Katharine is the Regional Leader of our West and Wales practice and our Bristol Office Senior Partner. She relocated from our London listed company practice to our Wales and West practice in 2010, having previously been based in Bristol in the 1990s. She has a wide range of experience working with clients from many different sectors, but has particular experience in working with listed companies and with regulated companies across the financial services and utilities sector.
Her London experience was focussed almost entirely on the listed company market – working predominately with global telecoms companies, including BT plc and Cable & Wireless plc. Since returning to Bristol she has worked with a portfolio of larger businesses including Computershare, Welsh Water, Wales and West Utilities. She also is the audit partner for the National Trust and for Bristol Water.
Outside the firm, Katharine is a Trustee of the Avon Wildlife Trust and chairs their Audit and Finance Committee. She is also a member of the Advisory Board of Business in the Community in the South West and the current Prince of Wales’ Ambassador for Responsible business in the South West.
Katharine is married, with 3 children. Her interests include sport (mainly watching these days), walking, and reading.
