Brisbane’s pre-eminent construction law firm, Helix Legal, has expanded its presence in Queensland by opening a Gold Coast office.

Focusing specifically on the Queensland construction landscape and related industries, Helix Legal now has four (4) offices in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Cairns and Townsville.

Helix Legal’s CEO, Janelle Kerrisk, said that “this is an important milestone for the firm as having a local presence now allows delivery of services tailored for the strong Gold Coast market”.

“At Helix we recognise that in order to succeed as a law firm of the future a different approach to the traditional model is needed.  I am excited by what the team is achieving in developing risk-based, innovative commercial contract models backed by the technology developed by Helix and I am thrilled to invest in our clients on the Gold Coast,” said Ms Kerrisk.

Helix Legal’s Director, Jonathan Miliszewski (pictured) has been appointed to lead the Gold Coast office and brings a wealth of experience to the firm’s contract negotiation, adjudication and litigation practice areas.

Mr Miliszewski leads the Southeast Queensland Dispute Resolution team offering commercially focused expertise to Helix clients regarding disputes arising from their construction contracts.

“Over the last 15 years, I have seen dramatic changes to the Gold Coast landscape brought about by tenacious, hard-working developers, builders and subcontractors. Being a permanent part of the vibrant Gold Coast construction market allows Helix Legal to provide real-time advice on the unique aspects of managing commercial relationships in this very special part of SEQ,” said Mr Miliszewski.

Founded in 2016 by Janelle Kerrisk and Dayna Gilbert, Helix Legal has grown exponentially since its inception now employing more than 20 legal specialists and working with Helix Compliance which provides forensic financial investigations.

The firm has not only grown its resources in this time but has curated a team of experienced and well-placed industry professionals Ms Kerrisk said.

“Helix Legal is a part of the Helix group of companies dedicated to better project outcomes, with a proven track record of delivering innovative and high-quality solutions to clients across the construction and property industries. With the establishment of the Gold Coast dedicated office, the business is poised for continued growth and client success in the years ahead.”
