Property Law

Just like you, the KKI Property team all share a passion and enthusiasm for all things ‘property’. We love that we deal with something tangible which we can see and feel. Nothing gives us a greater thrill than understanding our clients, building relationships with our clients and becoming a trusted advisor to our clients and referrers.

We believe that it is this shared passion and enthusiasm which sets us apart as one of Melbourne’s leading property law teams. Advising on some of Australia’s highest profile projects and transactions, we contribute to the success of transactions, no matter how large or complex. Whether you are a property developer, investor or financier, we will guide you through the maze of issues to produce great outcomes.
