We are passionate about driving business momentum. This includes powering our own business forward to expand our capacity and capabilities to service you, our clients and wider network.

We are pleased to share that Redchip has acquired Queensland’s leading specialist strata and body corporate law firm, Hynes Legal. This acquisition adds new, complementary services to our toolkit with a market-leading service provider, allowing us to more broadly service our focus markets.


Brisbane commercial law firm Redchip Lawyers has acquired Queensland’s leading strata law practice Hynes Legal in a strategic expansion of its service offering.

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 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. 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 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. 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.
