Catriona Watt - Fox & Partners

Within: Partnership

Fox & Partners' 'high-quality' team is noted for its 'hands-on' approach to contentious partnership matters. The practice is co-led by Catriona Watt and Caroline Field, both of whom were promoted to partner in July 2017, with the firm continuing to benefit from the management and sector experience of founder Ronnie Fox. Watt, who possesses 'superb judgement' and gives 'extremely commercial advice', specialises in departures and arrivals, partner rights and entitlements and negotiating terms of exit. Field is 'astute' and 'capable under pressure' and draws on her commercial litigation background to advise on partnership disputes. Also made partner in July 2017, Dean Fuller is a veteran of the partnership space.
