What our clients are saying about Kate Kenneally
Client Testimonial

We found Kate to be highly professional yet down to earth, grasping the matter quickly and able to cut through efficiently. She doesn’t hide behind legal speak making her relatable and easy to get along with. We will continue to badger her….

Client Testimonial

I appreciate what Ms Kate Kenneally and yourself have done for me. It was a real privilege to have you both on my case, and I felt to be in very good and competent hands the whole time. Should ever the opportunity arise, my sister…and myself would like to recommend you to others who may require your excellent services.

Client Testimonial

We worked closely with Kate as we were having terrible delays in getting our Licence to alter, delay after delay. With great skill and patience , Kate helped us navigate the issues and calmly and professionally made us focus on the main issues and finally secured the LTA for us. At all stages she was responsive and diligent. Would be very happy to use Kate again !

Client Testimonial

I have been helped by Kate Keneally for over two years during very difficult times with a rogue tenant situation that resulted in extended litigation against the tenant, their counsel as well as my previous solicitors. Hanne won all cases for us and Kate was a significant support during the whole process, with very sage advice (especially from one so young) and encouragement to keep going during dark days. There is an effective support team as well, so I highly recommend Hanne & Co for property and professional indemnity litigation.

Client Testimonial

Hanne & Co’s Kate helped me very effectively with a difficult situation where a neighbor tried to pin on me damage to their property that I had nothing to do with. Thank you Kate!
