Meet Katherine

I am an experienced Corporate Solicitor with over a decade of experience working with small and medium-sized businesses. I am an integral member of the firm’s Corporate and Employment teams and trusted advisor to my clients.

I have a diverse client portfolio and significant experience supporting clients with the closure of a range of deals. I act for both buyers and sellers on share and asset sales, acquisitions, restructuring/reorganisation and other corporate transactions. 

With a particular interest in the beauty industry, I work across a wide range of sectors including technology, building services, procurement, compliance, hospitality, retail, media, healthcare, dental health, sport and property sectors.  I also regularly advise clients on a wide range of commercial contract matters, from terms and conditions to shareholders’ agreements.

When working with clients, I believe that it is crucial to get to the heart of their business needs, to understand the core sensitivities, objectives and changes required for improved success.  Both appreciating and anticipating the commercial needs of each client is key to providing meaningful and sound legal advice.

I was the Vice-President for the London Young Lawyers Group between 2011 - 2013.

  • Preparing a detailed shareholders agreement and articles for an accountancy firm

  • Advising multiple clients on shareholder exits, including agreements dealing with shares and employment, statutory procedure for the removal of directors and ongoing liabilities
