Dispute Resolution - Fraud Defence


Kathryn is a Partner and Head of the Fraud Defence Group. A specialist in civil fraud, Kathryn and her team have been involved in some of the most high profile commercial fraud cases before the Supreme Court in recent times. Key to the success of her practice is Kathryn's ability to deliver a truly bespoke service to her clients. She understands that being involved in serious litigation will often impact on all aspects of an individual's professional and personal lives, and tailors her advice and support accordingly, often becoming their most trusted advisor. Her success is due in large part to her practical and sensible approach and ability to navigate adeptly around extremely complex legal and factual issues.

Kathryn regularly manages matters spanning multiple jurisdictions and of a highly sensitive nature. She is familiar with managing teams of international lawyers and other professionals and is never fazed by the size of the opposition.   She is used to offering comprehensive strategic advice to anyone facing a civil claim while simultaneously being investigated by prosecution agencies, employers, the Inland Revenue and both UK and foreign regulators.  She is praised by Chambers & Partners for her "ability to win over clients and her even and measured approach to litigation". Kathryn is a director  of the Fraud’s Women’s Network (FWN), a co-founder of the Firm’s Criminal Law Panel and is often called upon to act as a supervising solicitor.

    The way we use the internet haschanged. It is no longer merely a digital reference library. As the internet has grown and the amount of information available has expanded, people have developed a new way of accessing this information in a way that is relevant to them. The ‘new’ internet, or ‘Web 2.0’, is a network of relationships where users interact and share knowledge with each other. Virtual friends become the custodians of knowledge, recommending products and services through their blogs and on other social media sites. By seeing what your like-minded friends find interesting, you are better able to decide what information you wish to ‘consume’.
