completing my Bachelor of Laws, and whilst doing so have the opportunity of working with the amazing team at Rise Legal. This has been a great opportunity to get a good insight into the type of work I plan to pursue once I am admitted as a lawyer.
