Kate accepts instructions across Chambers’ criminal practice areas, regularly acting for both the prosecution and the defence.
During her pupillage, Kate gained exposure to a wide variety of criminal work including serious violence, RASSO, burglary, weapons and drugs offences. She has experience prosecuting and defending in both the Crown Court and Magistrates’ Court.
Before coming to the Bar, Kate assisted vulnerable clients to navigate the court system with Support Through Court. This, combined with other pro bono work with the housing and immigration team at Duncan Lewis Solicitors, has given her a strong understanding of the challenges facing individuals as they journey through the legal system, and she is therefore well placed to assist them.
Kate previously worked as a paralegal, specialising in insurance and regulatory matters, which included overseeing cases involving investigations by HSE and the Insolvency Service. Kate regularly engaged with clients and was actively involved in negotiating settlements.
