Legal firm restructures

On Monday 20 May, a new legal practice, Hynes Legal, will begin.

Hynes Legal will focus and specialise in some of Queensland’s strongest industries – energy and resources, property (encompassing body corporate, strata, management rights, and aged care and retirement living) and intellectual property.

Additionally, Hynes Legal will continue to provide highly specialised workplace relations and health and safety advice to clients. Hynes Legal’s partners will include Rob Hynes, Angela Vidler, Frank Higginson, Julie McStay and Samantha Solomon.

“Hynes Legal will differentiate itself from other Queensland law firms through its focus on Queensland’s strongest industries, its provision of high level legal services and products, a pricing model that includes fixed and flexible fee arrangements, and empowering our people through a working environment that provides flexibility, promotes creativity and drives the delivery of high level legal services.

“The new Hynes Legal business model will be based on developing and implementing actual operational efficiencies across the firm. It will enable the firm to deliver the same excellence in service while passing savings onto clients. We will be able to effectively reduce our operating costs by relocating to new premises, the marketing and sale of high level legal products and services, and through other operational efficiencies, such as using cloud computing and back-end support that is based in the Philippines which significantly reduces traditional law firm overheads,” according to Mr Higginson.

“Hynes Legal will offer traditional legal advice, off the shelf legal products or bespoke, technology-driven legal products designed for a client’s needs. The new firm’s investment in and development of new technology will enable it to deliver high quality legal service with greater delivery and pricing flexibility.”

“Our other three partners will be moving to other firms, with Warren Jiear moving to Piper Alderman, Bill Singleton moving to HWL Ebsworth and Warwick Walsh moving to McCullough Robertson.”
The Hynes Lawyers brand will cease operations in late May.
