For over 25 years we have been providing expert legal and proactive strategic advice for some of Melbourne’s most successful property developers, entrepreneurs and business people. Underpinning this success and what really sets us apart from other firms, is the way we work with our clients.

Our Journey

Kalus Kenny was established in 1993 by Henry Kalus and Jonathan Kenny to practice in the areas of property, commercial law and dispute resolution.

We understood that clients no longer wanted a traditional law firm approach – from the start we have embraced a forward thinking no nonsense approach to help our clients meet their business challenges.

In March 2013, we further strengthened our core practice areas when Kalus Kenny merged with Burchartz Intelex to become Kalus Kenny Intelex. Sven Burchartz brought shared values, large firm experience and additional capacity to deliver what our clients need.

The partners and staff constantly distinguish the firm by a common commitment to strong value systems, absolute integrity, high levels of responsibility, technical excellence, and a commitment to being truly valuable.

Just as our firm has grown, so too have our clients.  Particularly as our clients spread their reach globally, we realised that we needed lawyers on the ground throughout the world to assist with local legal expertise.  We have recently joined the International Lawyers Network (ILN), a network of high-quality mid-size law firms with a presence in 67 countries. Working with like-minded and quality legal practices, we are confident that our clients will benefit from the reach, capability and depth of expertise of ILN members.

From 2 people in 1993 to 40 and growing, no transaction or dispute is too large or complex for Kalus Kenny Intelex.
