Profile

Katie is ranked as a leading junior barrister in the Legal 500 directory.

Her established practice covers all aspects of private family law and she is regularly instructed in both the financial and children aspects arising from a relationship breakdown.

Katie has considerable experience in both Schedule 1 applications and high net worth financial remedy cases involving nuptial agreements, off-shore assets, third party claims, pensions and complex business structures. Alongside her busy practice, she is regularly led by silks and has been praised for her meticulous preparation and command of the detail.

She is repeatedly instructed in difficult children matters, often involving serious allegations of sexual abuse, violence and parental alienation, as well as cases with a long history of intractable or repeat litigation.

Katie is known for her exceptional client care skills, “spot on judgement” and sensible, tactical advice. Her advocacy is both persuasive and robust and her focus from the outset is to achieve the best possible outcome for her client.
