Kate Roggio Buck represents clients in an array of commercial litigation and bankruptcy disputes, including appellate matters, in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and other parts of the country. Because of her deep understanding of the Delaware trial and appellate courts, she often serves as lead counsel in those courts but is also retained as local Delaware counsel in varied disputes. Her experience extends to matters involving such areas as construction, real estate, products liability, directors and officers policies, compliance, creditors’ rights, environmental issues, and financial fraud.
Her bankruptcy work includes representing equipment lessors, landlords, utility providers, railways, vendors, banks, and other parties with interests in complex business reorganizations and liquidations. Kate works closely with clients to develop dispute resolution and litigation strategies tailored to help them achieve their business objectives.
An active member of McCarter’s Pro Bono Committee, Kate supervises the firms’ collaboration with the Pennsylvania Innocence Project. Her other pro bono work includes representing individuals, including children, in child welfare cases, immigration matters, and in animal welfare matters. Kate’s pro bono efforts earned her the McCarter & English “Changing Lives Award” and contributed to McCarter’s Delaware office receiving a Pro Bono Leadership Award from the Delaware State Bar Association.
Kate is a proud member of the firm’s Social Justice Task Force and is Co-Chair of the task force’s Criminal Justice subcommittee. The mission of McCarter’s Social Justice Project is to continually build on its work to dismantle structural racism and combat the impact of racial inequality in its communities.
