Experience

Kate Joined Birketts in February 2022. She is a solicitor in our Data Protection Team.

Before joining Birketts, Kate worked in-house practising commercial law and regulatory law within the financial services sector. She spent six years with a leading global insurer starting as a paralegal before training and qualifying as a solicitor in February 2018. She then moved to a smaller fintech in the payments sector before making this move to private practice.

During her time spent in-house, Kate played a significant role in the organisation’s GDPR compliance implementation project which included legal analysis of data flows within multiple areas such as supply chain, customer service, claims and marketing and a collaborative approach with her business client to advise on and implement required changes to contracts, privacy policies and customer journeys. She has continued to advise on data protection law matters within the commercial sector and looks forward to advising across multiple sectors in her new role at Birketts.

Kate is based in our Norwich office.

Other Information

Before entering the legal profession Kate worked in marketing and account management roles based in Norfolk, including the FMCG sector and the construction industry. This experience coupled with her in-house lawyer’s background has helped her develop a wide understanding of business processes and a pragmatic approach to her work. She thinks she can also remember how to build a stud wall.
