Kathryn Evans

Associate

Biography

I am a specialist Family Law solicitor, based in our London office.

The majority of my work is focused on events and arrangements following the breakdown of a family relationship. For example, a lot of my work encompasses divorce and dissolutions, and helping people to deal with the financial issues that come hand in hand with the end of a marriage or civil partnership. I also help people involved in disputes concerning arrangements for their children. Some of my clients are not married, yet the end of their relationship has left property ownership matters that need resolving.

However, some of my work does not involve the end of a relationship, such as the preparation of agreements between couples before or after they marry (widely known as pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements), and dealing with the legal formalities of modern families, such as applying for parental orders following on from the birth of a child to a surrogate.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I wanted a career that offered intellectual stimulation and the chance to help people with the problems and issues that life can sometimes throw at them. My career to date has delivered!

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am driven by trying to support, advise and guide my clients through the legal side of the rollercoaster that is often a relationship breakdown. The reward comes when you see them off into their future, having survived the ups and downs, as unscathed as possible.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Good wine, good food and good friends are enough for me, for the most part, although I try and balance the indulgence with keeping fit.

I love to travel and aim to keep my French language in check for trips across the Channel by reading French literature.
