Katherine Fan 1985 – 2022
Hughes-Castell is deeply saddened by the passing of our wonderful Managing Director Katherine Fan, who died peacefully in her hometown of Sydney on May 30, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. Katherine was very loved and respected both within our company and the broader legal and law firm community. Everyone who knew Katherine experienced what a beautiful and vibrant person she was, always smiling, full of charm and sparkling energy.
Katherine first joined Hughes-Castell in 2010 and after moving to work at Morrison Foerster and Baker McKenzie, Katherine came ‘home’ in 2019 because Hughes-Castell has always been a family for our people. Katherine leaves behind an indelible mark in all our hearts. At every level of engagement, she was a force of nature. With clients and candidates, her charm, her professionalism, and her dedication made her a trusted adviser. With colleagues, she was a role model and a source of guidance and encouragement.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to Katherine’s family and close friends. Everyone in Hughes-Castell has been shaken by the loss of our dear Kat and she will be deeply missed by all. May her memory be a blessing and an inspiration for all of us.
Rest in Peace Katherine Fan, 1985 – 2022
