Leading Hunter law firm, Keystone Lawyers, says its integration of Keystone Conveyancing within the firm has paid dividends.
A year on from merging Keystone Conveyancing and Keystone Lawyers, and moving into its own larger premises, the Cooks Hill based firm is continuing to see strong client and revenue growth inside and outside of the region.
Founder and Director, Lou Stojanovski, says more builders and developers now see the benefits of the depth and integration of Keystone’s advice to their business success.
“When we had the two business names the perception was that we only did personal conveyancing and were separate organisations,” Lou said.
In light of that growth, Lou has appointed Helen Farrell as the Head of Keystone’s Property Division. Helen is a licensed Conveyancer with 16 years of experience in property law. Her earlier career saw her work in the complementary roles of real estate, property management and home lending and she has run her own business.
Lou said Helen’s skills were a perfect fit for the firm’s household conveyancing as well as its work in construction and commercial law for builders, developers and business property investors.
“Helen’s lived in the Hunter for 20 years too so she knows the region and has good relationships to assist local clients,” he said.
“She and her team can assist everyone from first home buyers and existing home owners whether they are buying land, off the plan or an existing home or apartment at auction or by private treaty.”
“They work on leases, high-end commercial acquisition, estate planning and administration of deceased estates.”
“Our divisions work seamlessly for clients such as builders and developers who need a range of legal support services from initial acquisition or assistance with joint ventures to construction contracts to sale and finalisation contracts and conveyancing.”
Keystone Lawyers has been operating for more than six years and specialises in the fields of construction, engineering, mining, commercial, development and property law. It was a finalist in last year’s Australasian Law Awards.
