Hynes Legal under Redchip umbrella

Brisbane commercial law firm Redchip Lawyers has acquired Queensland strata law practice Hynes Legal in a strategic expansion.

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 will continue to trade under its current name and branding, operating as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Redchip Lawyers.

Redchip director Robert Lalor said bringing the Hynes business under Redchip ownership was part of a mutually beneficial growth strategy that would 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. 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,” Mr Lalor said.

Frank Higginson of Hynes Legal said the two firms had referred work to each other for the past decade, 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. It makes sound commercial sense to build on the long-standing referral relationship that exists between the firms,” Mr Higginson said.


The acquisition is underpinned by the firms’ close cultural alignment and their mission to put client service at the forefront.

The combined firms will have a staff of 50 people.
