By Jerome Doraisamy|11 May 2020

Mid-tier firm Keypoint Law has appointed a senior lawyer to its executive team as part of its growth strategy in Melbourne.

Kim Adey has been hired by Keypoint, joining from global firm Fragomen, to serve in the general counsel function, assist the firm’s growth in terms of client attraction and partner recruitment, and aid corporate development. 

Ms Adey’s appointment brings the firm’s Melbourne team to 12 principal-level lawyers, “with further appointments in Melbourne to be announced soon”, the firm said.

Speaking about the appointment, Keypoint CEO Warren Kalinko said: “Kim brings to the role a fantastic combination of expertise and experience. Her decade of being a client-facing private practice solicitor, her subsequent GC experience, and her deep understanding of how large law firms operate, position her superbly for this role”.


Ms Adey noted: “I am excited about taking on this new role at such an important time in Keypoint’s growth.”

“I’m looking forward to working closely with the consulting principals and the Keypoint team to capitalise on the firm’s existing strengths and to build on the opportunities for future expansion in Melbourne,” she said.

Over the course of her career, Ms Adey has worked for Blake Dawson (now Ashurst), Freehills (now HSF), Australian Government Solicitor, DLA Phillips Fox (now DLA Piper) and Fragomen.
