Legal 500 - Recommended Lawyer 2017

Katie is a Partner in Winckworth Sherwood's Family Team. 

Katie regularly advises men and women from all backgrounds on the law relating to divorce, relationship breakdown, child related issues, pre-nuptial or cohabitation agreements. Her clients include high net worth individuals, professionals in the city and entrepreneurs, but also include the financially vulnerable and those who have dedicated their lives to raising children and supporting the family unit. 

With such a diverse client base, Katie's strength lies in finding the right fit and approach for the individual depending on the complexity and/or sensitivity of the matter, and the assets involved. She has been described by The Legal 500 as “tough and pragmatic” whilst at the same time attracting praise for her “wonderful personal touch with clients”. 

Katie is a member of Resolution and is a qualified mediator. She believes in working with clients to find a fair, sensible and pragmatic solution to all the issues they face following a relationship breakdown, and to ensure the whole family can move forward as soon as possible. Katie does not lose sight of the fact that in cases where there are children, divorce will dissolve a marriage but not the broader ties of family.
