In addition to representing commercial clients in all stages of state and federal litigation, Kate routinely represents trade creditors, landlords, utility providers, vendors, banks, and other parties with interests in complex business reorganizations and liquidations. In these bankruptcy matters, which are often unfamiliar territory for businesses, Kate works closely with clients to develop strategies tailored to achieve the business objectives behind each specific case.
Regularly appearing at the trial and appellate levels in courts throughout the country, Kate offers clients significant courtroom experience, and has developed a particularly deep knowledge of the trial and appellate courts in Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. In recognition of that experience, other law firms often retain Kate as Delaware counsel to leverage her local knowledge and insights.
A member of McCarter’s Pro Bono Committee, Kate is committed to advocating for those who could not otherwise afford quality legal representation. She regularly represents individuals, including children, needing representation in Family Court and Immigration matters, and has also provided legal services to a number of animal rescue organizations focused on protecting the interests of abused or abandoned pets. These efforts have earned Kate the McCarter & English Pro Bono “Changing Lives Award” and contributed to McCarter’s Delaware office receiving a Pro Bono Leadership Award from the Delaware State Bar Association.
