I've been with The Lawyer since 2007 and in that time have seen sweeping changes across the profession, including the implementation of the Legal Services Act. Primarily I cover the litigation markets as well as the latest goings-on at the bar, including the major cases being heard across the High Court and appellate courts. For the last five years I have been responsible for compiling The Lawyer's annual pick of the top cases to be heard in London. I also have strong knowledge of the insurance markets and take an interest in everything from the personal injury sector to the Lloyd's of London market. As deputy news editor I am also responsible for helping co-ordinate The Lawyer's news coverage. I'm an avid Tweeter and like to make my opinions known. Follow me @thelawyerkaty and join the conversation.

Eversheds has been ordered to pay £2 in nominal damages to Newcastle International Airport (NIA) after the Court of Appeal (CoA) brought to an end a six-year court battle.
Litigators could see a rush of professional negligence claims against the sector following the Court of Appeal decision to penalise those that fail to comply with court directions, leading lawyers have warned.
The Court of Appeal has thrown its weight behind Lord Justice Jackson and issued a stern warning that litigators must comply with court procedures or face restrictive spending sanctions.
