Katy Shrimplin

Legal Director

Katy Shrimplin

Katy joined HSE from the Insolvency Service and brings a wealth of experience to her new role. Katy is a barrister and was called to the Bar a number of years ago. After a short time, she joined the then newly-formed Crown Prosecution Service, where she stayed for 10 years, first at a busy local branch in West London and then in HQ Fraud Casework.

Katy moved to what was then the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to be a senior prosecution lawyer dealing with a range of corporate and insolvency enforcement; in February 2006 she joined the Senior Civil Service and became one of two Deputy Director lawyer team leaders. The criminal enforcement teams moved to the Insolvency Service in January 2017 and since then, Katy has been busy developing the prosecution work and establishing an in house civil enforcement litigation team. She has also enjoyed working as part of the Insolvency Service Board and providing legal support across the Agency.

Katy is very much looking forward to working in |HSE in a new area of regulatory enforcement, especially one which has such a direct impact on people’s lives.
