Company Secretarial Principal Contact

Katie is a solicitor in our Corporate & Commercial team. After raising a family, she has worked at Wilsons in the commercial team on and off for over 20 years. Katie studied at Kent University and qualified as a solicitor in London, working at a City firm as a commercial lawyer, then moving in-house as legal advisor to a large American computer manufacturer.

Katie has two separate work roles.  Firstly, she provides many client companies with a company secretarial service which includes general compliance work and helping clients with this responsibility.  The companies concerned range from commercial companies to schools and charities.  Secondly, as Katie is a qualified solicitor she is also able to provide advisory work relating to compliance and general commercial issues.

Recent highlights

  • Dealing with the challenge in the Spring of  2016 of arranging for all our company secretarial clients to address the issues raised by new legislation requiring them all to have registers of People with Significant Control.  This was a long and time-consuming process;
  • On the advisory side, the firm provides Katie's time once a week on a pro bono basis to help the charity Help for Heroes so that she can assist them with their commercial legal issues. Katie thoroughly enjoys the challenge of dealing with a range of contracts and contractual issues which the charity needs to address

Katie lives in a very rural part of the world and enjoys walking (with her dog) and enjoying the countryside.  She loves to ski, play bridge and also enjoys upholstery and making indoor furnishings.
