Areas of Practice

Personal Injury
My firm McKeowns is recognised as a leading Personal Injury practice within Northern Ireland. Our approach to handling claims has been centred entirely on caring for clients. From the moment of instruction until the settlement of claim and payment of damages, each of our clients embarks upon and completes a journey accompanied by a member of our talented and experienced Personal Injury Team. Along the way, we offer friendly advice and support and quite often help identify solutions for clients to help alleviate their suffering. No stone is left unturned in achieving the best result possible.

Conveyancing
Clients involved in property transactions require expert advice tailored specifically to their circumstances. In particular, they require their solicitor to act in a timely and efficient manner in order to ensure the successful completion of their sale or purchase.
We help our clients achieve these objectives at competitive rates by going above and beyond expectations in the delivery of our advice and professional services. We are assisted in this with the use of the latest technology in our practice.

Employment
The workplace has in some ways become a battlefield for individuals who find themselves at odds with employers and fellow employees.
• Disciplinary action
• Unfair Dismissal
• Disability, Race, Age or Sex Discrimination
• Redundancy
• Harassment and Bullying
We assist employers through advice and assistance to prepare for recruitment, draft contracts of employment, general guidance and handling of disciplinary procedures, providing representation at tribunals if required.
We assist employees through advice on all aspects of their employment. This can include dealing with disciplinary procedures, presenting and negotiating claims at the Employment Tribunal

We also work closely with all other professionals such as financial advisers and accountants to ensure that our clients are fully informed and are able to determine the best way forward for them having regard to their own particular circumstances.

Civil Litigation
It can be daunting for any individual or business having to deal with a dispute. We can help make the experience much less intimidating through our well-practised approach to dealing with our clients' needs and expectations. Steering them to satisfactory outcomes. Our litigation team will hit the ground running upon instruction. They possess utmost ability to communicate and negotiate with all parties concerned.

Our implementation and use of the latest technology also enhances their leading edge approach to deliver the best experience for our clients.
