As part of a strategic expansion of its service offering, Brisbane commercial law firm Redchip Lawyers has acquired Hynes Legal, with a partner moving to Redchip to lead its new strata law practice.

Hynes Legal will continue to trade under its current name and branding, operating as a wholly owned subsidiary of Redchip Lawyers. The acquisition will add strata, body corporate and management rights expertise to Redchip’s existing practices in commercial law, property, litigation and succession planning.

Hynes Legal director and partner Frank Higginson (pictured), who will run the Redchip strata law practice, said the two firms had referred work to each other for the past 10 years, and the acquisition was a logical extension of that close working relationship.

“Hynes and Redchip offer complementary services in the commercial and strata sectors. Hynes coming under the Redchip umbrella opens up growth opportunities for the combined businesses and greater service for our clients,” he said.

“It makes sound commercial sense to build on the longstanding referral relationship that exists between the firms.”

Redchip director Robert Lalor said bringing the Hynes business under Redchip ownership is part of a mutually beneficial growth strategy that will bolster the firm’s offering to the market, introduce new services to existing clients, and combine expertise and resources.

“This is an exciting growth opportunity for Redchip, our people and our clients,” he said.

“Introducing this new arm of the business in body corporate and strata management rights is an offer that makes sense for our existing commercial, property and dispute resolution services.”

The combined firms will have a staff of 50 people.
