Kate works in the Company & Commercial Department dealing with general corporate matters, whilst Lottie specialises in employment law and David deals with planning & development matters. 

Lottie graduated from Leeds University in 2003 after gaining a degree in politics, before going on to study at York College of Law for her GDL and LPC. Kate, who graduated from Newcastle University in 2003 with a degree in law, worked as a paralegal in the in-house legal department at McDonald`s Restaurants before joining Rollits as a trainee and David graduated from the University of York in 2003 with a degree in History, and subsequently completed the GDL and LPC at the College of Law in York.
