Kieran Bowling

Favourite holiday spot?

Whistler, Canada. I try to go snowboarding overseas every year or so and have found myself returning to Whistler a couple of times due to its culture, terrain, and snow consistency.

How do you unwind?

Usually surfing down the Surf Coast.

What do you enjoy most about working in the legal sector?

There’s no one thing I enjoy the most. Rather, it’s a combination of critical thinking, strategic planning, and the adrenaline rush of advocating for clients before the courts and tribunals.

What is the best piece of advice you can give lawyers starting out today?

Get a taste of as many different practice areas as you can when you start. It is highly unlikely that the first practice area you work in will be the one for you.

What do you think sets Rigby Cooke Lawyers apart from other firms?

The collegial and friendly culture which only thrives from Rigby Cooke’s outstanding leadership (which is across the entire firm, not simply at a partner level) and the standards it sets.

What do you enjoy most about working with your clients?

In other practice areas, you may only know your client and their matter from a paper trail. In building and construction, there is a clear realness to what you are assisting in. You can meet your client on the construction site, observe a build in real time and inspect issues when things go wrong. It is this realness our clients bring which I enjoy the most.
