Contact Catherine

After graduating from Durham University, I completed my GDL and LPC at the Chester College of Law, which culminated in my qualification as a Solicitor in 2016.  I currently work in the Property Litigation Department at our Gadbrook Park office.  My practice area includes a wide range of both personal and corporate aspects of Property Disputes which include, Boundary Disputes & Agreements, Trespass and Encroachment, Covenants which affect the land and contentious Adverse Possession Applications.

I adopt a particular expertise in dealing with Registration and Title issues. I have developed a niche specialism in this area and I am skilled in addressing and resolving complex and multi-layered title issues.

I have been privileged to be involved in some widely reported property cases, most notably the leading Court of Appeal cases of  Bennett v Winterburn; Clearway Drainage v Miles Smith; and Harris Court Mills.  These cases have become leading precedents in Commercial and Property practice.

The Bennett v Winterburn is of particular significance for it has been reported in the wider media and has effectively created ‘new law’ in relation to prescriptive rights of access over land.  This is a case in which I was involved from the very start – through the Tribunal proceedings and thereafter through the Appeal process up to and including the final decision at the Court of Appeal.

I pride myself on my meticulous attention to detail, combined with a pragmatic approach to problem-solving.  My approach is always client-facing, led by client objectives and with the utmost sensitivity.

What our clients say about Catherine

I am very happy to recommend friends and family to your firm as you have always demonstrated a robust and equally pragmatic approach to the cases you manage. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with yourself over the years and I am 100% reassured that Chloe cannot go wrong with you guys in her corner!

Helen

Catherine was great to work with. Despite the complexities of the issues, she was sound in her advice and confident in the end result, despite quite large hurdles that at the time seemed insurmountable. She was diligent throughout, kept me fully informed at each step and was always willing to take on board my views with regards to the matter at hand. Nothing has fazed her and, after nearly two years of perseverance, Catherine achieved a positive result.

Jane

Alex Sandland and Catherine Gregson are both excellent litigators. Not only do they strenuously support their clients and the claims brought by them or against them, they also make every effort to ensure that all avenues of settlement are explored. They maintain an incomparable professionalism in an area of law that is notoriously litigious, whilst ensuring the costs incurred remain entirely proportionate to the issues addressed
