Testimonials

Ms H, Essex

"Kiren’s knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail are first class. From our first meeting I knew she was the solicitor I needed to help guide me through my divorce. Kiren always explains the options available to me, talking through the pros and cons of each and keeping me updated as each stage progresses. I have no problem recommending her legal services and have indeed already done so."

Ms S, Essex

"I have found being supported by Kiren during my divorce to be a very positive experience. I was terrified of speaking with a solicitor but I found Kiren down to earth and very good at her job. She responded to my requests quickly and was able to answer my queries. I also felt she was happy to clarify anything I did not understand. Kiren has made this difficult process bearable. Kiren I thank you sincerely."

Ms C, Essex

"I would like to thank Kiren for her great professional service. It was one of the most stressful and emotional journeys of my life and I would like to thank her for making it as smooth as possible with ongoing support and service."

Ms R, Essex

"Kiren supported me through my child care matters. I felt confident with both my first and second hearing as everything was dealt with in a timely manner with the utmost professionalism and sensitivity. I had no doubt that she had the experience required for my case, providing me with straight talking expert advice in a language that made sense to me. Always presenting me with my options and clarity on the risks and obstacles I may face depending on the route I wished to take. After every phone conversation, however negative it may have seemed, I always felt positive and ready to fight. With Kiren's support and expertise through a very difficult and stressful time, I got the result I had hoped for and if I hadn't, I still would have felt confident that we gave it our best shot."

Kiren Dhillon


Kiren is a Senior Associate and a member of our Family Law Department. Kiren qualified as a Solicitor in 2010.

Kiren's expertise includes:

Kiren's recent work highlights include:

  • Acted for wife in financial remedy proceedings.  The husband’s friend and brother intervened in the proceedings asserting interests in the matrimonial assets. At a preliminary issues hearing the court found that all were to be set aside save for the brother’s interest in the business. At final hearing the court found that the husband was unable to provide a credible explanation for what had happened to the proceeds of sale from a former matrimonial asset and added this back into the matrimonial pot justifying a departure from equality. Due to the wife’s vulnerability and limited  earning capacity a joint lives order was also granted.

  • Acted for wife in financial remedy proceedings where the primary issue was one of post-separation contributions.  For six years the husband had not made any contributions to the children’s school fees, which the wife was reimbursed for on top of a 50/50 division of matrimonial assets.

  • Acted for fourth and fifth intervenors, parents of the husband, in relation to a freezing order and a final hearing where the wife sought to set aside a transaction undervalue and further dissipated assets. The husband failed to comply with the final order in the financial remedy proceedings which  resulted in two separate enforcement applications and one committal application where the husband was committed to prison  for nine months for dissipating the matrimonial assets without the wife’s knowledge. The court urged the parties to settle by consent given the length of the proceedings and significant costs implications.

  • Acted for mother in TLATA and Schedule 1 CA 1989 proceedings. The case involved a mother being forced to issue proceedings as the father would not agree to buy her interest in a jointly owned property. The mother  relied on the principles outlined in Bagum v Hafiz [2015] EWCA Civ 801 for a preferential right to buy the entire property before it was placed on the open market. The mother was successful at final hearing and also obtained a significant costs order against the father. The father subsequently sought permission to appeal which was dismissed.

  • Acted for a civil partner in child arrangements and contested Family Law Act proceedings, where the mother was awarded a child arrangements “live with” order in relation to all three children, including the child that was not biologically hers. The court agreed that she was clearly a “psychological parent” (Re D [2006]) and that it was important in keeping the three children together.

  • Acted for mother in her application to relocate with her children to Jerusalem. This case involved international legal considerations surrounding security and the instruction of foreign experts.
