Kate Kennedy

Managing Associate

As a managing associate in the construction team, I advise a wide variety of clients in relation to their (largely non-contentious) construction issues on all types of developments.  This has included hotels, residential tower blocks, shopping centres, office buildings, student accommodation, high specification residential developments and a football stadium.  My role also involves advising on construction aspects of real estate transactions such as disposals, acquisitions and refinancing.   


With a strong banking background I tend to have a more commercial approach to negotiations than many lawyers.  In previous roles I have acted for a number of well known pension providers, investment funds and private equity companies in all aspects relating to their developments.   


I enjoy getting to know my clients and understanding how best to help them make the most of their construction documents, whilst making things as straightforward as possible.   A previous client commented: “Kate’s efficient, commercial, no-nonsense approach to negotiations makes her a pleasure to work with”.
