Round the clock support
Won't shy away from difficult cases
Committed to swiftly progressing claims

Kate is a Senior Solicitor in the Military Claims Department at Bolt Burdon Kemp, having joined the firm in September 2015.

She specialises in bringing high value clinical negligence and personal injury claims against the Ministry of Defence on behalf of serving soldiers and veterans.  She is passionate about achieving justice and the best possible settlements for her clients.  Kate enjoys a varied practice, with her expertise ranging from accidents at work, delays in diagnosing medical conditions, through to non freezing cold injury (NFCI), bullying and harassment and sexual assault.  She has been involved in the Voyager flight litigation, successfully settling a number of cases for military passengers involved in a near miss incident over the Black Sea.

Kate qualified as a solicitor in 2014, having completed her training in personal injury and medical negligence with a specialist London law firm.  Prior to that she worked as a clinical negligence paralegal with a particular focus on brain and birth injury cases and had the opportunity to volunteer for an educational trust in Nanyuki, Kenya, as part of her role.  Volunteering is important to Kate, who has been a school governor for her local primary school in London and has trained as helpline volunteer for Victim Support.  Supporting military charities is a key part of Kate’s role and she enjoys the challenge of thinking of innovative and fun ways to raise funds for this important work – from organising a Big Curry lunch for the Soldiers’ Charity to taking part in the Nuclear Rush race for Blesma.

She studied history at the University of Leeds achieving a First Class degree and completed the Graduate Diploma in Law and Legal Practice Course in London with distinction.

  • Kate was fantastic, she was more like a friend than a solicitor.  She kept me informed all the way through and was really supportive.  I cannot fault the firm at all.
