Kevin was called to the bar in 2007. Having specialised in costs litigation throughout his career, he quickly established himself as a heavyweight in all aspects of costs law. Kevin continues to command a busy practice, regularly instructed by both paying and receiving parties. Ranked in Chambers & Partners UK 2020 for his expertise in Costs Litigation, clients commented that Kevin is;

"Extremely knowledgeable, professional and thorough, he always ensures he makes contact before and after a hearing to discuss tactics and relay information" and that "Kevin is very amenable and is able to build a natural rapport with both his opponents and the judge. He does not overcomplicate when explaining issues and can cut right to the heart of a matter."

Acknowledged as “very quick to digest the issues” (Chambers & Partners UK 2015), clients find Kevin impressive in his ability to absorb and analyse details quickly and accurately. He boasts significant experience in matters of complex law and fact and his instructions frequently outweigh his year of call. In addition to his broader legal practice, Kevin’s experience as a law costs draftsman and for a large international firm of Solicitors prior to joining the bar enable him to provide first class service in cases where an appreciation of the broader commercial picture is invaluable.

Whilst meticulous in his preparation, Kevin’s affable style puts clients at ease and his practical, solution-focussed approach is refreshing and effective in equal measure. His combination of “excellent client care skills” (Legal 500 2020) and a “knowledge of costs which is laudable” (Legal 500 2018) make him a first class choice for any costs mediation.
