I enjoy acting for businesses and individuals in relation to their property needs. I deal with commercial, agricultural and rural property and my work includes:
• Sales and purchases
• Development, options and conditional contracts
• Investments including acting for pension funds
• Leases and landlord and tenant matters
• Acting for lenders
• Advising on rights and obligations
• Dealing with the property aspects of company sales and purchases
I offer a thorough and practical service, working hard to ensure that my client’s transactions move smoothly and efficiently to completion.
I qualified in 1997, I have always specialised in property law. I joined Gotelee in 2001, becoming a partner in 2006.
If you are a Commercial Property Developer, Land Owner or a Lender I can help you for a fixed fee.
My clients have said that they had “confidence that we were dealing with an astute and professional solicitor… even through many complications, Catherine has always been more than willing to answer our layman’s questions and has given us clear and precise advice as we went along… we could not have wished for a more professional and charming solicitor”. The Legal 500 which is an impartial view on legal service providers says: Gotelee Solicitors is ‘top class for business acumen and advice’. Catherine Abbott ‘is head and shoulders above many other firms’.
When I am not at Gotelee I am a keen runner and have completed several half marathons, and my first marathon in 2014. A group of us from Gotelee completed the Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge we have climbed Scafell Pike and various other routes in the Lakes, Dorset and Wales.
