About Helen

"You're not like a typical lawyer" - I hear that all the time. I really do care about my clients and go out of my way to help them.

I'm a business owner too, so I get it - it can be a tough gig! You need to work on your business but get stuck working in it... this is where I can swoop in and help you.

From start up to sale, I help business owners complete their commercial contracts so they can get on and run their business. Oh, and I enjoy it as well!

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.

Looking forward to getting to know you and your business!

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!!!

Rise Legal was recommended to us to meet our company requirements for expert legal services. We have previously used a large top tier legal firm and by comparison we have found Rise Legal to be affordable and keenly focused on our requirements. Helen has been very easy to deal with and she has taken the time with each project to fully understand our requirements and expertly translate these into a legal framework. Rise Legal has successfully completed legal work for us in the areas of commercial supplier contracts, commercial premises lease and corporate restructuring.

Helen was very helpful and informative from first contact. Helen helped our company with chasing outstanding debt. We had a great result within one week of action being taken. I would recommend Helen's fast and efficient service.

I decided to ask Helen and Rise Legal for assistance purely because of the care-factor that came along with their incredible insight on what I needed for my new sole trading business. Helen truly cares and wants the best for my business. She also has such amazing insight to ensure that my personal assets and business are protected. Which to me, makes my life so much easier. I feel comfortable and at ease working with Helen because I know I am in good hands.

I met Helen at Rise Legal through mutual contacts and had asked her to help me with proper employment contracts and T's & C's tailored to suit my business. Helen has always seemed to underpromise and overdeliver. She has always been very honest, upfront and taught me many things I never new with regards to business laws and regulations. Thanks to Helen I can continue to grow my business even further. I am very grateful and lucky to have someone like Helen on my side and I will always highly recommend her!! Peter

“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!!”

"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 deal with a lot of legal firms for my Investment Property Clients. The informative posts and discussions I see have given me great confidence that I can recommend Rise Legal and be sure my clients are being respected and given the personal advice that benefits them first!

"Helen was recommended to me because she specialises in Trademark & Commercial laws. I found her wealth of knowledge extremely helpful and valuable to me and my business, especially during this pandemic. Her professionalism and customer service was above and beyond and, she was very thorough and extremely prompt in helping with me. I would very highly recommend Helen and her services she provides."
