A high-calibre practitioner with an excellent reputation and a top client base, Keir succeeded Christopher Murray as Kingsley Napley’s senior partner in May 2013 after 26 years at the Farringdon-based firm. Unlike most senior partners, the warm and bright solicitor is hardly winding down. She splits her executive and legal roles 50-50, specialising in major and complex HNW financial and children’s cases – often on a cross-border basis.
Clients appreciate the qualified collaborative lawyer’s calm and collected manner, as one wrote to her: ‘Worth every penny… Thanks again for every little bit of sympathy and patient advice. I maintain my sanity in no small part because of your efforts on my behalf.’
A passionate horseracing fan in her spare time, she is also a breeder herself.
