“Katherine did an excellent job on the negotiation and sale of our family business. Before Katherine’s involvement, the deal had been stalled. Despite different agreements and complex issues, she found a way through the problems, and shepherded it to a successful close. We would recommend her to anyone needing advice on matters whether they be delicate or straight forward. We highly recommend her.”

– Guardians of Co-owner of Business

“As general counsel, I appreciate and look for lawyers who can work as team members to reach the goals and objectives of the company. Katherine was brought on board to handle a complex insurance property and business interruption matter after a large explosion at one of our facilities. She was key to identifying the issues and working through resolution strategies. Not only did we receive an excellent result, but we then worked together to revise some of our corporate and insurance contracts to better protect the company.”
