Keystone Law continues with its international roll-out with the launch of its operations in Australia. The head office will be in Sydney although the firm’s focus will be nationwide.

Keystone’s recruitment campaign will begin on Friday, 1st November with a series of advertisements in both on-line and conventional media, sponsorship of legal events and a concerted public relations campaign. The intention is to attract an initial team of 25 senior solicitors before client work commences in March 2014. Thereafter the firm plans to recruit an additional 50 solicitors over the next two years. Support staff will be the subject of separate initiatives.

Keystone’s launch follows over three years of intense research and analysis of the Australian market to ascertain the viability of its dispersed business model in this jurisdiction. Logistical aspects of Keystone’s launch will be handled by Sydney-based business consultant, Lucas Fuller, who has been working on this project over the previous three years. Announcements as to Keystone’s Australian-based senior management, including its Managing Partner, will be forthcoming shortly.

James Knight, Keystone’s Managing Director, says:“Considering how similar our two legal systems are, it’s probably not that surprising that what Keystone has to offer looks like it will be just as attractive in Australia as it has proved to be in the UK. At the end of the day, clients are always happy to get better service and better value and most senior lawyers crave more autonomy but more support. After focusing on the Australian market for such a long time, we are delighted to be now in a position to move forward”. If what Keystone has to offer sounds interesting to you, please email us at so we may exchange further information. Where synergies exist, we will invite you to meet at our offices in Sydney. Absolute confidentiality is assured.
