I qualified as a Solicitor in January 2012 and practised as a criminal defence solicitor until April 2015 when I decided to specialise in the Court of Protection. I made this move having learnt of the Court of Protection a few years after qualification and immediately recognised the crucial role it plays in protecting the most vulnerable members of society.
I am an experienced litigator and advocate having qualified with Higher Rights of Audience. I enjoy working with vulnerable people and find my work in the Court of Protection extremely humbling and rewarding.
As a Partner, I manage a team of Court of Protection Solicitors and Paralegals in the London Office. In my role, I look after clients who do not have the requisite mental capacity to manage their own property and financial affairs and by its nature, my job is extremely diverse.
The majority of my clients have suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of a personal injury and I am often involved at an early stage when personal injury proceedings are initiated. My role includes making initial applications for deputyship; investment of funds; management of care packages; sale or purchase of property and adaption works; making Statutory Wills and keeping all cases under constant review, acting in the clients best interests at all time.
"I was incredibly impressed with how approachable, friendly, professional and knowledgeable both Katie Strong and Alice Cullingworth were. I would not hesitate to recommend their expertise, especially when you are dealing with a highly emotional family matter. Both Katie and Alice genuinely care about their clients and that comes across so reassuringly." - 5* Trustpilot review
