Kate plans to qualify locally and is currently studying towards her Jersey Advocates’ Exams. In 2021 she received the Family Law Award for achieving the highest marks in the Jersey Law Course Examinations.

She has dealt with many international matters including tracing spouses, foreign marriages and divorces.

Kate commented “I am excited to have joined a firm with such an excellent reputation and with huge potential for growth. I have known Barbara and Nick for some time and I am looking forward to working with them. We are all passionate about what we do and having the same ethos makes a huge difference to a working environment. I am looking forward to qualifying as a Jersey Advocate and being able to return to regular court work soon.”
