Fladgate is delighted to announce that corporate partner Mythily Katsaris has been shortlisted for the professions category in the Women of the Future (WOF) Awards 2017 in association with Aviva. The WOF Programme aims to build a community of influential women determined not only to build fruitful professional and personal relationships with one another, but to be advocates for an exciting new generation of business talent. The WOF Awards are a platform for successful young women in Britain and seek to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the UK’s wealth of female talent. Now in their eleventh year, the awards continue to discover the inspirational stars of tomorrow across diverse sectors. The awards ceremony will take place on 15 November at the London Hilton, Park Lane.
Mythily joined Fladgate as an associate in 2007 and was promoted to equity partner in 2013, becoming the firm’s youngest ever partner. In the last four years she has co-managed Fladgate’s India practice, consolidating the firm’s reputation as one of the leading advisers to midcap Indian companies, non-resident Indians and high net worth individuals. Mythily is actively involved in business development for the firm, and frequently travels abroad, often at the request of clients, to meet with them and their referrals. She has also played an integral role in identifying and developing a niche practice in the acquisition and management of luxury assets such as vintage cars, yachts, private jets and helicopters; she heads Fladgate’s luxury assets group.
Mythily is also a devoted wife and mother to two children, both of whom were born whilst she has been at Fladgate.
Mythily is keenly involved in the diversity and inclusion agenda at Fladgate. She takes her responsibilities to the partnership seriously, and has had a significant input into the development and implementation of initiatives relating to family friendly policies and improving the access to legal careers of disadvantaged individuals.
At the same time as managing her practice and family, Mythily undertakes a substantial amount of pro bono legal work for UK and Indian charities. In 2016, she was appointed a Trustee of Sense UK, a national charity that supports people who are deafblind or have sensory impairments or complex needs. She has also been instrumental in promoting the activities of Sense International in India, raising significant sums through the charitable events she has organised.
The chairman of Fladgate, Charles Wander, commented:
“Mythily is held in high esteem by clients and colleagues, and has built a great practice encompassing wealthy private clients and a range of businesses. She is a strong-minded and brave female partner, who is a role model for many associates and junior partners. She is admired by them as a driven and resilient professional, with an abundance of positivity and enthusiasm for taking on challenges. Her team members describe her as a motivating, trustworthy and knowledgeable partner, who also exhibits care and attention to their development. We are immensely proud of her and congratulate her on this acknowledgement of her many contributions to both business and society.”
