There’s nothing as frustrating as legal roadblocks to business growth. My goal is to help clients jump the hurdles and plan ahead for what’s down the road so they can focus on what they do best and rest easy in their success.
Katie began her professional life helping businesses grow – launching new products and market development. After law school, she turned her attention to those in financial distress; first in her role as career law clerk for the Bankruptcy Court in the District of Maine, and then in her representation of commercial debtors. Today, Katie has bridged the two ends of her legal experience into a general commercial practice where she provides practical advice about business risks while supporting and encouraging client growth and development.
Katie’s practice encompasses a full suite of commercial legal services – from advice on entity formation, to contract drafting and review, asset acquisition and sales, regulatory compliance, corporate governance, litigation and guidance through financial distress. Clients may come to her for help on a specific legal issue, but they choose to stay for the support, advice and guidance she provides through the complexities facing business owners today.
Katie is Co-Chair of the Maine State Bar Association’s Bankruptcy Section and serves as the Portland-area alumni chapter leader for Boston College Law School.
Katie worked previously and Marcus Clegg, and prior to that clerked for Hon. Peter Cary and Hon. James Haines (Ret.) at the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maine.
She is a resident of North Yarmouth, Maine.
