About Kathryn

Kathryn has specialised in family law for over 30 years. Her practice encompasses substantial financial remedy cases often involving complicated company/family business structures. She is widely experienced in the involvement of trusts, particularly offshore. Leave to remove from the jurisdiction/ internal relocation cases for international and domestic clients and nuptial settlements and multi-jurisdictional issues form an important part of her practice.  Kathryn’s 20 years of experience sitting in a part-time judicial capacity, most recently in the Financial Remedies Unit in the Central Family Court in London, give her a particular insight into any case from all perspectives.

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 & Partners 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 joined Harcus Sinclair as a partner in August 2009 and for the preceding two decades had been a partner in London firms well-known for their family law departments.
