New partner to lead dispute resolution team at Lincolnshire law firm

Katherine Marshall

Lincolnshire law firm Wilkin Chapman has added another string to its bow by creating a new dispute resolution team.

Katherine Marshall has been promoted to partner to head up the new team, which will be based at Wilkin Chapman’s offices at Oxley House in Louth and serve clients across the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Marshall qualified as a solicitor in 2009 and joined Wilkin Chapman in 2018.

She said: “It’s an exciting time as we’ve just moved into our new Wolds office in Louth and we have a fantastic opportunity to establish a dispute resolution and Wills disputes presence in the Wolds area. We now have a dedicated team that can deal with those disputes and we have a good foundation from which to grow those two areas.

“There’s a team of three of us at the moment here in the Wolds, and we’ve only been working together for four months. It’s already working really well and we’re a very close-knit unit. I’m looking forward to growing the team, growing the Will disputes offering and having a permanent dispute resolution presence in the Wolds to help those in the local area.”

“Becoming a partner is always something I’ve wanted to do”, adds Marshall.

“When you start out as a trainee solicitor that is always the thing that you’re ultimately aiming for. My family has farmed on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds for several generations, and I attended school in Horncastle and so I have a strong link to the local area and to the agricultural sector in the region too.”
