King Tan and Elizabeth Burnheim (both pictured) have joined Keypoint as consulting principals, having both come over from Coleman Greig’s taxation and superannuation team.

The news follows the appointment of five other consulting principals in the last two months: boutique firm partner Nyree Deirmendjian in mid-April, commercial litigation professional Stephen D’Emilio in early April, “succession nerd” Michele Davis in early March, film, television and digital games expert Kate Hynes in late February, and senior insurance litigation lawyer Colin Hall in mid-February.


Mr Tan was formerly a team leader at Coleman Greig, and prior to that role, he was with King & Wood Mallesons and KPMG. He has, the firm said in a statement, “extensive experience in federal and state taxes, and also practises in the areas of trust law, superannuation law and succession planning. He has acted for a range of clients, including multinational and listed companies, professional advisers (particularly, accountants and financial planners) and high-net-wealth family groups.

Ms Burnheim was formerly a senior associate at Coleman Greig, and prior to that role, she was with Argyle Lawyers. She practises in the areas of estate planning, taxation, superannuation and trusts and works with high-net-worth family groups through complex estate planning and superannuation issues.

Speaking about the appointments, Keypoint chief executive Warren Kalinko said: “King’s experience, ranging from top-tier legal experience and big-four accounting, to private clients’ experience, bring[s] tremendous additional skills and experience to our firm. Elizabeth’s experience dealing with niche taxation matters in the SME market, and for private clients, is a skill set the firm is very excited to extend to our clients.

“The pair join Keypoint with a complementary skill set, further developing our tax law offering across the firm.”

The pair added: “We are very excited to be joining the innovative Keypoint Law and are thrilled with the opportunity to flexibly service our clients. We look forward to contributing to the firm, particularly in working with our colleagues to provide tailored and holistic legal service to clients.”

Mr Tan and Ms Burnheim commence at Keypoint today (Friday, 2 June).
