About

I am a solicitor in our Commercial Litigation department. My practice primarily consists of breach of contract claims, director and shareholder disputes, contentious probate and trust disputes, co-ownership of property matters and professional negligence claims. I also undertake work in partnership disputes and debt and insolvency.

Over the years I have gained experience of conducting litigation in the High Court, County Court, Bankruptcy Court and First-tier Property Tribunal, and I undertake my own advocacy where appropriate. I act for both claimants and defendants, be that body corporates or individuals.

In addition to the above, I have experience conducting mediation and joint settlement meetings.

My primary focus is to support my clients from beginning to end, whilst advocating and representing their interests against the other side. I am proud that my clients trust that I always strive to get the best possible outcome for them.

I appreciate that litigation and dispute resolution can be daunting so I always make sure my advice is clear and easy to understand.

You will see that I am recognised as an Associate and key lawyer in the Legal 500.

Having worked as a paralegal and trained at a boutique litigation firm in the City, I qualified in Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution in 2014. Since then, I have worked in the Home Counties and joined Taylor Walton in 2020.

Interests

I enjoy swimming, dog walking, DIY and growing fruit and vegetables with my young daughter.

Cancelling or terminating a contract? Are the terms fair?

By Katarina Morgan | 30 August 2022

In general terms, once a contract has been agreed it becomes binding and the parties will be legally bound to perform according to the contractual terms and conditions. However, in reality it is not always that simple and things can go wrong. If one party feels the contract is not being upheld, depending on the…
