Kate Brett

Spear's Review

Kate Brett joined Hughes Fowler Carruthers in 2009. Before this she trained at Anthony Gold, where she gained experience in family law, civil litigation and residential and commercial property. 

Brett now acts for international HNW and high-profile individuals in financial and children matters. Her cases are often high-value financially, and have a complex element such as multiple jurisdictions, relocation from a jurisdiction or the involvement of substance abuse. 

Brett has acted in a number of reported cases in the High Court and Court of Appeal. On her promotion to partner in 2019, James Roberts QC described Brett as ‘a real star’ and praised her ‘detailed and strategic approach to cases, together with a tenacity driven by her determination to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients’. 

Adviser Profile

Kate Brett specialises in all aspects of family law and is described an 'excellent choice' in acting for international High Net Worth and high-profile individuals in financial and children's matters. An 'extremely diligent solicitor' who leaves no stone unturned when fighting every element of her clients' cases, Brett has extensive experience in a wide range of cases including a number of reported cases in the High Court and Court of Appeal. 

Her practice includes high value financial cases involving complex trust structures and offshore assets. Brett continues to expand her practice in complex Children Act and Family Law Act cases and has particular expertise in cases involving substance misuse and drug testing.
