Catherine studied law at Cambridge University and the University of Poitiers, France, before completing her LPC at the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice and starting her training contract at Mundays LLP. She qualified as a dispute resolution solicitor in September 2009 and became a partner in 2020.
In June 2013 Catherine joined Stevens & Bolton LLP as an associate in the dispute resolution team specialising in international arbitration and commercial litigation. In May 2015 she became a senior associate.
Catherine has experience advising clients on a broad range of commercial disputes. Her work has involved litigation, arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution as well as general advisory work. In 2015 she enjoyed a 3 month secondment as part of a client’s in-house legal team which gave her the experience to see it from the ‘other side’.
She has been a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators since June 2012 and is a member of YIAG (a group for younger arbitration practitioners which is sponsored by the LCIA).
As a reflection of her interest in the sector, Catherine is part of Stevens & Bolton’s Life Sciences group.
