Katie Ward

Director & Licensed Conveyancer

I graduated with a Law Degree from Keele University in 2005 and have spent my working life in conveyancing. I specialise in all areas of residential conveyancing including freehold, leasehold, unregistered, shared ownership, re-mortgage, transfer of equity and auction property work.

I have lived on the Leicestershire-Northamptonshire border all of my life and have fantastic local knowledge of the area.

Out of the office I enjoy tennis, badminton and rounders. I also take pride in supporting my home town football and rugby clubs, although my young family keeps me pretty busy nowadays, so catching a live game is few and far between.

Felicity Ryan

Senior Conveyancing Manager

I graduated with a Politics Degree from Lancaster University in 2000 but have spent my working life in conveyancing, both in Northampton and Milton Keynes.

I undertake all areas of residential conveyancing work including freehold, leasehold, unregistered and shared ownership.

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with friends and family, Pilates, watching the Saints and trying new cocktails!

Amy Smith ACILEx

Assistant Manager

I graduated with a Law Degree from Northampton University in 2014 and prior to joining Clarity, worked as a Fee Earner within a busy Conveyancing department in Northamptonshire. Currently I am studying to complete my CILEx Graduate Fast-Diploma, whilst working full-time here as Assistant Manager.

Having recently purchased my own property I fully understand how important it is to be kept up to date with the transaction from start to finish.

Away from the office I enjoy spending time with friends and family and trying to keep fit! Having recently completed a half marathon in March 2019 I am patiently waiting on a place for the London Marathon in 2020.

Amelia Gibbs


I started working in conveyancing when I finished school in 2015 as Legal Apprentice in a busy Northamptonshire law firm. After completing my CILEx Diploma in Property Law and gaining several years’ experience, I took a break to do some travelling.

Since July 2018 I have spent my time travelling around Europe and Asia as well as living in Australia but am now enjoying being back in the familiar streets of Northampton. I love spending time with my friends and finding new places to go out to eat and drink.

Amelia Drabble


I have recently graduated with my LLB degree from the University of Northampton and am now currently studying my masters LLM degree on a Saturday at the University of Birmingham, this is in order to obtain my goal of becoming a solicitor.

I understand the pressure of buying a property and moving can be a stressful period, with that in mind the team and I will always try help make the process run as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Esta-Jane Barlow

New Business Administrator

I started working in Conveyancing in September 2020 after finishing my studies in Childcare and deciding on a career change. I decided to start working in the property business after seeing first-hand the amazing experiences multiple family members have had whilst in the same field of work. Property must run through our veins!

In my spare time I love spending time with my friends and family, discovering new music and sometimes even sewing!

Amy Lawrence

Junior Paralegal

I am currently a student of The Open University, undertaking my (BA Hons) Social Sciences & Politics degree. I have recently began my career in Conveyancing with Clarity, and I really enjoy being here to help our clients to achieve their goals and dreams of buying and selling.

Outside of the office I enjoy fun times with my little girl; watching movies, baking, painting, dancing and helping her to take care of her pet hamster Ziggy.
