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!

I recently engaged Helen from Rise Legal to help me with my new business registration and to draw up a contract of works. Helen went above and beyond and helped me develop other documentation including quotes and invoices, and has been available for ongoing support ever since. Very professional, extremely knowledgeable and an all round great person to deal with. Money well spent and I'll be staying in touch with Helen for all my legal needs throughout the operation of my business.

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!

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.

“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."
