Kira McKane is a first year trainee and is currently completing her second seat in the Family department. She will gain experience in divorce, separation, financial provision, children’s matters and other related issues.
Kira’s first seat was in the Commercial Litigation department. Kira provided support to all members of the commercial litigation team and gained experience in various areas, including contract disputes, debt recovery, insolvency issues and property related disputes.
Kira graduated from the University of Southampton in 2016 with a 2:1 in LLB Law (Hons). Kira then went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at the University of Law in Guildford and graduated with a Distinction in July 2017. Alongside her studies, Kira gained experience as a Legal Assistant in the residential property team at a high street law firm, before commencing her training contract with Trethowans in September 2017.
Having attended the South Coast Business Awards, I was really impressed with the level of commitment that Trethowans has to the local community, particularly in terms of the amount of charity work they do and I really wanted to be a part of a firm that shared those values. What really stood out for me was their focus on trainee development; I knew they were a firm who invested in trainees both personally and professionally.
Away from the office
Kira enjoys dancing and long country walks. She also enjoys charity work and particularly enjoyed the 26-mile Stonehenge Trek in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society. On a day-to-day basis, she enjoys reading, catching up on the latest Netflix series and general arts and crafts.
