Catherine Keeley

Cathy is a graduate member of CILEx and has worked in the Court of Protection department for 14 years. She specialises in managing the financial affairs of clients who lack capacity and, whilst the majority of her clients have sustained a severe brain injury, she also enjoys working with clients who have learning disabilities.

With a degree in Criminology & Sociology, Cathy had originally planned to work in the Criminal Justice System but, after accepting a position in our Court of Protection department in 2003, she found supporting clients who have sustained serious injuries to be immensely rewarding.

Cathy works alongside our litigators, managing client finances in order to facilitate their rehabilitation, setting up care and therapy packages and arranging for the purchase and adaptation of suitable accommodation. She works with clients and their families both throughout the litigation process and following settlement, arranging for investment of compensation and working with the client to budget longer term, to ensure their needs are met throughout their lifetime.

Outside of work Cathy enjoys holidays to America and the Lake District, renovating her home, and watching football.
