Keypoint Law is a firm where women do well, with almost 40% of our partner-level lawyers being female.
In a recent Australian Financial Review article, Keypoint ranked #10 out of 50 of Australia’s biggest firms for the number of female partners, with 39% female partners, 7% greater than the industry average of 32%.
Earlier this year, Keypoint was shortlisted for the Women in Business Law Award’s Australian Firm of the Year, amongst some great global law firms.
The firm was also recognised as a finalist for the Women and Law Awards “Innovator of the Year” award.
An excerpt from the firm’s submission for these awards included a statement from Keypoint Law Consulting Principal, Penelope Pengilley:
“At Keypoint Law, I have always felt appreciated as who I am in the law with the skills, experience, intellectual rigor and care I bring to bear in my matters. There are no filters or overtones arising out of how high I am up the profit share ladder (and therefore the weight of my voice), the income I may bring to the firm or how many hours I am at my desk… I am assessed as the senior lawyer I am. It is incredibly liberating… I see this as very empowering of and supportive to women.”
At Keypoint, we recognise the challenges that women in law are facing. So, our firm has removed the outdated conventions which hold women back. We offer our partners a remuneration system which is 100% gender-neutral; and a model of legal practice with flexibility which is unparalleled for a national law firm.
By combining the strengths of a full-service national firm with transparency, decision-making control and complete flexibility, Keypoint presents the ideal innovation for women in law.
