With offices located in Townsville and Brisbane, Bellco Law has been at the forefront of legal practice in Queensland since its establishment in 2015. Now, in a year of growth, the firm has recently welcomed renowned private solicitor and prominent Townsville local, Mr Tim McKee OAM to the team, who brings with him almost forty years’ experience and insight in the legal sector.
Tim, who previously ran his own law practice, has been a solicitor in Townsville since 1983, and says he is thrilled to have joined a young and progressive firm in a role which still enables him time to pursue his service and charitable interests as a member of the Rotary
Club of Townsville.
“I have been a solicitor in private practice for 39 years, all of them in Townsville, where I’ve had the privilege to help hundreds of people with their legal needs continuously over that time,” explains Tim.
“I had previously worked on several legal matters with Bellco Law, and the team impressed me with their efficiency, care for clients and their practical approach to problem solving.
“I am very pleased to be part of this firm and to be able to contribute to its success with the experience and knowledge I have gained from my time in the legal profession in the North.”
In his new role as Special Counsel, Tim will provide Bellco’s clients with timely and practical advice in the areas of small business, commercial and rural property and business and estate planning.
“I still relish the challenge of legal work and with the help of Bellco support staff, I will continue to provide the best care I can for the legal needs of my clients, both new and old,” continues Tim.
“I also aim, through both mentoring and by example, to imbue the young lawyers at Bellco with the need to ensure client care is always their paramount consideration in legal practise.”
Bellco partners, Shaun Campbell and Melanie Costi, say Tim’s addition to the team will play a vital role in growing the firm and mentoring their younger staff members; something Tim is very much embracing.
“It has been an absolute pleasure to have a lawyer of Tim McKee’s calibre and standing on board with us at Bellco Law,” says Shaun.
“Tim brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in commercial and property law.
“He is very well known and respected in the Townsville Community, and we look forward to Tim sharing his wisdom and experience with us and helping us to train our young staff.”
