Our People

Patrick Kelly

Paddy qualified as a solicitor in Leeds in 1981.

He established Kelly & Co. in 1987 after "Big Firm" experience to offer a service
to those in the property industry wanting more personal and stable relationships with their legal team. Paddy’s particular interests include property development and investment, planning, landlord and tenant. When asked how he copes with stress, his reply was “I take it out on Anne” (his wife for nearly 35 years and business associate).

When he gets free time, Paddy likes to listen to music being particularly fond of opera. He enjoys reading and is involved in charity work. A father of three, Paddy is very much a “family man”. He enjoys most sports and has a passion for rugby. He avoids any form of housework. Paddy confesses that he is partial to the odd Guiness or two. Whose round is it next?

Paddy has three passions in his life. His work, Anne and a pint of Guiness

Stephen Stanier

Steve qualified as a solicitor in 1991 moving to work in Leeds in 1995. He joined Kelly & Co. as an associate in 1999, left in 2001 then returned three years later to become a partner in 2004. Since qualifying Steve has worked exclusively in the field of property development and retail work.

Steve has a rather sad devotion to Blackpool FC and still manages to get to as many games as possible, despite being exiled in Yorkshire. Steve is also a passionate music lover with over 1000 albums in his record collection. In his student days he was in a band who unfortunately split up on the verge of greatness due to having no instruments. Music industry’s loss, property markets gain!

A dedicated property solicitor, in tune with our clients’ needs.
