Commenting on the move, Prath said “With the high calibre list of clients at KHQ, the reputation of the directors and principals and the fantastic workplace culture, bringing my team to KHQ was easy. I am really excited about the upside.”

KHQ Lawyers is a leading top-tier boutique commercial firm based in Melbourne. The firm’s practice areas are national in reach, and include corporate & commercial, workplace relations & safety, commercial property and private wealth, amongst others.

Managing director of KHQ Lawyers, David Kelly, said “We are delighted to have Prath and his team on board. Prath is a proven operator and his addition to the team adds substantial weight to our high-quality tax services.”

In addition to working closely with KHQ’s Private Wealth Group, Prath will co-lead the Tax & Structuring team with Jack Stuk, one of the country’s pre-eminent tax law practitioners.

Said Mr Stuk, “Prath is an outstanding commercial and tax practitioner and a welcome addition to help satisfy the growing demand for tax and commercial services which KHQ has experienced in recent years.”

It is exciting times for KHQ, having recently relocated to modern, custom-built offices at 600 Bourke Street, Melbourne. Said Mr Kelly, “Our spacious new facilities provide a cutting-edge, people-oriented working environment and will enhance the provision of our services to our clients and support KHQ’s strategic growth plans.”
