Kay is recognised as a Recommended Lawyer and a Leading Individual in the 2022 edition of The Legal 500.

The 2022 Chambers UK Guide recognises Kay as an exceptional individual ranking her as ‘Senior Statesperson’: a lawyer who no longer works hands-on with the same intensity but who, by virtue of close links with major clients, remains pivotal to the firm’s success. The guide states, ‘Kay Kelly has experience representing clients in claims relating to traumatic brain injuries, wrongful births and delayed diagnoses.’ A testimonial says “She is compassionate, and her organisational skills are second to none. She makes you feel fully supported.”
