‘My HNW clients are all very varied,’ Dawson Cornwell’s Kate Allen tells Spear’s, ‘which is what makes it so interesting. We are an international practice and expect to receive instructions with a jurisdictional dimension.’
Allen, who became a partner at Dawson Cornwell in 2004, advises on all areas of domestic and international family law – particularly high-net-worth financial settlements, children disputes and cohabitation.
‘Kate is a superb tactician who will move heaven and earth to achieve the right result for her client,’ enthuses one client, who also describes her ‘formidable intellect and empathy’, combined with ‘incisive analysis of the most complex of cases’.
Described by sources as "in a league of her own", the "incredibly bright and hard working" Kate is consistently ranked as a leader in her field in Chambers, Chambers HNW, The Legal 500 and Citywealth.
With 25 years of experience and a partner since 2004, she advises on all areas of domestic and international family law particularly high net worth financial settlements, children disputes and cohabitation. She is a long standing member of Resolution.
