Katie has been practicing law since 2008. She has a breadth of experience in corporate law, and her experience in intellectual property, corporate structuring, international corporate law, and with start-ups is especially valuable to G & G Law’s clients.
Katie, a Michigan transplant, lives in Old Town in Chicago with her crazy dog Cleo. When not working on client matters, you can often find Katie at the Montrose dog beach, running along the lake, or at one of the many restaurants in Old Town or Lincoln Park.
Katie came to Chicago by way of Ireland, though she is originally from Michigan. Katie attended Michigan State University for both her B.A. and her J.D.
After graduation, Katie moved to New York, where she worked for a boutique commercial litigation firm representing large and small businesses with contracts, advertising compliance, insurance matters, and general civil litigation. After a while in the big city, Katie packed it in and headed across the pond to Dublin, Ireland. While in Dublin, Katie received an LL.M in EU Commercial Law from the University College Dublin and had the opportunity to work in one of the top commercial law firms representing international corporations in their Commercial Court disputes. After three years in Dublin, Katie made the move to Chicago, the place she now fondly calls home.
Since graduation from law school, Katie has had the opportunity to assist a number of businesses and entrepreneurs from initial corporate structuring through state, federal, and international dispute and litigation matters; including actions involving contract disputes, trademarks, copyrights, and real property.
