Partner / Head of commercial property.


An attentive lawyer, who guides clients through the complexities of property law.
Head of the Greenwoods GRM commercial property team, Karin believes that it is vital to work together with the firm’s clients and to develop an understanding of their businesses so it can provide the best service available.

Karin encourages all the members of her team to get to know clients, to visit them and to learn their needs so that they can offer a bespoke service. The success of this approach is reflected in the Legal 500 guide (2015) in which clients are quoted as being ‘impressed with the high level of service’ from the commercial property team

A commercial property lawyer for over 35 years, Karin has a wealth of experience in all aspects of property transactions - including acting for a number of household names during her 25 years with City of London firms and as an in-house lawyer with a financial institution.

The merger in 2018 that created Greenwoods GRM gave the firm a stronger presence in the banking and finance market thanks to its team of five lawyers in the London office. In East Anglia, practice head Alastair Gunn is the key partner. He works closely with real estate partners Karin Horsley and Samantha East, and litigation associate Jamie McConnell, to advise financial institutions in the UK and overseas.
