Katie Lee


Katie has been at Forbes since 2018 and is a solicitor in Forbes' Commercial department. Prior to qualifying in 2021, Katie completed her training contract at Forbes having gained experience in Forbes' Commercial, Corporate, Criminal and Employment departments.

Katie's work relates to advising on, negotiation and drafting commercial contracts governing both the provisions of goods and services for businesses and consumers. Katie deals with a number of commercial contract types, including agency, distribution, consultancy, manufacturing, franchising and other bespoke matters. Katie also acts in connection with construction projects, implementing building contracts, collateral warranties and other ancillary agreements.

Katie regularly advises on intellectual property matters and information technology, including software development and licensing, and support and maintenance contracts.

We were looking for legal advice regarding a performance bond. An acquaintance had engaged Forbes Solicitors and had been pleased with the advice provided by Katie Lee regarding a similar matter. We contacted Katie Lee and have been impressed with the advice and promptness of the service provided by Katie and her colleagues at Forbes.


We have partnered with Forbes for many years for employment law support. This was the first time I have worked with Sheroze Nadeem and Katie Lee. We required support with a third party contract dispute and I cannot fault the service we received. Calls or emails were returned quickly and advice was provided in an easy to understand format and we received a lot of support during the dispute. They negotiated for us and the outcome was more in our favour than it would have been without their support. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the team.

I cannot thank Katie Lee enough for the thorough work she did in drafting a set of Platform Terms for my startup Attendist. She went above and beyond to detail clauses that needed adding and the end result is I really feel 'protected' by the Terms of Business she put together. I was impressed by the breadth of the clauses and the scope of what she set out to cover in the document, and her willingness to explain the legalese to a tech-minded newbie like me. This happened a few times! She was thorough, patient and conscientious. Can't commend highly enough.
