Kieran is an employment and equality law specialist, recognised as an “up and coming” practitioner in Chambers & Partners UK Bar 2022 and a “rising star” in Legal 500 2022. He practises across the full range of employment law matters, in both the statutory and business protection spheres, acting for a wide range of clients across various sectors. He has particular experience in complex discrimination cases and other multi-day Tribunal matters engaging technical points of law. Examples of Kieran’s recent work can be found under the tabs on the right.

Kieran is praised for his black-letter legal ability, but also his ‘big picture’ approach and understanding of the important commercial factors at play in a particular dispute. He is commended as being “exceptional on his feet” and “an absolute delight to work with … extremely client friendly, down to earth and approachable”.

Further client comments on Kieran’s work include:

  • “He had a lovely manner with the tribunal, read them well and showed an ability far beyond his number of years call might suggest”.
  • “…incredibly thorough, very smart and extremely responsive to me as an instructing solicitor”.
  • “He is tactful and patient with sensitive lay clients and inspires confidence with professional clients”.

Kieran has completed secondments in the employment departments of two top-tier law firms and so is alive to the pressures that solicitors face in their day-to-day work. During these secondments, Kieran gained particular experience in working with financial services clients, clients in the education sector (including cases involving safeguarding issues), partners and partnerships, and senior executives.

Kieran read Law at the University of Cambridge, graduating in 2014 with First Class Honours. Prior to coming to the Bar, he spent a year working at the Law Commission conducting research into property law reform. He is co-author of a chapter of Bloomsbury Professional’s Termination of Employment, focusing on protection of business interests on termination of employment.

Having grown up in Edinburgh, Kieran actively welcomes instructions to appear in the Employment Tribunals in Scotland as well as in England and Wales. He has experience at both preliminary hearing and full merits hearing stages in proceedings in Scotland.
