Overview

As Kate likes to say, she doesn’t lose sight of the forest in the trees. She recognizes that each of her clients has their own unique legal hurdles and she can contextualize their legal issues within the broader picture of their lives and businesses.

For many of Kate’s clients, those legal issues include tort liability and other commercial grounds, such as breach of contract. As a member of our Commercial Litigation Service Group, she often defends clients in the insurance industry.  

Kate represents clients in privacy related class action cases, many of which involve violations of the Illinois Biometric Privacy Act (BIPA). She represents companies in issues related to the use of fingerprint or hand scans for employee timekeeping, and the use of voice verification technology.

Outside of her legal practice, Kate is an active supporter of the PKD Foundation, which seeks treatment and a cure for polycystic kidney disease.
