Katie's practice focuses on trust and estate litigation, protective proceedings, and general commercial litigation including investment and securities fraud litigation.  She has been involved in a wide range of complex commercial litigation in state and federal courts, including contract and business valuation disputes, banking and financial services industry litigation, insurance coverage actions, probate litigation, and FINRA arbitrations.  Katie is particularly interested in complex financial and fiduciary issues.
