Kiran has had the conduct of thousands of cases, representing clients under Legal aid and privately funded cases in Immigration, asylum, and human rights cases and in appeals ranging from the Immigration Tribunal, High Court, Court of Appeal, House of Lords and in the European Court of Human Rights.  The latest reported case was WN (Gambia) in the lead case of JD Congo & Others in the Court of Appeal, where she assisted the Senior Partner, Mr. Ariya Sriharan.

Kiran is multilingual with fluency in Hindu, Punjabi and Urdu. This makes her ethnic minority clients comfortable.

Over the years, Kiran has become specialised not only in Immigration Law but also in Family Law proceedings. She conducts many private clients in divorce and financial proceedings.

In November 2012, Sriharans Solicitors congratulated Kiran on completing 25 years of dedicated service with the Firm.
