Meet Lindsey Kidd, Hillyer McKeown Group Managing Director.

Lindsey is not your usual Group Managing Partner (GMP) because Hillyer McKeown (HM) is not your usual law firm. If you are seeking a legal expert with over 25 years’ experience, commercial acumen and a personal approach, contact Lindsey. Her genuine passion for providing unrivalled client service is helping to shape HM for today, and for the future.

“First and foremost, I advocate building genuine strong relationships, delivering excellent service and achieving the right outcome for clients.”

My Role as Group Managing Director

As GMP, I am also responsible for overseeing the ongoing development and delivery of the strategic business plan. As part of this, we have adopted a more corporate structure to deliver a resilient business, building on our early adoption of the Alternative Business Structure (ABS) which includes:

  • involving other professionals outside of the law
  • enhancing our use of data to drive decisions
  • ensuring continued innovation in our approach to deliver a relevant, truly client focused and value based offering.

Professional services of true quality and value depend upon expertise that fully appreciates the issues, creativity and innovation that identifies the possibilities, and the resources, commitment and tenacity to deliver results. Our people and our supporting diversified services portfolio ensure we are well placed to hit this brief.

Our vision is also about HM attracting and growing talented people from within and I am confident that through ongoing development and investment, the HM of the future will remain competitive and highly commercial. Our people have incredible potential and are full of talent, innovation and determination to succeed. This means the Firm is ideally placed to help guide clients through their complex legal challenges, and support them to take advantage of their growth opportunities and realise their ambitions.
