JOHN KELLY John Kelly's LinkedIn profile

P: (03) 9225 7654
M: 0412 360 174
E: johnkelly@foleys.com.au

Chief Executive Officer of Foley's List, John Kelly grew up in a family entrenched in the traditions of the law. John was admitted to practice as a solicitor in 1974, and by 1978 was awarded the prestigious Solicitor's Prize. With extensive experience in litigation and non-litigious matters, John has always remained keen to improve the governance of the profession, hence his appointment to the Law Institute Council in 1981. He held the position of President in 1989 - 90. During this period, his interest extended beyond the law to include management and marketing best practice within the profession. It was this interest that drew him to the position of Head Clerk at Foley's List in 1994.

His current position oversees all areas of specialty - being a lawyer, he acknowledges and understands issues from both the barrister's and the solicitor's point of view.

While his hobby is golf, John remains rather sage, and secretive about his progress on the green.
