Karin Horsley


An attentive lawyer, who guides clients through the complexities of both residential and commercial property law.

A partner in Greenwoods GRM’s residential conveyancing team, Karin, who qualified as a solicitor in 1979, has over forty years of experience in acting for a variety of clients in residential transactions.  Her recent experience has included acting for clients in buying, selling and investing in the most expensive areas in London as well as country houses and estates.

Karin believes it is vital to develop an understanding of clients’ needs and, especially in relation to commercial transactions, businesses so that our residential and commercial teams can provide the best possible service. Her approach is to work with clients – to be part of their team, to understand their needs and to deliver the outcome they require as effectively and efficiently as possible.  Karin encourages team members to get out to see properties and sites and to meet the people involved.  This approach brings transactions to life for everyone.

Amongst commentators, Karin is regarded as a Leading Individual (The Legal 500 2021), ‘very experienced’ and ‘absolutely excellent in terms of property law’ (Chambers and Partners 2017).  She has won praise from clients for her ‘strong leadership and skill at managing complex deals’ and for being ‘particularly skilled at handling property portfolio concerns for corporate clients’ (Chambers and Partners 2016).

Karin has amassed a wealth of experience in all aspects of property transactions and acts for a wide variety of clients. Some recent examples include:

  • overseas investors who are building up a portfolio of multi-million-pound properties;
  • business clients requiring new office premises in London; and
  • clients acquiring development sites for new flagship premises.

Outside work, Karin spends time with her family, including her pet Labrador Smirnoff, and enjoys reading, yoga and gardening.
