Kate leads our Dispute Resolution department. She also works closely with a variety of other departments at the firm to share her dispute resolution expertise. This could be advice on infringement of intellectual property or artist management issues in our Music, Media and Entertainment departments, or advising in respect of a shareholder dispute in conjunction with our Company and Commercial department.
She is highly-skilled at handling property disputes, advising clients on a range of issues from rent arrears to boundary and property ownership disputes. Kate has a wealth of experience advising in respect of contractual disputes in a range of industries. She also advises private clients on disputed wills and the administration of estates.
As is the case across the firm, Kate’s preference is to skilfully negotiate a resolution that works for her clients. But in the small minority of cases where that is not possible, she guides her clients through the complexities of litigation and finds them a positive resolution in court.
