Katheryn is a management-side lawyer who has devoted her career to resolving workplace disputes faced by private and public employers. She has successfully litigated and resolved claims for wrongful discharge, discrimination, and violations of leave and wage and hour laws in individual and class action lawsuits in trial and appellate courts throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Katheryn takes great pride in helping employers avoid employment claims by preparing effective workplace policies and counseling them through reductions in force, separations and terminations. She also advises managers and Human Resource professionals in organizations of all sizes on best practices to manage leave and navigate through the interactive process to accommodate disabled employees. Katheryn also helps employers investigate workplace misconduct, harassment and discrimination, and take effective remedial action to avoid costly lawsuits.

Katheryn is experienced in preparing executive employment agreements, effective covenants not to compete, and trade secrets and intellectual property agreements. She works closely with business executives to enforce non-competition agreements and respond to cease and desist letters.  Katheryn provides interactive EEO training to managers, including anti-harassment and diversity training, and frequently speaks at employment law seminars.

Katheryn’s practice spans Alaska, Washington and Oregon. She considers it an honor to counsel her clients as they adapt to the way people work in the Pacific Northwest. Katheryn counts her partnership with her clients as the most rewarding aspect of her work. She is continually inspired by the profound impact that her employer clients make when they create positive workplace cultures where diversity and team collaboration are valued, enabling the organization to thrive.

Our Labor, Employment & Benefits Team knows you need practical answers to employment issues and litigation so that you can maintain focus on your core business. We are committed to understanding your business goals and preferences, and team with you to provide cost-effective, strategic and creative advice, and litigation representation.

Our hallmark is a collaborative relationship between you and us to obtain your desired results, while enhancing the workplace environment for both management and staff. And, if you want alternative fee arrangements, we are at the forefront in creating predictable and efficient budgets, which allow for you to better forecast and manage your own budgeting. We minimize costs through early case assessment, collaboration regarding budgets and evaluation of the risks and benefits of different approaches to the issue or case we are handling for you. We offer flat fee programs to respond to demand letters, most agency charges and single-plaintiff lawsuits. In addition, we can create retainer arrangements for ongoing advice work, as well as manager and employee training.
