Kathryn Harvey

I have worked within the legal arena for over 30 years, starting my career in the Lord Chancellors Department, which subsequently became Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunal Service. I have worked within both the public and private sector as a Solicitor and retain my practising certificate.
