KCL Law has specialised in property related matters since the firm’s inception in 1981. Over 40 years later, our Property practice has acted for a broad range of property and development clients — including multi-national property developers, private and public companies, family businesses and high-net-worth individuals — to establish a strong reputation for being one of the finest full-service property team’s in Victoria.

With previous experience working in large law firms, government and private industry, our property lawyers are commercially astute and have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of Australia’s and, in particular, Melbourne’s property market. We keep on top of the market trends, developments and changes so that we can impart our knowledge on to our clients.
