About Kate

Kate is based in Berwins' Harrogate office and her day to day job involves managing the property and affairs of clients who lack capacity where a member of the firm acts as their professional Deputy, making applications to the Court of Protection to decide matters on behalf of people who lack capacity, advising on, preparing and registering Powers of Attorney and advising on elderly client and capacity issues. Kate attributes her passion for this particular area of law to the satisfaction derived from helping vulnerable people and the people close to them, dealing with important matters which heavily affect their lives. Kate loves to see the positive difference she's making to people's lives.

Experience

Kate attended Durham University where she studied Law LLB. She started out doing Family law and specialised in Child Abduction cases, regularly attending The Royal Courts of Justice before enrolling herself onto a Private Client Conversion course. Before joining Berwins in 2021 as a Senior Associate in Life, Kate spent 9 years working in a large national PI firm where she dealt with the whole spectrum of private client work, including contentious probate. Latterly she spent most of her time managing high-value Deputyship files developing good relationships with the clients she acted for and their support networks.

Kate spends most of her time with her dog and two children. Her main passions are mountains and walking, something she has done unsupported in the Himalayas, the Alps (specifically the Haute Route and Tour du Mont Blanc) and in the Lakes and Snowdonia. In addition to this, Kate also enjoys road bike racing and squash. When she's not doing any of the above, she spends her time gardening and reading.
