About Kate

  • Wills, tax, and trusts
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Estate administration

I am a Senior Associate and Team Lead for the Richmond Private Client team. Since qualifying in 2003, I have worked in private client teams for firms in Salisbury and Devon and joined Moore Blatch in 2018 (now Moore Barlow, May 2020).

I specialise in wills, powers of attorney, probate and estate administration, inheritance tax and estate planning, advance decisions, court of protection applications and trust advice.

I have a lot of experience administering large and often complex estates and making special probate applications where there is a disputed or lost will. I have also acted for and advised a large number of national charities in their role as personal representatives, and on estate administration issues generally.

My work involves acting for clients from all walks of life; who may be elderly, vulnerable, high net worth individuals, the relatives or close friends of a person who has died, professional executors, or even charities.

Providing a sensitive, friendly and understanding approach to every situation is important to me, as I deal with clients who are at a challenging and often distressing time in their lives. I aim to provide clear advice tailored to the individual client, and to support my clients throughout their work with me and my team.

I have two young children who keep me busy! I love running (completing two marathons in 2018), reading, nice walks in Hampshire where I live and socialising with friends.
