Katherine's 20-year career in the legal sector couldn't be more perfectly aligned to creating Free Range Lawyers. Having chosen the legal business rather than legal practice path, she held a number of roles at major U.K. firms covering marketing, sales, learning & development and knowledge management. More recently, through her own consulting business run from Australia, she has advised law firms from Canada and the U.K. to New Zealand and a lot in-between on strategy and sales.
Most relevant to Free Range Lawyers is her work in establishing and growing the flexible resourcing service Vario for Pinsent Masons, taking it from an idea to a thriving business in under three years. She remains one of few people with a deep, global insight into flexible resourcing in the law.
Katherine is Teaching Fellow on the Master of Legal Business course provided by The College of Law, Australia. She is a lecturer for the College of Law in Western Australia, a member of the Law Consultancy Network, a panel member for the College of Law Centre for Legal Innovation in Western Australia, a regular contributor to publications such as LegalBusinessWorld and Remaking Law Firms and speaks at events worldwide.

Our purpose is to harness the benefit of
untethered working for individual
lawyers, for progressive mid-tier law
firms, for families and for communities.
