Family Law

Position

Senior Associate

Career

Katherine specialises in all financial aspects of relationship breakdowns, such as separation and divorce, as well as disputes arising from the separation of cohabitants. She also advises on private children law matters for parents and grandparents, most particularly issues regarding residence and contact.

Katherine is a Senior Associate in our Family team with over 13 years experience in family law.

Katherine approaches all her cases in a sensitive, pragmatic and commercial manner. She understands the emotional strain of any family breakdown and, therefore, endeavours to resolve matters without the need to attend court.

If court intervention is required then Katherine will provide support and guidance to her clients during this process. She promotes wealth protection measures such as cohabitation and pre/post-nuptial agreement which allow clients to have control and certainty over their financial position in the event of a relationship breakdown.

Katherine is a member of Resolution, the national organisation of family lawyers.

Aaron & Partners LLP fields a ‘highly professional team that is very well regarded for financial remedy matters'. It also has strength in agricultural family matters. Lorraine Saunders  is noted for her ‘friendly and supportive manner and very good attention to detail’. Head of department Richard Barge acts almost exclusively for business owners/shareholders or their spouses and regularly deals with cases where the assets and wealth are held offshore, in trusts and in complex pension schemes and company structures. Senior associate Katherine Livesey  is ‘very thorough; she carefully lays out all the options and implications for clients so that they can make a fully informed decision’. Livesey is also ‘exceptionally good for children work’. 'Very approachable' associate Simon Mawdsley is also recommended. The group is frequently involved in cases with an international element and as a result is well placed to advise on jurisdictional disputes and on foreign jurisprudence in family matters.
