She converted to law at City University and then completed the BVC at ICSL. She was called by Lincoln's Inn in October 2003. After interning in Washington, DC for a non-profit organisation, Kate completed a criminal law pupillage and practised in criminal law until 2008 when she went in-house to work for Berrymans Lace Mawer solicitors. At BLM Kate worked on all aspects of professional negligence law, specialising in police law. In July 2010 Kate accepted tenancy at chambers. Police Law Kate has an extensive practice in police work and a broad experience of civil claims including claims for wrongful arrest, assault, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, discrimination and misfeasance in public office. Kate regularly handles human rights claims, especially involving Articles 2 and 8 and those arising out of protest. She has particular expertise in the complex issues surrounding the use and protection of informants and has recently argued several cases addressing the developing area of law relating to the "core immunity" of witnesses from suit.

She handles cases from initial advice and drafting the Regulation 21 notice through to misconduct hearings, the Police Appeals Tribunal and Judicial Review.
