Kevin McManamon

Associate Solicitor, Sinclairs Law

Kevin joined Sinclairs Law in 2016 after practicing for a number of years at two highly regarded London education law practices.

Kevin’s traditional practice area is that of special educational needs. He has been instructed on appeals and claims heard by the SEND Tribunal and regularly represents parents at hearings in both England and Wales. Having successfully acted in one of the first reported appeals from SEND to the Upper Tribunal, he has developed a breath of knowledge in this jurisdiction and is now frequently instructed by parents on appeals to the Upper Tribunal.

Alongside special educational needs, Kevin has also acted on both Admission Appeals and Exclusion Reviews. He has experience in advising on school re-organisation and advising Governing Body Disciplinary Committees.

In the further and higher education sector, Kevin has represented students facing disciplinary action by their college or university as well as those students in conflict with their institution over academic and other matters. His expertise in public law and disability discrimination matters is particularly sought after in this sector.

Kevin has spoken on education law matters at conferences and webinars and is a contributing editor to Clarke Hall and Morrison on Children. Kevin also has experience in Public Law and representing parties before the Court of Protection.
