Kate Lloyd, Legal Secretary

Kate began her career within the law industry in 1995, starting out as an office junior within a small firm of solicitors in Manchester. Kate quickly progressed to working as a legal secretary moving on to specialising in personal injury matters. After 10 years, Kate successfully gained employment with a prestigious firm of solicitors in Manchester within their Commercial Litigation Department, supporting a trainee Solicitor. Kate then moved on to working in a newly established conveyancing department supporting one of the partners. Despite being a huge learning curve for Kate, she was very quickly managing her own conveyancing case load as well as providing support to the wider department.

After starting a family, Kate decided to challenge herself further taking a post as a junior fee earner within the conveyancing department for a firm based in Wilmslow, successfully managing a case load alongside the Head of Department.

Kate joined Bakers in 2017 working within the Family Department. She now supports David Parkes, Partner and Head of Family, as well as offering secretarial support to Hayley Thomas, Family Solicitor.
