Kate grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which is where she discovered her passion for the law during her first legal internship with the fast-paced Defender Association of Philadelphia. Throughout her three years at Albany Law, Kate focused her legal studies to the area of Intellectual Property Law and Entrepreneurship Law. Having been offered a position to join the Corporate office of General Electric, Kate worked at GE Corporate and served as a Legal Intern for GE’s Intellectual Property law and Business Transactions group — GE Ventures. Because of her work with Intellectual Property law attorneys in-house at GE, Kate is knowledgeable on building extensive trademark and patent portfolios.

Given her background, Kate is also available to assist clients on IP-related business matters, including strategies for monetizing patent portfolios.
