Originally from Cambridge, I completed an LLB (Hons) in Law Degree at Sheffield Hallam University and then moved to London to undertake the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law.
Following that I worked as a paralegal at Kingsley Napley Solicitors in London in the professional regulation department before joining Whitehead Monckton as a Trainee Solicitor in 2007.
I qualified as a Solicitor in the Tax & Estate Planning department of Whitehead Monckton in February 2009 based in Maidstone.
In October 2016 I became an Associate Director and relocated from Maidstone to Canary Wharf to head up the Tax & Estate Planning team at Docklands Solicitors, following the successful merger of the two firms.
I now offer the full range of private client services and expertise to the London market, adding value to Docklands Solicitors' clients and the local area.
I am the head of Whitehead Monckton’s Corporate Social Responsibility team.
I have experience and expertise in:
- Tax planning and succession planning for individuals and their companies
- Will drafting
- Probate and estate administration
- Enduring and Lasting Powers of Attorney
- Trust creation and administration
I enjoy advising on tax efficient solutions and planning for the protection of clients and future generations of their families and business interests. I often act for clients at challenging times of their lives and have to deal with difficult topics such as mental incapacity and complex family dynamics.
I am a Full Member of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP) and a Full Accredited Member of Solicitors for the Elderly (SFE) and a Dementia Friends Champion.
What my clients say:
"Katie was helpful and understanding and provided us with a Will we required. I would recommend"
"Superb attention to detail, advice, communications and efficiency! The best solicitor support I have experienced"
“I would definitely recommend Docklands Solicitors and carry on using them in the future as they are professionals who know their subject in a friendly environment.”
“We were very happy about the result.”
When out of the office:
I have two young children and weekends and evenings are normally spent as a taxi service, but when I can I go running or to the gym. I also like to entertain and socialise with good friends, food and wine.
