Having previously worked at a leading London niche family law firm, Kevin specialises exclusively in family law – priding himself in providing inclusive, sensible and commercial advice. He advises in all aspects arising on relationship breakdown, divorce and separation, as well as pre and post nuptial agreements and civil partnerships. He also has experience in relation to private law children issues, including contact arrangement, relocation disputes – both within the UK and where one parent is seeking to move abroad with the children. Kevin will try to avoid court solutions where possible and will use collaborative methods, mediation, arbitration and other resources to find harmonious solutions.
Kevin is a member of Resolution, an organisation of family lawyers committed to a constructive and non-confrontational approach to family law matters.
Away from the office, Kevin enjoys spending time with his young family and challenging himself in outdoor activities as often as possible.

- Successfully challenging false allegations made against a father in children act proceedings, which had led to him having no contact with his child, and securing a shared care arrangement.
Kevin Danagher was empathic, knowledgeable, committed and had a great way of strategising with me which made the biggest difference. I wish marriages didn’t have to end, but all I can say is that if they do you need a good lawyer who has empathy, knowledge and time. Kevin had all of this and worked extremely hard to ensure that I had a good relationship with him and his team.

Kevin Danagher was the most approachable and empathetic lawyer I have ever worked with. On top of this, he was very technical and always presented information to me in a logical and structured format, which enabled us to make decisions very quickly. Worth every penny.
Kevin recently instructed me on a case which went all the way to final hearing. I found him to be extremely diligent and his case preparation was consistently thorough. I know that the client in question trusted Kevin implicitly, and would regularly comment about how grateful she was to have the benefit of his calm handling of all issues that arose throughout her case. I could see that they had an excellent client-solicitor relationship, which I think is invaluable during stressful litigation. In the case in question we secured a very good outcome, and this would not have been possible without Kevin’s hard work.

I had the pleasure of working with Kevin earlier this year on what, sadly, turned out to be an extremely acrimonious case. There were allegations of dishonesty and the case was bitterly contested. Two additional parties were joined to the proceedings and there were numerous interim applications. I was extremely impressed with Kevin’s handling of the case. He showed great attention to detail in the preparation of the necessary documents and the emotional support which he provided to the client was invaluable. There is no doubt that Kevin’s thorough preparation for a fully contested interim hearing (at which we secured very favourable results) made a major contribution to our ability, as a team, to negotiate a very good final outcome for our client
