Katie Gettman brings legal counsel and business guidance to corporations, executives and business owners. Unlike most attorneys, she sees beyond the black and white. It’s her colorful, creative edge and business acumen that ensure clients have the solutions they need to avoid trouble, grow stronger and be secure. With over 13 years’ experience in the legal profession, including serving on The Dolan Company’s executive team as its in-house counsel, Katie brings a practical focus and energy to her work with clients. Clients rely on Katie to provide the most practical advice in helping them achieve their ultimate goals. Because she has had to manage businesses herself, she can easily step into any situation and find solutions that take into account legal and business issues.
In addition to managing her practice, Katie also serves as the Chair of the firm’s Corporate practice group. Her corporate experience extends to representing companies in mergers, stock sales and asset acquisitions, private placement offerings and subscription agreements. She often represents investors, handling all aspects related to the private placement and investment of funds and purchase of securities. She also counsels clients on general business matters, including vendor and customer contract negotiations, operations and project financing, management concerns and competitor disputes, software license agreements, master services agreements, statements of work and other intellectual property and web-based services agreements.
Public companies rely on Katie’s experience to support them with board governance and counseling, SEC and exchange rule compliance, Rule 144 and other stock transfer restrictions, drafting and review of press releases, 8-Ks, 10-Qs, 10-K-s and other periodic reporting.
