John Kain

Founder and Managing Director

John is the founder and Managing Director of Kain Lawyers.

He has over 25 years’ experience in corporate advisory, private equity, capital markets (in listed and unlisted companies and trusts) and mergers and acquisitions.  His experience in advising public and private companies and investment funds has seen him consistently ranked by peers and clients as one of South Australia’s leading corporate lawyers.

John is a Fellow of the AICD and has served on a number of boards, including as Chairman of an ASX300 company, a director of public charitable trusts, as chairman of a Commonwealth government advisory panel and as director of a number of private companies.

John has also founded or co-founded seven businesses – including Kain Lawyers, the Kain Foundation and two ASX listed companies.

John believes that these board and commercial roles keep his commercial skills honed. That and his market-leading skills in corporate law give him the rare ability to view and apply the law through a commercial lens.
