Keivon (Pronounced as Kay-von) has a varied practice and appears regularly for Applicants in the High Court with a particular emphasis on Judicial Review involving Immigration, Asylum and Citizenship issues. As well as habeas corpus proceedings. Keivon was awarded a bursary from the Immigration, Asylum and Citizenship Bar Association (IACBA) to study the Advanced Diploma in Immigration and Asylum in the Honorable Society of the Kings Inns. Keivon practises in both Civil and Crime, appearing before the Circuit Criminal Court and Central Criminal Court, which provides a strong base for a wide array of Judicial Review. Keivon is half Irish and half Persian and his linguistic and cultural background has allowed him to deliver legal services in an approachable and reassuring way, particularly for Middle Eastern clients.

In addition, Keivon has an extensive background in Insurance Litigation with a particular focus on Tort & Personal Injury Law prior to being called to the Bar in Ireland. Keivon previously worked in a leading Defence Firm as a Senior Legal Executive, where he dealt with Employer and Public Liability Personal Injury cases, defending claims for both Insurers and Self-Insured clients. He has advised both UK and Domestic Insurers on Liability and Quantum. As well as on Professional Negligence and Construction files.
