Keypoint boosts technology, intellectual property and entertainment practices with new appointment

-

Leading innovative firm Keypoint Law has boosted its technology, intellectual property and entertainment practices with the appointment of Paul Noonan, who joins the firm as a Consulting Principal in Melbourne from the partnership of Thomson Geer.

Paul is a highly regarded intellectual property, technology and entertainment lawyer. He has over 20 years’ experience assisting clients with contracting and dispute resolution in the areas of technology, general procurement, intellectual property and entertainment. He also assists clients with privacy, data security, consumer law and other compliance issues.

Paul has been recognised by his peers in Best Lawyers in Australia in the areas of Entertainment Law, Information Technology Law, Intellectual Property Law & Privacy, and Data Security Law, and has been recognised as a recommended Technology, Media & Telecommunications Lawyer (Victoria) in Doyle’s Guide 2018.

Speaking of Paul’s appointment, Keypoint CEO Warren Kalinko said:

“Paul has a fantastic reputation among his peers and brings a wealth of expertise to our firm. His broad experience and technical excellence make him a perfect fit for us and will undoubtably further deepen our existing technology, intellectual property and entertainment capabilities. I am delighted to welcome Paul to Keypoint”.

Commenting on joining Keypoint, Paul said:

“I’m very excited about joining Keypoint. I was looking for more flexibility with my practice than a traditional law firm could accommodate, and the freedom to do other things beyond “lawyering”. Keypoint has given me that. I’m already experiencing superb back office support with billing, marketing, precedents and compliance. In addition, Keypoint gives me a support network of senior colleagues that I know I would miss if I were a sole practitioner”.

In the past year Keypoint has recruited a number of talented senior lawyers from some of Australia’s leading firms, a pivotal shift that has seen Keypoint transform from a ‘disruptive start-up’ to fast-growing award-winning law firm.

In 2018, the firm picked up the Boutique Law Firm of the Year award in the Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards.
