Liam is a trainee solicitor at Kingsley Napley and is currently in his fourth seat in the Criminal litigation team.

 

Liam's previous seats were with the Dispute Resolution team; the Family and Divorce team, supporting them with all aspects of financial and private law children work; and the Private Client team.

Liam joined Kingsley Napley in October 2015 as a paralegal in the Family team. He was promoted to legal assistant and offered a training contract with the firm in 2018.

Prior to commencing his training contract, Liam assisted partners and associates in the Family team to run a range of cases from complex financial remedy litigation to urgent non-molestation matters. He was responsible for preparing court documents and correspondence; liaising with clients, counsel and experts; dealing with intricate financial disclosure and researching points of law. Liam regularly attended client meetings, conferences with counsel and court hearings in the work he undertook and received outstanding feedback from both clients and counsel.

Clients of Kingsley Napley often require advice from different practice areas and Liam coordinated this with the firm’s other teams where it was required. For example, Liam worked with the Dispute Resolution team to obtain an injunction against the misuse of a client’s private information, and assisted the Criminal Litigation team to advise a client on a blackmail matter.

Liam has an LLB (Hons) in Law from the University of Nottingham and completed an international secondment in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He subsequently achieved a Distinction in the MSc Law, Business and Management, incorporating the Legal Practice Course, from the University of Law.

In addition to completing vacation schemes at Browne Jacobson LLP and Ashfords LLP in Corporate and Business Risk seats, Liam gained experience of acting on Private Client matters through placements in regional firms.
