Kathy’s career spans more than three decades as a litigator. She has significant experience working with complex litigation matters ranging from employment discrimination and employment benefits disputes, to unfair trade practices. Kathy also is experienced in handling disputes involving intellectual property, restrictive covenant and other agreements, breach of contract and warranty claims. Her clients include individuals, small, mid-sized and large corporations, as well as government entities.

In the last decade there has been exceptional growth in trust and estate litigation. Disputes arise between family members and with institutional trustees or fiduciaries more frequently. She represents individual and corporate personal representatives and trustees in litigation over the interpretation of trust and estate documents, a decedent's distribution elections, allegations of breach of trust and other breaches of fiduciary duty, and intra-beneficiary dispute.
