Katie Collis

Trainee Solicitor

Dispute Resolution

Katie started her Training Contract with Girlings in March 2021 in our Residential Property team. Her second seat is with our Dispute Resolution team based in our Ashford Office.

Katie moved to Canterbury in 2011 to study Law at the University of Kent, graduating in 2014 with an upper second class degree. Whilst at University, Katie participated in mediation competitions and was a member of the Kent Law Clinic where she assisted with client matters in both litigation and property law.

After university, she went on to work at a number of charities, specialising in handling gifts left in Wills whilst also managing the legacy department at a national charity and representing the charity on a number of panels and conferences. In 2019 she went on to study the Legal Practice Course (LPC) with joint LLM award full time at the University of Law Bloomsbury, graduating in 2020 with a Commendation and a Distinction.

She joined Girlings in September 2019, whilst still completing her LLM LPC, working as a Paralegal in our Commercial Property team, assisting on all aspects of commercial and residential transactions including purchases, sales, company refinances, remortgages and leases. Outside of the workplace, Katie enjoys socialising with friends, renovating her home in Canterbury, horse riding and cooking. Katie is a fluent Welsh speaker.
