Catherine Pugsley joins Harcus Sinclair18/02/16
Having run her own legal practice in Italy for the past six years where she advised international clients on multi-jurisdictional matters, Catherine Pugsley has now returned to London to join Harcus Sinclair as an associate to work alongside private client partners Keith Bruce-Smith, Jonathan Burt and Lucy Gibson.
Partner Jonathan Burt commented: “We are thrilled that Catherine Pugsley has chosen to join us, as senior practitioners of her quality are scarce. Her recent cross-border experience in Italy will be extremely valuable to our existing cross-border practice. London is continuing to grow as a centre of international private client work, and high quality advice with a genuinely international outlook will continue to be in great demand.”
“Harcus Sinclair was an obvious choice when I decided to relocate my practice; I had been working with them for a number of years, I know they are excellent practitioners with a great reputation in the market, and it is a privilege to work with them,” commented Catherine on her move.
Catherine trained at Allen & Overy, qualifying as a private client solicitor in 1998, focusing on trusts, charity law and advising high net-worth individuals. In 2000 Catherine left to join Freshfields and was seconded to its Rome office, before re-joining Allen & Overy and then setting up her own practice on Lake Como. She advised primarily on Anglo-Italian cross-border estate planning, property and commercial matters. She is a member of STEP.
