‘World-leading’ Modern Slavery Act 2015: review confirms more to be done
Katherine has significant experience representing requested persons and foreign governments in relation to extradition requests from both within and outside the EU. Her experience of government work gives her a unique insight that enables her to offer pragmatic and practical advice to clients. Katherine has a track record of defending persons subject to high profile, sensitive requests that are often politically motivated or part of a broader campaign against an individual. In such cases which can often play out very publicly and across multiple jurisdictions with multiple increasing pressures Katherine regularly works alongside colleagues in our International Protection team to assist clients and to deliver the careful, strategic management such cases require.
Katherine’s other areas of practise include modern slavery related issues and business and human rights, in particular where these issues cross-over with potential criminal liability or investigations. Katherine is recognised as a thought-leader in the field of Business and Human Rights and is a founder and co-chair of the Business and Human Rights Practitioners’ Network. Her work in this sphere has included advising individuals in modern slavery investigations; acting in a high profile, multi-jurisdictional, independent review into allegations of a leading charity’s involvement in human rights abuses and most recently advising on a proposed mandatory UK human rights due diligence law for the CORE Coalition. Other relevant work has included advising NGOs and law firms on issues of corporate responsibility and liability for human rights abuses and environmental harm. She is a regular contributor to consultations convened by the UN Business and Human Rights Working Group.
