About Kathryn

Kathryn has over 30 years’ experience in family law, in particular complex cases in terms of the division of often substantial financial assets and the care of children – increasingly on a multi-jurisdictional basis. 

She deals with money (high value and international) and children matters, including many leave to remove applications which are becoming more common. 

She is active in the field of nuptial and civil partnership agreements, as well as all the issues that arise on the breakdown of any relationship, whether involving marriage or not. 

Kathryn is a mediator and arbitrator, and sits as a Recorder in Family Law matters, both finance and children. 

The Legal 500 directory notes that Kathryn is ‘highly recommended' and very active in children matters including Schedule 1 financial applications. She is a notable practitioner in Chambers which has previously commented on her being "extremely astute and gifted at analysing the situation and individuals, recommending the best course of action at every turn, and executing it in such a succinct and powerful way" and notes that clients describe her as "extremely plugged-in and immensely effective"


Kathryn moved to join Harcus Sinclair as a Partner in August 2009 after 10 years at Gordon Dadds and prior to that Druces & Attlee and Joynson-Hicks/Taylor Joynson Garrett.

Professional memberships

In 2012 Kathryn was among the first to qualify as a Family Law Arbitrator and is a Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
