Our clients’ reviews

Having worked with Kate on various commercial property related matters for our mutual clients for several years, I can do nothing but sing her praises. Kate's ability to look at the overall picture whilst looking after the many inter-related legal issues are second to none and made what could have been contentious or complex issues feel like a walk in the park.

Kate is a true force of nature whose dynamism is matched by her professional focus. I have known Kate for a few years now and I am repeatedly impressed by not only her determination but also her empathy. If you are seeking a lawyer who will drive the process and actively work on your behalf, then I would urge you to contact her.

Katheryn did a fantastic job in managing our commercial lease for us. She was always prompt, had a great eye for detail and provided sound pragmatic advice which proved vital during our contract negotiations. I would have no hesitation in recommending Katheryn to others.
