Kate Baldwin began her career in politics, working as an intern in the US senate, then as a research assistant in the House of Commons. Her fascination with the impact of the law on individuals then prompted her to retrain in law and she qualified as a solicitor in 2002.
After specialising in employment law in private practice, she moved into consultancy, providing employment and commercial expertise for law firms and private companies. Alongside consulting, Kate co-founded a wealth management business in 2005, taking on the role of Company Secretary until 2011. During that time, she commenced a career in lecturing and continues to lecture in business law, family law and professional conduct at the University of Law.
She became a dementia champion for the Alzheimer's Society through the Dementia Friends initiative in 2014 and is currently providing consultancy in conjunction with the Alzheimer's Society to project manage a Dementia Initiative for one of the UK's largest discretionary management firms.
