Everys Solicitors has appointed Kathy Trist to its Litigation Team. Based primarily in their busy Exeter office, Kathy will undertake general litigation matters with particular interest in property litigation, professional negligence and commercial contract disputes.
Kathy qualified as a solicitor in 2004 and given her years of experience has come across most types of property dispute. Property litigation covers a wide area from disputes over who owns what and on what basis, to boundary disputes, construction complaints and when in dispute what rights both parties have over their respective properties. Kathy also advises on clauses in Deeds or Leases and their implications for both the commercial entity and the private individual. Commercial entities can have issues in relation to their business premises whether as owner or when considering their occupation of leasehold premises.
As an Accredited Civil Mediator Kathy uses this additional skill set when fighting her client’s corner, giving robust and realistic advice whilst continuing to keep her eye on the goal they seek to achieve.
Kathy is a member of the Property Litigator’s Association, the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists and the Civil Mediation Council.
Gay Cherryson, Partner, Head of Litigation at Everys, said: “Litigation is a key practice area for Everys, and Kathy is a solicitor with a vast knowledge and experience of this sector. Our clients expect the very best service from us, and we pride ourselves on delivering that service. Kathy’s appointment has strengthened our ability to give our clients what they want and we are excited to have her join our team”.
