Catherine Wolfenden has been named in a prestigious national ranking of the profession’s brightest and best.

Catherine, who heads the Regulatory Group at Top 25 international legal practice Osborne Clarke, is among this year’s Hot 100, which is run by leading legal publication The Lawyer.

The ranking recognises 100 lawyers who have made an impact not just on the performance of their firms, companies or chambers, but also on the wider business community.

One of the UK’s leading procurement and regulatory lawyers, Catherine Wolfenden advises on complex regulated public contract tenders and disputes.

She founded the Women in Regulatory Law network and was named Regulatory Lawyer of the Year at the Women in Compliance Awards 2015.

Last year she also took on the role of Osborne Clarke’s training principal.

“Once again Catherine has deservedly been singled out by her peers as a leader in her field,” says Peter Clough, head of Osborne Clarke’s Bristol office.

“She is a real trailblazer. She practices what she preaches and is an inspiration to all the lawyers who work with her here at Osborne Clarke. Diversity is instrumental to the success of any organisation and Catherine’s career serves as a great example of this.”
