Catherine has a wide range of experience of non-contentious commercial property work, acting for local authorities, developers, corporate landlords and commercial occupiers.

CURRENT PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES

Catherine is a Member of the Law Society.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Catherine has advised her clients on all aspects of multi-million pound freehold acquisitions and disposals, pursuant to both conditional and unconditional contracts, often involving complex overage provisions. She has also advised on a number of complex leasehold acquisitions, 1954 Act renewal leases and all aspects of estate management, including Licences to Assign and Underlet, as well as Deeds of Variation and Easements.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Catherine started her career at Slaughter and May in the City, where she worked on a number of high profile deals. After deciding she wanted to focus on more pure commercial property work rather than M&A transactions, she moved to Eversheds’ London office. A few years later, when moving out to Kent and starting her family, Catherine went to work for Kent County Council. She worked there for over seven years, heading up the in-house Property Legal Team as the Council’s most senior property lawyer, for the last four years. With all the changes in local government, Catherine decided it was the right time to return to private practice and is delighted to be part of the team at Gullands.

PERSONAL

Catherine is married with two small sons and likes cycling, sailing and reading in her spare time.
