Seamus Kelly - Solicitor Advocate
Seamus joined the Carter Burnett team in March 2020. He completed his Law Degree in 2006 and has remained within the legal sector ever since.
He worked for the NHS legal department in Northern Ireland for almost 4 years before relocating to England in 2011. The experience of dealing with costs from a Defendant perspective paved the way for his transition to Claimant costs.
Seamus is now a qualified solicitor who practices exclusively in costs, specialising in Clinical Negligence and high value Personal Injury claims. He is conversant in all aspects of the costs process, from drafting high value budgets and bills, to negotiating favourable settlements, and attending court. Seamus can often be found attending CCMCs or detailed assessments across the country. His keen eye for detail, combined with his pragmatic and commercial approach, ensure that he always achieves the best outcome for his numerous loyal clients.
Outside of work, Seamus enjoys long distance running, and has completed a number of marathons and half marathons. He is also a regular at the Great North Run.
