Who We Are


Kiely Solicitors is a boutique legal practice founded by Joe Kiely in April 2012 and was soon joined by PJ Kiely, in May 2013. Since then, the firm has grown organically to what it is today.

We believe we’re not your typical firm on the high street. We are positioned, not alone to offer the usual wide range of general practice services, but also a niche range of corporate and commercial services to modern and vibrant businesses, nationally and internationally.

Why Work With Us


  • Accessible
    Like modern businesses today, we leverage the most up to date communication technology. This enables us to make ourselves as accessible as possible to our clients. We’re also not afraid to use them.
  • Practical
    We use our skill and knowledge in industry sectors to bridge the gap between the theoretical and actual, in order to guide our clients to their end goal.
  • Personal
    At it’s heart, Kiely Solicitors is a family practice. Our clients use our expertise because they have an affinity to us and want us to represent their interests. For an honest, personal and accessible representation, we are the go to firm.
