Katherine’s legal career followed 7 years working as a civil engineer in the construction industry and she still maintains close contact with the engineering world. Katherine advises her internal client on all phases of construction and engineering projects, including procurement, operations and dispute resolution, with her special focus on providing quality legal advice that is also both practical and commercial. Katherine primarily supports Carillion’s infrastructure business and given the preference of infrastructure clients for the NEC form of contract this has led to the NEC also becoming Katherine’s special area of interest.
