'Across the business, but especially in the COP team, it’s clear they put their clients at the heart of everything they do and work in their best interests. I’m thrilled to be joining the team and particularly at such an exciting time in its growth journey.'

Lynsey Harrison, Clarion partner and head of the Court of Protection team, added: 'We’re proud to have built such a strong Court of Protection offering at Clarion and it’s essential that we have a team that puts respect and care into the heart of everything they do. Katie embodies this. 

'Her experience in dealing with complex cases, including those concerning personal injury and clinical negligence, is a fantastic asset to the team. As we look to continue to grow our presence across the UK and beyond, we look forward to seeing the positive impact Katie will undoubtedly make to both the Clarion team and our clients.'
