Siobhan Kelly

Experience

  • I have over 30 years' experience of litigation in both the Court of Session and Sheriff Court.
  • I established the family law department at Scottish firm, HBM Sayers and have been instrumental in creating a wide-ranging practice with involvement in a number of high profile and complex cases.
  • I was instructed in one of the highest ever financial provision divorces to run before the Scottish Courts, which in itself encompassed specific but unusual aspects of the Family Law (Scotland) Act 1985.
  • I was Curator ad litem in a case which proceeded to the Supreme Court and reached determination on unprecedented issues in respect of the right of unmarried fathers to participate in the Children's Hearing System.
  • I am frequently appointed by Glasgow Sheriff Court to report and make recommendations to the court on the future arrangements for the care and upbringing of children in disputed cases. The developing issues in cohabitation and international child relocation cases are also now very much a core element of the growing department's practice.
  • I am FLAGS arbitrator.
  • I am a member of Consensus Collaboration.
  • I am accredited by The Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in both family and child Law.
