Experience

In his work on child abuse compensation claims, Kieran combines a friendly and sympathetic listening ear with the ability to tackle complex legal challenges. Kieran is based at our Wakefield office and has worked with victims of abuse from all over the Yorkshire region, as well as wider afield.

He has recently worked as part of a team that was coordinating a large group of cases against Leeds City Council and Bradford City Council. These cases arose following sexual and physical abuse that took place at various homes in the 1960’s to 1980’s including Whinmoor, Shadwell, Thorpe Arch and Tong Park. Kieran and his colleagues have settled many cases for compensation against the Council and continue to represent clients for such claims. Kieran worked closely with West Yorkshire Police to bring about criminal charges. The cases are still being investigated by the Police.

Before joining Switalskis, Kieran was part of a team that was nominated for team of the year at the 2013 Eclipse Proclaim Awards. This award recognises excellence in the wider field of personal injury.
