Meet Katrina

After completing her Training Contract with Lawrence Stephens, Katrina qualified as a Solicitor in January 2021 and now works in the firm’s Real Estate Finance team.

Katrina has a joint honours degree in Law and French from the University of Bristol and went on to study LPC LLM at the University of Law, where she achieved a distinction. Prior to commencing her Training Contract, Katrina spent a period of time as a paralegal.

Her experience has included the opportunity to attend a trial at the Business and Company Courts, in which our team defeated a petitioner’s s944 Unfair Prejudice claim against our client; and more recently, a cross-jurisdictional regulatory matter. Katrina enjoys engaging with clients in a personal way, by treating their matters as she would her own: with compassion, enthusiasm and dedication.

Katrina is Lawrence Stephens’ resident adventurer. She is highly sociable and loves to travel and meet new people. Whether trekking in Machu Picchu, running a half marathon in Bordeaux or taking part in charitable work, Katrina always makes time for new pursuits. A true Europhile, Katrina is fluent in French and German and hopes to start another language course soon.
