In the latest episode in our podcast series on forensic accounting, I spoke to Kathryn, a partner and head of the fraud defence team at Mishcon de Reya, about her experience and career.

We discussed her roots in a mining town in south Yorkshire and her rapid rise to partner at a prominent firm. She was one of the first partners to work part-time, enabling her to focus on both raising a family and helping clients to navigate high-stakes cases.

It was no surprise to see that Kathryn was named in The Lawyer's Hot 100 2021.

Kathryn tells us about events in her life that taught her to believe that, with hard work, she could achieve anything, and that her decision to go into law was more down to proving a point than destiny.
