“Young and highly intelligent” Kelly Pennifer “is considered to be "a tour de force" in mercantile list, technology and construction work and injunctive relief cases, and is applauded for "taking a firm hand when appropriate." (Chambers & Partners 2010).
She is recognised as one of the leading juniors in the North in the field of commercial litigation/dispute resolution and has been recommended in this area in directories and legal journals for a number of years.
Previous editions of Chambers & Partners have described Kelly variously as “”exceptionally brilliant and approachable” making her a favourite with regional solicitors”; as an “independent minded and hard working advocate with a direct and pleasant manner” who is always “quick to master the case” and as “developing an increasingly pronounced market standing”.
Whilst Kelly practises predominantly in the North, she is happy and keen to work in London.
