What clients say about Kate

“We are indebted to the abuse team at Leigh Day and can't speak highly enough about the way Alison Millar and Kate Whiting have handled our son's case. We have gained closure, acknowledgment and some practical financial leverage for therapy for him. While the case was long running and protracted, Alison and Kate were clear about this from the start and their expert advice, honesty and timely liaison has been first class. We couldn't recommend them enough for any other family who might find themselves in the position we did.” 
"At first, I was overwhelmed by the prospect of a complicated legal process and having to relive what had happened. In addition, the fact that the nurse was acquitted for the charge relating to me further compounded my distress. The exceptional team at Leigh Day swiftly alleviated my anxiety and despite having no legal training myself, I found the process to be surprisingly straightforward.

"Thanks to the expertise and resoluteness of Kate I can now move on with my life."
