Fast-growing and award-winning law firm Keypoint Law has bolstered its employment capabilities with the appointment of Sarah Jones as a Consulting Principal in Sydney. Sarah joins the firm from the partnership of Hicksons Lawyers, where she led the Workplace Relations & Safety team.

A senior lawyer with nearly 30 years’ experience, Sarah is highly regarded for her expertise in the areas of employment law and work health and safety. She acts as a trusted advisor for clients of all sizes across a range of industries, including individuals, SMEs, large corporations and government agencies.

Sarah is recognised as a standout in her field, having been acknowledged by ‘Best Lawyers in Australia’ for her expertise in occupational health and safety law.

Commenting on Sarah’s appointment, Keypoint’s CEO Warren Kalinko said:

“Sarah brings great experience to our firm that will further enhance our workplace practice, particularly in the area of work health and safety. Sarah’s in-depth expertise, exceptional technical skills and collaborative approach means she is perfectly placed to deliver real value to our clients. I am delighted to welcome her to Keypoint.”

Commenting on her decision to join the firm, Sarah said:

“I am excited by the opportunity to concentrate on what I enjoy doing most, which is solving my clients’ problems, achieving pragmatic outcomes and strengthening the long-lasting relationships I have developed over my career. By joining Keypoint I will also gain the freedom to practise law in a way that isn’t possible in a traditional law firm. I am delighted to join the Keypoint team”.

Sarah’s appointment comes at a time where Keypoint continues to expand its client offering with the addition of highly regarded senior lawyers, including former partners of Allens, Baker McKenzie, EY and Thomson Geer. In June 2019, the Australian Financial Review’s Law Partnership Survey revealed that Keypoint ranks in the top 5 Australia-wide for partner-level growth. Over the past year, the firm has bolstered its ranks with the appointment of 13 Consulting Principals.
