We are delighted to welcome Katy Dowell, who has just joined as our PR Features Manager. She will oversee all aspects of the scores of features we place in business publications each month for our clients, ensuring the whole process goes smoothly.

Katy is a highly experienced business journalist having previously worked on two of Britain’s top legal and insurance business magazines - The Lawyer and Insurance Times.

Katy's role with our clients starts with the initial stages of devising interesting ideas for articles and gaining commissions with target publications. This continues through to ghost-writing articles to a high quality and arranging the required approvals. Katy also brings her depth of experience and contacts in the insurance and legal sectors for the benefit of our clients.Katy Dowell

Prior to joining Kelso, Katy worked for The Lawyer, the UK’s leading legal magazine, first as a senior reporter focused on litigation, then as news editor with overall responsibility for the scores of legal sector stories it publishes each week. As well as reporting news and feature writing, Katy was responsible for project managing the magazine’s annual Top 20 Cases rankings and helping to deliver The Lawyer UK200 (the definitive annual listing of the UK’s biggest law firms). She also sat as a judge for the prestigious The Lawyer Awards for seven years.

During her eight years at The Lawyer, Katy interviewed thousands of law firm partners and barristers (no exaggeration!), and has written about just about every significant law firm in England and Wales.

Katy began her City career at Insurance Times, particularly focusing on the commercial insurance broker market and legal expenses sector. While with Insurance Times she was also an active freelance insurance writer appearing in such publications as The Observer, the Chartered Insurance Institute’s in-house magazine The Journal, and British Insurance Brokers’ Magazine The Broker.

Welcoming Katy to Kelso Consulting, managing director Tim Prizeman said: "I have known Katy a long while, having had dealings since early in her career at Insurance Times. She brings huge experience across many aspects of both journalism and magazine production, as well as important characteristics such as determination and tenacity, that will help our clients enormously."
