Kathryn is a key part of our Family Team and a member of Resolution, an organisation for family justice professionals in England and Wales. She primarily advises clients through divorce and separation proceedings, working as a collaborative lawyer to minimise the strain of the process. Her work involves both the financial aspects of separation as well as disputes regarding children. In addition to divorce settlements, Kathryn has extensive experience in pre- and post-nuptial agreements and cohabitation rights.
With a focus on cases where high financial values are involved, Kathryn helps clients understand the implications of agreements for related tax, pensions, trusts and businesses. She also has expertise in handling arrangements for farm estates.
Having practised in family law for over 25 years, Kathryn has developed a deep expertise on all aspects of separation and divorce proceedings. She helps her clients resolve complex disputes, often involving financial assets and property located across multiple jurisdictions as well as pensions, trusts and company assets. Working for clients ranging from the public to the private sector and company directors to farming families, Kathryn utilises her strong professional relationships with a range of property valuers, tax experts and accountants to ensure the best outcomes are achieved.
Throughout her work, Kathryn works hard to ensure that individuals going through a relationship breakdown maintain a constructive and civil relationship, especially if children are involved. This means being pragmatic, straight-talking and supportive and always working towards an agreement rather than a court-imposed decision. Although, of course, she is a skilled representative of her clients if an agreement is not forthcoming.
