Kyle is developing a practice in all areas of family law.
Kyle has experience in representing people with mental health difficulties, and has been described by solicitors as ‘going above and beyond what is expected of counsel’. Kyle is very keen to develop a practice involving issues which touch upon mental health, and work in the Court of Protection. Kyle was recently instructed in a final hearing in the High Court regarding an application for wardship made under the inherent jurisdiction, in which there were concurrent proceedings in the Court of Protection; the matters arose out of the peculiar family circumstances as a result of mother’s mental health difficulties.
In public law proceedings, Kyle regularly acts for both local authorities and parents in a wide range of applications. Kyle has acted in cases which engage international law, including both the Brussels IIa Regulation, and the 1996 Hague Convention.
Kyle acts in private children disputes at all levels, for all parties, and has acted in multi-day final and fact finding hearings.
Of particularly interest are claims under TLATA. Kyle is well placed to deal with such matters; he had extensive experience in property litigation before coming to the Bar, which complements this area of practice.
Landlord & Tenant, and Property
Prior to coming to the Bar, Kyle worked for a highly regarded firm of solicitors with a niche property, and landlord and tenant litigation practice. As such, he is well versed in these areas, and more specifically forfeiture disputes and service charge determinations.
Whilst in pupillage, Kyle was supervised by Archie Maddan and so he has a thorough knowledge of HMO licensing law. Kyle has acted for both local authorities and landlords in HMO disputes in both the civil and criminal jurisdictions.
Kyle maintains a paper practice in these areas and is happy to settle pleadings, or give advice.
Kyle is developing a practice in employment law, and has experience in unfair dismissal, discrimination and whistle blowing claims.
Kyle acted as junior counsel in the EAT in Carreras v United First Partnership UKEAT/0266/15/RN in which the EAT held that an expectation was sufficient to amount to a PCP. Whilst in pupillage, Kyle assisted in the Supreme Court case of Onu v Akwiwu  UKSC 16 which determined that discrimination on the basis of immigration status does not amount to racial discrimination.
Kyle accepts instructions in cases in both the Crown Court and the Magistrates’ Court, both defending and prosecuting.
