Tim Halstead, managing partner said: “We are delighted to welcome Kieran to the partnership and would like to congratulate him on his promotion. It is direct recognition of his talent and the hard work and dedication that he has put into serving our real estate client base over the last 16 years. Kieran’s expertise is a great asset to the firm and his promotion will further bolster and strengthen our commercial property team.

“Kieran is the ninth associate to be promoted to partner through the ‘Forward with Shulmans’ scheme. We’re very pleased that it is providing a clear framework for employees to rise through the firm and achieve their career goals, and we hope that Kieran’s journey with Shulmans, from paralegal to partner, will inspire others to do the same.”

Kieran, a Bingley resident and alumnus of St. Bede’s Grammar School, has risen through the ranks of the firm, having joined in 2003 as a paralegal in QCAS, Shulmans’ conveyancing division. He subsequently completed a training contract and qualified in commercial property, before becoming an associate seven years ago.

He deals with a wide range of matters for both single-asset and large portfolio clients, including investment sales and purchases; landlord and tenant work; and complex estate management. He works with some of the firm’s largest property and corporate clients, such as such as the Evans Property Group, Town Centre Securities and Edwin Woodhouse & Co. Recent project successes include the completion of a £20 million deal on a multi-let building in Leeds, as well as ongoing portfolio management work for a regenerated mill development in Farsley.

Kieran also provides specialist property and finance support to the healthcare and pharmaceutical sector and has a specialism in telecommunications work, acting for site owners on the grant and renewal of telecoms leases. He has been recognised for his expertise and was named ‘Next Generation Lawyer’ in 2018 and 2019 by The Legal 500 UK.
