Kathryn was called to the bar in 1989, joining Lincoln House as a tenant in 2007. Prior to joining Lincoln
House, Kathryn practised from Winckley Square Chambers in Preston and has retained her Lancashire
connections by appearing regularly in Lancashire Crown Courts.

For the first 20 years of her career, Kathryn specialised specifically in both the defence and prosecution of the most serious criminal offences brought before the criminal courts. This is work that Kathryn still maintains for both privately paying clients and those with the benefit of legal aid.

In addition to Criminal work, Kathryn has spent the last 10 years developing her practise into the line of regulatory work, this work includes cases brought in the criminal courts and before specialist tribunals.
Kathryn undertakes the majority of her work as a junior alone but does have significant experience as a leading junior.
