Jane Katyar

Senior Solicitor

Jane trained to be a professional musician at Dartington College of Arts before reading law at University College London.

Jane has specialised in family law since qualifying as a solicitor in 1989, at leading family law firms in London and West London, and now at K J Smith. Her particular areas of expertise and interest lie in resolving the financial issues that arise as a result of divorce and the breakdown of civil partnerships and relationships between unmarried couples. She also has a wealth of experience in dealing with and resolving disputes over the arrangements for children, where the parents are unable to agree.

Jane has worked for clients from all walks of life and brings a dynamic yet sensitive approach to her cases, the majority of which end in a negotiated settlement. Jane lives in West London. She loves travel, entertaining and music, all types bar modern jazz.
