KOD Lyons promotes Stephen Kirwan to partner
Human rights law firm KOD Lyons has announced the promotion of Stephen Kirwan to partner.
Mr Kirwan, who joined the firm in 2013, leads the Dublin-based firm’s immigration and international law team.
Managing partner John O’Doherty told Irish Legal News: “We are delighted to announce Stephen’s elevation to our partnership team.
“He started with us as a legal intern from Trinity College in 2013, trained with us, qualified with us, developed our KOD Lyons immigration and international law team and is rightly seen by his peers as a first class human rights lawyer and advocate.
“Stephen has led groundbreaking cases in the area of disability law and heavily involved in recovery and redress cases involving Magdalene laundries and mother and baby institutions.
“He has worked with clients and other organisations to highlight the legacy of human rights abuses in Ireland. His new partnership reflects those achievements and his ability to lead in important areas of law.”
