Katherine Smith

Job Title: Senior Associate Solicitor

Location: Manchester

Court of Protection

Katherine qualified as a Solicitor in 2008 and since 2010 has specialised exclusively in Court of Protection work. In 2014, Katherine completed the STEP Diploma in Trust and Estates and is a registered Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP).

She has extensive experience in managing the property and financial affairs of clients who are unable to do so themselves as a result of brain injury, or for clients who lack mental capacity as a result of negligent hospital treatment, illness or due to old age. The majority of Katherine’s cases involve the management of high profile multi-million pound compensation awards.

Katherine will act where the appointed Deputy is a professional, and she is also instructed by lay applicants who wish to apply to the Court of Protection as financial Deputy. She is regularly instructed in Statutory Will and gift applications.

For clients whose compensation claim has concluded, Katherine is instructed in the creation of Personal Injury Trusts, as well as on-going Trust administration.

Katherine is proud to have been appointed as Director and Treasurer of Headway Blackpool Wyre & Fylde in 2014. The charity provides information, support and social activities for people suffering from acquired brain injuries, as well as supporting their carers, family and friends. By volunteering, Katherine is able to assist and guide the members using her knowledge of financial management under the Court of Protection.
