Kate Thompson


Auckland Office
Dispute Resolution


I grew up in Auckland before moving to Dunedin to obtain a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Otago in 2018. Prior to joining McVeagh Fleming I worked as a Law Clerk for six months at another firm in Litigation and was admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor in July. I joined McVeagh Fleming's Family Law team in 2019 working with the team on matters involving relationship property and parenting disputes.

Outside interests

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family, unwinding by keeping up with fitness or with a nice glass of wine or beer. In the summer I like to spend as much time as I can at the beach and enjoy good summer road trips. In the winter months I enjoy skiing and a good Netflix movie.
