Katherine is an Associate Solicitor in the Regulatory team. Prior to qualifying, Katherine was a litigation and public law paralegal in local government legal services and volunteered with advice centres and a human rights charity. Having trained at the firm, she also has experience of criminal litigation, clinical negligence, and immigration law.

Her regulatory practice is wide-ranging and includes advising public and regulatory bodies in governance and regulatory matters, defending professionals in a variety of sectors such as legal and financial services and healthcare. Katherine is also a member of the private prosecution team.

She is able to assist from the early stages of an investigation, through to the hearing (where applicable), as well as provide discrete advice on niche or unusual regulatory issues. Given the breadth of Katherine’s work, her clients range from corporates, public bodies, and regulators to individuals facing disciplinary action or seeking advice in relation to their practice.

Katherine also represents social benefit claimants at the Department for Work and Pensions tribunal as part of the pro bono committee at Kingsley Napley and is an active member of the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion group.

With a particular interest in electoral law, Katherine has written articles on electoral fraud and the impact of technology for the Criminal Law and Justice Weekly and for the Spring Newsletter of the Young Fraud Lawyers Association, of which she is also a member.
