The founder of a leading Queensland commercial litigation law firm is set to step down from key positions but still play a role at the business.

Kyle Kimball, of Sajen Legan, will no longer be director and litigator and will instead be the firm’s strategic advisor.

Mr Kimball established himself as a formidable presence in commercial litigation and insolvency from the late 1980s.

His expertise and strategic acumen led him to found Kimball Wood Solicitors in 1997, which evolved into Sajen Legal.

Under his leadership, Sajen Legal has become one of the most respected commercial litigation, insolvency, and business law firms across the region.

His innovative approach to legal practice – particularly his introduction of fixed fee retainers – has changed how clients engage with legal services, fostering transparency and trust. This approach enhanced client relationships and set a new standard in legal practice.

Mr Kimball said he looked forward to the next phase of his life.

“As I transition away from the rigours of daily litigation and firm management, I am excited to tackle my new role as strategic advisor,” he said.

“However, after nearly four decades of running a successful law practice, I am looking forward to getting a balance back in my life that allows me to spend more time with my wife and children, who are now all young adults.”

Tim Borham and Vincent Berry are poised to lead Sajen Legal into its next chapter.

The seasoned lawyers bring a blend of innovative thinking and experience.

Mr Borham lauded Mr Kimball.

“Kyle has been an incredible mentor and leader, and it’s an honour to build on his legacy,” Mr Borham said,” he said.

“His unwavering commitment to professionalism, innovation and fighting hard for our clients has earned Sajen Legal a reputation of which we are proud and we will continue that legacy into the future.

“As we take the helm, our focus will be on expanding our practice areas and integrating more cutting-edge technology to enhance our legal services.”

Mr Berry, who has also earned the reputation of a fierce and capable litigator, said the firm was in good hands.

“Our vision is to enhance the agility of Sajen Legal in responding to the changing needs of our clients,” he said.

“We plan to deepen our commitment to maintaining the many valuable relationships the firm has built over its almost 30 years of operation.

“Kyle’s ongoing guidance as strategic advisor will be invaluable as we navigate these exciting developments and we are delighted he will stay involved as strategic advisor and help us to remain a leading commercial and litigation law firm, providing advice and mentoring the team as we continue to grow and expand,” he said.
