Katherine has been helping those who have suffered catastrophic injuries her whole career. Since qualifying in 1996, Katherine has worked exclusively in Claimant litigation, working with clients who have suffered brain, spinal cord and amputee injuries.
A Fellow of APIL, Katherine believes passionately in access to early treatment, rehabilitation, case management and suitable accommodation. To achieve this, early resolution of liability disputes and pro-actively securing interim compensation are vital for clients who have suffered life changing injuries and need help, as well as their families. Katherine remains absolutely committed to this specialist area, having acted for children and adults alike as well as those lacking capacity, regularly achieving multi-million pound settlements for her clients, even where Liability has been contested.
Outside of her day-to-day role, Katherine is always keen to dedicate time to voluntary activities, and is a past committee member of Headway North London. Katherine has also fundraised for national charities Headway UK and the Spinal Injuries Association, both of which do fantastic work in helping those who have suffered life-changing injuries.
